sweeties sketches page

I have tried something new today, a scrapbook page instead of a card. This is a first for me I am never quite sure how to lay out a page so I give up before I begin. After finding a few blogs that give you page sketches I have tried the August sketch challenge at Sweeties Sketches . My biggest problem was trying to post the image because I scan in my creations and this page wouldn't fit so I had to do two scans, I hope you can work out the page from this.
This is my Dad, the photo on the left is my favourite picture of him, it shows his great smile and sense of humour, he is so funny. The one on the right is another of my favourites even if I did chop a bit of his head off. THis was taken at his 50th birthday(almost 13 years ago)I organised a suprise party for him, he had no idea, it was heaps of fun. I might post a couple more photos of it at the bottom so you can see how much of a dag he is.

Ok now about the cardstock it is all stampin up papers and not quite navy and old olive card. The always on my mind forever in my heart stamp is also from stampin up. Hope you like my page, and the photos of my dad.
