Thank you so much for joining me this week as we talk about those manly pages and various ways to design, color and go outside the box with them as well. It's our final day here and I wanted to make sure there is one important fella we don't forget - Grandpa. I know for me personally, this is something I wish I had more of for my own grandfathers. I have only a few photos and just a few stories to go along with them. I'm trying to change that for my girls and get their grandpas not only in the photos, but also get some stories down for them as well.
My first layout isn't necessarily all about my father-in-law, but the love that my youngest daughter has for her grandpa. She sees the "job" of being a grandpa as a rather glamorous one and hopes to attain that status some day (shh...don't tell her it's anatomically impossible!)
This next layout I wanted to create to show the connection that my girls' grandpa has with them. They are so lucky to have 2 grandpas who not only love them, but truly want to be connected with them as they grow up.
I love the detail that Marnie used to create this layout about her daughter's love for her grandpa. You don't notice it in the larger photo as much, but when she zooms in you can see that her daughter is holding on to her grandpa's hand for the family photo. I love how Marnie focused on this small detail.
She went on to show another aspect of her daugher's relationship with her grandpa on football game day! I know her daughter will one day look back and not only appreciate the photo, but also the layout and story behind it.
I think every family has that milestone even when a child surpasses their parents and/or grandparents in height. I know my own daughter is inching closer and closer to grandma and she's beyond excited about that! Marnie documents that here when her son surpassed his grandpa in height!
Thank you so much for joining me this week and I hope you were able to draw some inspiration from the collective's ideas and pages.
And before I go, one last favorite manly line from this year's CHA show. This one from a company near and dear to my heart, Pebbles and their I Love You More line.
