Happy Father's Day & Crate Paper Love!

Happy Father's Day to all the great dads out there! Whether you're a father by blood, marriage or are important to your families, especially your children.  I hope you get spoiled today! :)

My kids are blessed to have a father who is 110% involved in their lives.  He never hesitates to put them first... He looks out for them, takes care of them, gets up for 7:00 a.m. hockey practices, volunteers at their school, does the French verbs, answers Brendan's 100000 questions about history and/or geography, helps with math so my head doesn't explode.... drives them to soccer, amuses Olivia and tries her dance moves (he's got 2 left feet so I guess we can also add comedian to the list, as I crack up laughing whenever I see him trying to do the dance moves!) and just plain helps out where he can. Most importantly, he loves them unconditionally.  Unconditional love .....all a child really needs to grow up, don't you think?

Happy Father's Day Joe!  We love you so much.  Here is a couple of pictures of my three from today:

I also wanted to share a layout I created with Crate Paper's Pretty Party line.  I've got mad love for Crate Paper products.  I just love to work with them! What I also like is that with each new release, we're seeing more great product and it doesn't look like their last five releases.  Some companies tend to keep things the same (and wear them out) and release similar product at each show but with a different name, colour scheme and a new embellishment or two. Crate Paper always surprises me - looking forward to what they have up their sleeve for CHA-S. :)

Here's my beautiful girl.  I tried to channel my inner "Melanie Blackburn"! LOL.  She's a dear friend of mine and I admire her work. There is a ton of inspiration on her blog so go say hello, if you don't read her blog already.

This layout also features an Elle's Studio tag  from the "One and Only" line.  I was lucky enough to win a crop challenge over at The Paper Passion and Elle & Laci (TPP Owner) sent a very generous gift pack of the latest and greatest from Elle's Studio.  I was so excited and couldn't wait to create with them.  Thanks again Elle & Laci! :)

Can't believe the weekend is already over and Monday is upon us.  I think I'm okay with it though....  it means I'm one day closer to summer vacation.  I can't wait to have some down time and just enjoy my family.
