The stamp is an Iroquois proverb and is a relatively new addition to the Quietfire Design store. It just makes me think of big men and how gentle they can be with small children. Perfect for embellishing a layout about a father or grandfather interacting with kids. This particular photo is from my childhood that I scanned from a 35 mm slide. The resolution is not the greatest but it brings back fond memories of my grandpa who died in 1976.
I used the Way with Words 'Happy' die from the Happy Anniversary set for the page title. I just sponged a little green ink on the diecut cut from white cardstock.
The patterned paper is from the new Elizabeth Craft Designs 'Through the Lens' 6x6 patterned paper packs. I used three different sheets (two from the wood set and one from the stone series) and layered them under the photo. I liked the vintage textured feel of them. The stitched ovals, clouds and the pail/shovel die are also from Elizabeth Craft Designs. Although the latter is from a palm tree set there is no reason it can't work for a playground or sand box theme. Like the 'happy' from the Happy Anniversary die set, remember to think outside the box a little when looking at your dies.
