Tribute to a Great Dad

It's late and I should be sleeping. Another long and busy day tomorrow. But, finally, I get the chance to blog and I can't resist taking this chance to share what the KiDS and I made for THE Oustanding Young Man (got it?) of our lives.

The week before Fathers' Day I asked the KiDS to write ten things they love about their Papa. Sarah and Kahlo were quite excited to do the assignment. Diego was quite blase about it. He said that he would just treat his Papa to the Fantastic Four movie, and indeed, that's just what they did last Sunday. A little male-bonding time.

Sarah came up with this:

At the back of which is her interpretation of the best day ever.

Kahlo needed help writing down her top 10 but all the sentiments are hers.

I then summarized their list to come up with the top 10 for our mini-album.

Mini cards inside the envelope:

The Process:
I finally got to use the mini-album which I bought at the September 2006 Scrapfest, and also my paper scraps. I decided that this was also the best time to use the stickers that Manang sent me last year. This is my first mini-album - I only ever did LOs and that altered photo box. I enjoyed it so much I think I might be doing more such albums in the future.

I did the layouts Saturday afternoon while my KiDS did the journaling and the doodling. They also made mini-cards to be put inside the envelope at the back of the album. They had fun sneaking in and out of the bedroom, making sure that Papa doesn't see us at work. It was a big secret. It is truly a collaborative work of love for THE man. And of course, on THE day, it was much appreciated. He says he will always keep it with him and whenever anyone asks him about his family, he will simply show it off. Syempre, proud mama naman ako.

Materials Used:
Simple Scrapbooks mini-album, my scraps of Making Memories PPS, EK Success stickers, MAMBI rub-ons, Technique Tuesday and CE stamps, Colorbox ink.

Akala ko ba kamo di ka productive lately ha... na-touch talaga ako dito sa mini-album na ito. You should've heard my oohhhsss and aahhhss while reading your children's commentary. You have one heck of a great family there, Lee. And you definitely are a very lucky woman (I bet you already know that but I had to say it just the same) :D
