A Wallet for DAD

I made this cute little wallet photo album for my son for his birthday. I filled it with pictures of his 'kids' - his basset hound dogs - Daisy Mae and Roscoe. This DAD stamp is from the Mainly Men set by Amuse.

I printed these digital pictures on white card stock and cut around the edges with decorative edge scissors. The Best Friend stamp is from the Friends Fur Ever set by MFT.

Then I stamped sentiments - some right on the pictures and some on the opposite pages. The one on the left is by Rubber Necker Stamps, the paw is from Art Impressions Clear Stamps, and the one on the right is from Thoughtful Phrases by Verve Visual.

Roscoe is the little boy - almost two years old. When I grow up is from the Father Figure set, With Love from me to You is from the Feeling Groovy set - both by Verve Visual.

This cute birthday cake stuffed toy was actually a gift to Daisy for one of her birthdays. Daughter stamp from Women of Life, Happy Birthday from Birthday Basics - both by PTI.

I found the tutorial for this fun photo wallet on Jackie Topa's blog. I changed it a little - embossing the outside piece using the Mini Mosaics Cuttlebug folder and embossing it in clear embossing powder to make it look like leather (or aligator!)

Here's Roscoe again hiding a dog cookie in his bed for safe keeping! Son -from Men of Life by PTI, Everything I do -from Feeling Groovy - Verve Visual
Here they are together on their mum April's lap - Roscoe is gnawing on her hand (in a playful way- LOL!) Sentiment on left from Father Figure: Verve Visual, Puppy Hugs from MFT Friends Fur Ever.
I finished up the 'Wallet' pages with a birthday verse for Josh and signed it for the puppies. I think he'll like it! Verse from Birthday Basics by PTI.

Thanks for dropping by!!
