photography idea for Father’s Day

Hi everybody! It’s Bridget! Recently, I have been searching for fabulous Father’s Day gift ideas for my darling hubby and just haven’t found anything that I loved. 

And since I’m always playing mamarazzi (as my nine-year old refers to it), I decided why not give him photographs of our most precious gifts! I loved the idea of using the large craft letters and have the kids each hold a letter to spell out “DAD,” but since I hadn’t made it to the craft store {gasp!} I made my kids BE the letters instead. And I thought the hardwood floors were the perfect backdrop.

In my digital scrap-booking software, I made a quick collage of the pictures with some masculine embellishments and next we’ll frame in in a 12″ x 12″ metal photo panel – perfect for his desk. But you don’t need my software for this project. With some fun paper and scrapbook supplies from your local craft store you can recreate this idea in minutes! 

There was a lot of giggling and many, many outtakes, but the end result was share-worthy!

As always, we hope you’re inspired to craft, bake and create!

    For families with 2 children, the A can be made by using on child’s leg to cross in the middle (leg is bent at the hip)

    Love this! Just finished taking pics with my 3 children. Giggles quickly turned to yelling because they could not be still. Much fun, nonetheless! Thx
