Documenting Dad with Happy Go Lucky

Good morning! This week, the design team members are showing you Father's Day projects and I made mine using the Happy Go Lucky Daily Diary Kit. I decided to make a spread honoring the wonderful father that my husband is and even got our 5 year old daughter in on the process to make it a little extra special.

I made a 6"x12" insert to throw into my regular Project Life album and used a lot of the Simple Stories Life Documented Cards that were included in the kit.

To make the camera embellishment, I used a circle punch on a 3x4 card from the kit and then cut little notches onto the ends "life captured" sticker to make it look like a banner. The polka dot banner behind is hand cut from a 4x6 card.

I asked my five year old what she liked most about her dad. Her answers were sweet and funny but I think also point to the larger point of how good of a father he is to them. Plus it'll be nice to have her perspective at this age documented.

Even though I've been using my typewriter for journaling for quite a while now, I am by no means an expert at it. I almost always have awkward spaces in my journaling just as I did this time when typing out my daughter's answers. So I took one of the border stickers from the Echo Park 12x12 alpha sheet in the kit and trimmed it down to size. Then I added phrase stickers from Simple Stories and a wood veneer heart to put the finishing touches on that card.

How will you be documenting Father's Day using your Happy Go Lucky kits? We'd love to see what you make. If you haven't already, join the NoelMignon Members group on Facebook (you don't even have to be a member!) and share with us what you are making using your kits.
