My Grandfather (Red Rubber Designs)



Today I want to share a layout I designed using a couple of my Red Rubber Designs stamp sets "Hope Perches" and "Background Soup".   I recently won the monthly Blog Hop prize with Red Rubber Designs.  Hop over to their blog and follow it so you can get a chance at winning as well!  

This is my grandfather in his younger days.  He loved to hunt, fish, and garden so I thought that a nature stamp set was just perfect to use on a layout for him.  


He was a wonderful Godly man who loved his family and who was very special to me.  We shared the same birthday.  I remember spending summers with my grandparents as a child.  I remember him singing to wake me up in the morning and that I loved his cologne and how he smelled.   I didn't know my father, so he was the man in my life I looked up to.  I wish he had lived closer to us and that I could have spent more time with him.  Special memories of a special man.

Thanks for letting me share!
Have a blessed weekend, Melisa

Project Details

Patterned Paper : My Mind's Eye (Hobby Lobby)

I used Stampin' Up Wild Wasabi to stamp the background images (polka dots and random letters).  I used VersaFine Vintage Sepia and Palette L'Amour Red to stamp the bird images and sentiment.  I created the tags from thin patterned paper, crumbled them up and then rubbed brown ink over the wrinkled area's and edges.
