Happy Father's Day!!!

Ok- here is your warning- this is a long post!!! I just have sooo much I want to share!

First, Happy Father's Day!

This is my dad. We all met for lunch at Oreganos yesterday. If you have never eatin there- then you are missing out on the best dessert! Yummo!!
And here is my DH. I got him the outfit as a Father's Day gift. He loves Hawaiian shirts. Did you notice that my dad does too? I swear I married the blond version of my dad!!! Something weird- Scott is always squinting in pictures. I can't find one where his eyes are open!!!

Now on to some stamped creations!!

First- this is the card that I made for my dad and for my DH. I told you they are a lot alike- so the same card worked for both!!!

I used Nichole Heady's wallet tutorial. Isn't it adorable!!! The DSP is western Sky and that cute sentiment is from Papertrey. Nichole actually used a sewing machine for all of her stitching. I had to make faux stitching with a paper piercer and a white gel pen. I think it turned out cute! My dad's "wallet" had a Starbucks gift card in it. But Scott's was empty!!

I made this card for my mom to give to my dad. It was super simple! And a Hawaiian shirt just like my dad loves! I used the Spring Break DSP. (I am LOVING that stuff!!) I cut the DSP to about 3 3/4x5 1/2. I folded it in half and then cut a small line done the top middle. I folded that paper down to make the collar. I cut the pockets out a of a scrap and added some brads. I stuck a piece of Old Olive cardtsock inside the shirt so my mom would have a place to write. The sentiment is also from Papertrey. In order to keep the shirt closed. I added a couple of brads under the collar where you can't see. My mom has already asked for a new insert so that she can reuse the card! She'll probably give it to Scott!!!!

Here is the card that I made for my mom to give Scott. Isn't it sweet that she gives her son-in-law a Father's Day gift? I used the Family Accessories stamp set and the Jersey Shore DSP. The cardstock is Real Red and More Mustard. Here is my tip for making the circles equidistant from one another: Start by adhering the DSP onto the Mustard cardstock. Then use scrap paper to punch out 3 circles. Snail these circles onto the strip. It is easier to measure and eyeball them this way. And if they don't look perfect- carefully move them. Then use the circle punch again to punch the scrap circles out of the DSP strip. Does that make sense???

I actually glued a white strip down and then put the DSP strip onto the card with dimensionals. Then I took the baseball stamp and added it. It worked since the stamp is so small.

Now on to the story of the box: My mom bought Scott 2 tickets to a Diamondbacks game. She asked me to make a baseball box for her to put them in. So I bought this round box at Target and I used White acrylic paint for the lid. I tried to put some red faux stitching on it- but it didn't look right. My hubby came in and so I told him that my mom wanted it for my dad. He took one look at it and told me that I was doing it all wrong. He repainted the lid and added the stitching (with my Copic) himself. He made his own gift box without even knowing it! He sure was surprised when my mom gave it to him filled with game candy and the tickets!

So here is my DH with all 4 of his babies. I took this pic BEFORE church this morning. That is why my DH is still smiling! He had to teach Sunday school this morning and he ended up with 30 kids all by himself. They were all between the ages of 2-4. He was kinda cranky after that!!! But who wouldn't be?! It just so happens that church went long today!!!!

Now I have to show you a few pics that I took yesterday of the twins. The other 2 kiddos were at my parents house so we got some alone time with Danika and Makenzie. We painted nails (Scott helps by drying them), put on makeup (Scott put eyeshadow on their cheeks!) and I flat ironed their hair!

Aren't they just adorable?!!! Danika normally has curly hair so we were all amazed by how long her hair is when straight!

Ok I am done!!! See you tomorrow for another scrapbook layout from my Got Sketch Class!
