SHOWCASING DAN THE RECORD MAN

Hello! This is Janis blogging here at Nikki Sivils today!!! First, let me say that I am happy to be (still) on the NS DT - - I thought three months was too short to showcase the yummy NS products (I started blogging here last March). To do this for a full-term is really an opportunity that I am thankful for.

Today, I'm gonna showcase Dan the Record Man - - I have three layouts featuring two of the most important guys in my life. ;o)

Let me start with my little guy Phil - - took the picture while we were at the local music cd store. These papers are just sooo perfect, don't you think? ;o)

Got to test my stamping skills (stamped my The Record paper with music stamp as background)...
Placed my cluster of cut-outs here and some blings there (for that rockstar feel!!!). Used some cord brads and black burlap buttons too (love the instant texture these two bring to my layout!!!)...

Cut-out another record and adhered it with a pop-dot for added dimension...

Next up is my big guy. I was looking at some old pictures and I saw these - - dated September 1992. ;o) Another yay for perfect papers!!!!!

For the record, I'm soooo blessed to have him in my life...


2 Bs on my cluster - - blings and burlap button...


I was able to finish these 2 layouts way ahead of time so I got to create one more - - I thought it would be fun to make a face-off of sorts - - I find it amazing that these two pictures have 18 years between them and that my little guy is sooo much like my big guy!!!! I found the inspiration on Journaling Junkie's Challenge 82: Create a layout about the similarities of your kids and their Dad:

I got to use the record stamp included in Dan the Record Man's 4x4 Clear Stamp Collection to dress up my star cut-out.

I also placed some 3D elements here and there by adhering cut-outs with pop-dots (ooohh, did some handstitching too!!!).


Hope I inspired you to grab your Dan the Record Man stash and play!!!

Have fun creating,

janis

P.S. My big guy hasn't seen these layouts, I plan to show it to him on Sunday as one of my Father's Day gifts. ;o) Hope he'll love them as much as I do. ;o)

Happy Fathers' Day to your big guys too!!! ;o)
