The layout that caught my attention used a stamp I purchased but had not used. I loved it but was not sure how I would use it on a layout. Iris is a master at design and used this crossword puzzle stamp perfectly. I had to give it a shot. Iris's layout is much more beautiful and balanced than mine so I really do hope you check her layout "12-30-11." It is the most fun I've had in awhile stamping on my layout.
Red Album ProjectThis layout is of my dad dressed in a tuxedo posing outside a building on the Air Force Base where he was stationed. I don't know the occasion, but dad had a photo of a friend who was dressed for the occasion as well. His friend's name was on the back of the photo, Billy F. Butler from Kansas, MO! It was important to Dad to include him in his album so I thought it was important to include him on this layout.
