Special Time by Patti Hamil

Hi! Patti Hamil here today sharing a layout about one of my very favorite memories, reading with my Daddy as a child. I had one book that was my favorite, "Jasper the Giraffe." It was about a giraffe that never got any mail like the rest of the animals. One day he broke his leg and was surprised when he got lots of "get well" wishes in the mail! I'm not sure if that's the actual book in the photo or not!

I used the Dazzling Doily Die from the Fantasia Collection. I thought it suited a heritage page. I started by cutting 4 blue doilies and 2 light yellow doilies. I then cut each doily in half.

I used the Fancy That Embossing Folder from the Sweet Dreams Collection and embossed a 12" strip of light yellow cardstock.

I used the Hyper Magical Embossing Folder from the Fresh and Fun Collection with light green cardstock and cut leaves out of it.

I cut a few circles of  random size and placed them on the page as well.

I matted my photo with a piece of cardstock that I embossed with the Fancy That Embossing Folder in yellow, with a solid blue mat behind it for the base.

I added faux stitching with my Zig markers, made a couple of blooms with the Daisy Nesting Dies and then put it all together! I some old alpha stickers for the title.

Thanks for stopping by today!
