Working on an album for Pa!

Hello everyone!  Anyone that has been around our blog for a while knows that "Pa" is my Dad and he makes cards and scrapbooks!  He also makes awesome doll houses!  Well he is turning 70 in June and I thought what can I get the guy that has everything?  Then it hit me, he loves, loves taking pictures and he posts a ton of them on Facebook. I snuck on and downloaded some of his pictures and I am going to make him an album!!

Here is with his Mom (94 years old, when she passed about a year ago) and his grandson, my nephew. This will be page 1.  Only 19 more to go!!

For this page I used:

StampinUP! Not Quite Navy Card stock
The blue paper and the circle are from a pack I bought that was already cut into shapes.
StampinUP Permanent Parade for all the stamped banner
Missing You Stamp and the Tag (its a die cut, sooo cute) is from My Creative Time,love this!!
The letters are from Tim Holtz Alternations - Typeset
The flower is most of my stash, except the bottom silver layer, it is a cupcake holder that I cut!  I saw that trick in the Scrapbooks Etc. Magazine!

Thanks for stopping by!!
