our first father's day

Father's day just passed and being a new mom, I was eager to create something fun (but easy) to celebrate it for Paul. Thanks to inspiration from a couple of moms in my various mom communities, here's what I came up with:

A scrapbook dedicated to housing all of Liam's Father's Day creations/cards, etc:

The scrapbook is from Staples (or Bureau en Gros). I kept the plastic cover to protect the picture. The image on the cover was made from product backing (something with chalkboard speech bubbles I bought a while back), a photo of the 2 of them, and alpha stickers from my stash. 

Since Liam can't make his own card this year, I made the first one in the album for him:

Took a photo of Liam against the wall, cropped out the extra bits I didn't want in the photo, then added the text in PSE. The font is Return to Sender, which I downloaded earlier for the chalkboard poster project. I actually took the "quote" from an ad campaign because I thought it was sweet and fitting for the beginning of an album celebrating their relationship over the years.

Speaking of which, the rest of the album will be made up of Liam's creations for Paul (maybe with a bit of Mama's help from time to time), which is why I wanted to use the 8.5 x 11 format (perfect for sheets of paper featuring his artwork). So that's it, easy peasy Father's Day gift full of sentimental value as a keepsake for Dad.
