I created a special card for Johan’s first Father’s Day last year. This layout continues the journey…
I shot this photo of Johan and Joel while Joel was very ill and went in and out of hospital last year. I’ve used the same poem for this layout as I used on the card. Freely translated it goes like this…
Walk with me daddy
Hold my hand while we’re walking
There’s so much I want to learn
And so much I don’t understand
Teach me how to avoid all the danger every day
Teach me to always do my best
And be happy for who I am
Every child needs a loving hand
So they can have support and security
Come and hold my hand daddy
We have a long way to walk
I have used Sofiero and Vintage Summer Basics scraps for this layout…
All flowers are by Wild Orchid Crafts. Chipboard from Scrap FX, pearls from Michael’s. Lace from LSS.
I have used a stripe from one of the Sofiero papers for this beautiful Tim Holtz frame (painted with ordinary white gesso).
The acryllic frame is from Prima, doily by Wild Orchid Crafts. I’ve used scraps from Sofiero and Vintage Summer Basics to create the little circles. I’ve used Ingvild Bolme chalks and Distress Ink to stamp sewing patterns on them and the larger background scraps.
And here’s what the old Father’s Day card looked like last year, created with the wonderful Vintage Autumn Basics collection…
