Wonderful Dad Minibook {HSS122}

Pin It Now! This week's challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is an inspiration photo.  Peacocks, and beautiful colors. I took the challenge figuratively and literally...I'm "Proud as a Peacock" to have a wonderful dad for my sons, and the colors work great for a masculine project!
What do you think? The colors are fabulous!  I even like the dotted background. This was an easy challenge for me, and I hope you'll join in, too.  
 Here are a couple of details...
 The cover is window sheet, inside are alternating World Spectacular DSP, Patterned Paper Pack, and Crumb Cake.
 The Crumb Cake pages are stamped with images from You're Amazing in Versamark.
The cover has all kinds of fun bits!
The banner is punched with the new Ticket Duo Builder from Tempting Turquoise, and sponged with Old Olive and Midnight Muse. The letters on the banner are hand cut from World Spectacular DSP.
All of the circle punches and words are from World Spectacular DSP.
The star is punched with Natural Composition Specialty DSP.
Stamp sets are Blue Ribbon and You're Amazing. "Dad" is from Family Reunion.
Midnight Muse border is embossed with new Chevron Embossing Folder.

I'm going to fill it with thank you notes, pictures of my boys and dad doing things together, photos of vacations his hard work has provided and some of his favorite things.

Thanks for visiting today!  Have a blessed day.  Erika
