Fathers Day Layout

I made this layout to layout to celebrate fatherhood. It is a photo taken of my husband and father-in-law with our daughter when she was only about 5 monthes old. I loved that we had the three generations together, so I decided to age it and create a vintage look.
Using distress inks and cut'dry'foam I aged the photo and then added "vintage " elements by adding hinges from B&Q, handle and memory frames (with smaller images it it) that I had aged with alcohol inks.
I also copied a lovely poem about fathers onto a journalling card that I had and put my journalling behind the photo flap.
Found Pink Gems blog and website today and really like their stamps. I loved Mimi in the bathtub so much I had to get her.
