Welcome to the Echo Park Paper Design Team Blog Hop!

Family-Man-Blog-Graphic

Today the Echo Park Paper Design Team is showcasing projects from our latest collections. I chose to share this layout using the Family Man kit:

ep_familyman_layout_wendysue

I had this photo of Brad and Seth from 2006, just waiting to be scrapbooked. 

ep_familyman_layout_detail2_wendysue

It’s so true – Brad is such a good Dad.  I had a friend comment recently that she’d seen Brad jumping on the trampoline with the kids and she thought he must be such a fun dad.  He is truly a great dad … & way more fun than me!!!

I thought the mix of ties and tools were a fun little addition to the corner! :o)

  5. My amazing husband is also a WONDERFUL Daddy! I love watching him with our girls, he has taught the oldest to fish and at six she now catches more than Daddy when they go fishing, LOL! Next he's going to teach the 3 year old too!

  6. My dad is a great grandpa. We visited him for a few days and my kids had a blast! He is quite the gardener, baseball player, golfer, fisherman and hunter. My kids (and I actually) always learn great things when spending time with him!

  7. My husband is an amazing dad! I love watching him play with the kids, he lights up their eyes when he comes home from work! I love your layout, it's beautiful!

  8. My dad is an awesome dad. He had two girls but chose to make us well rounded individuals. We were never told we couldn't do something because we were girls. He took us fishing, we helped work on cars, and we went to car shows, etc. Now he's a gramps to my nephew and it's so fun to see him be a grandparent. smiles all around. I wish Echo Park had made this a Regular collection but it's still great as a mini theme. love it!

  9. My dad knows that he missed out on a lot of stuff when my siblings and I were younger due to having to work and support the family. He has made it a point not to let that happen with his grandkids and enjoys babysitting to get to spend time with them. I love the masculine layout you did. I struggle with masculine themed projects....I guess I just don't have the right papers! TFS!

  10. Loving your layout! I love the twine wrapped across the top of the page, the tools and ties together and the title! So cute! My dad is amazing because he has my same sense of humor. We can laugh for hours and never get sick of it. What a great quality to have!

  11. my dad is super cool he knows a lot of stuff like electronics and mechanicals, very handy dandy. I love to see him draw he's very good at it, my sister and brother got his talent in drawing. I'm his number 1 fan even at fixing cars. Beautiful layout using the collection.

  45. My husband makes a great dad because he always wants to be out and doing something. I'm more of a homebody in many ways, so it's good for them to see the other side of the coin.
    Thanks for sharing your LO! I love the ties and wrench in the corner! I think it's very clever visually!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Great layout! Love the ties+wrench "banner".
    My hubby sounds like yours - he lives to have fun with the kids! He's the one who takes them on the roller coasters, plays frisbee, soccer or bocce ball with them outside, takes them for bike rides...the kids laugh (and yes, sometimes roll their eyes - they are preteens!) at his antics. Me, I just smile and laugh and thank my lucky stars that he's such a great dad for our kids. :)

  51. My DH is an amazing son. His father passed away, so now he takes care of his mother. Every weekend he goes out and buys her groceries, mows her lawn, does her dishes, cooks for her, and anything else she needs. He drives out to her house ( she lives in a different community than us), and puts out her garbage for collection. She has other sons who live much closer,and do much less. I am VERY proud of him!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Somehow I completely missed this collection--I'm going to have to hunt it down!

    My Dad, what makes him unique? That he is tough as leather to everyone but me. Calls me punkin. Still, and I'm going to be 34 in a few days.

    ReplyDelete
  53. This kit is very masculine. Love it! My dad is in his 70s but he's more like a big kid. He's funny and naughty!! He likes to play tricks on me and my family... ;)

  91. That's a great layout! Love the banner strip and the use of the circles as a scallop edge.

    My dad doesn't really have a sense of humor. The entire family can be laughing at something and he would look at us and say "what's so funny about that". That comment would always get us all laughing again.

    ReplyDelete
  92. LOve the look of this collection.
    Hubby is an outdoors man and hunter/gatherer, I love the way he takes the time to show his wee grandsons all the important things and know he will continue to teach them for as long as he is able to do so.
