A Scrapbook Layout for a Fabulous Dad!

I have but one son-in-law and he is a fabulous dad.  How could I not help but to do another Easter layout featuring him and Little's sister. 

Let's Break It Down!
Graphic 45 Secret Garden paper collection
Graphic 45 June inspired project

Blue Fern Studios chipboard.  What a beautifully detailed piece.  It's perfect for a Secret Garden.

Tags, made from Graphic 45 paper, chipboard piece, and American Crafts cardstock.

I traced one of Graphic 45's chipboard tags onto a piece of Secret Garden paper, stamped and added the bow.

At Halloween I purchased two of each of the chipboard elements from Graphic 45. So I used a couple of tag pieces to create this element.  The bottom layer I adhered brown cardstock, sanded and inked around the edges.  I did the same with the top layer using a scrap piece of Secret Garden.  I added a bow (I think May Arts Ribbon) and key from Tim Holtz's idea-ology line. 

Vintage lace from my mother.  Actually, this is a piece from a much wider crochet pieces.  I trimmed the edge off for a smaller piece and the wider piece is intact.

Graphic 45 with Blue Fern just opens up the world of possibilities with my scrapbooking.   By any chance can you tell how much I enjoy these two companies?
