Petaloo Blog Hop - Day 2!

Greetings and happy Tuesday to you!
Exciting news and super fun week for us here on the blog...

We are so thrilled to be partnering all this week with our friends at Petaloo!

Hello and welcome!  Susie hosting the blog today.

We are offering up Father's Day themed projects this week featuring some great products from Petaloo and Quick Quotes of course!

My husband is a great "Daddy" for our three children!  Learning to ride a bike is an important milestone in any child's life so of course he was right there to help our baby girl develop this skill.  It took a lot of patience.  He actually worked with her on multiple occasions over the course of about a year before she developed the confidence to ride on her own.

The small pictures on the right are from the 1st attempt on the school playground.  The large photo on the left is the day she finally road up and down the road all by herself.  Talk about a proud Daddy moment!

The beautiful plaid background paper is from the Serendipity Collection and I inked all around the edge with Tahiti PowderPuff Chalking Ink.  I placed a doily slightly off center and layered on a fancy die cut showing the reverse side of the plaid paper!  Both sides were so beautiful! Creating this beautiful floral spray on the left of the layout was so easy with Petaloo products!

I combined 2 different colors from the Burlap Blossoms line:  Teal and Pistachio.  The leaves and the pearlized berries are from the Botanica Collection. A pearl flourish and wood accent finish the embellishment cluster. Petaloo also has a nice collection of Fancy Trims and I layered 2 of them - some teal ric rac and a piece of beige lace - on top of a torn strip from Baggage Claim.  Those cute bikes were perfect for this layout!  I added a second torn strip and then inked the edges with Rusty Nail PowderPuff Chalking Ink.

"Daddy's Little Girl" came from a Quick Quotes Vellum I had in my stash!
The Polaroid frame from the Baggage Claim Chipboard Die Cuts was the inspiration for all of the Polaroid's on the layout.  The quote on the piece talks about adventure. My daughter thought I meant learning to ride the bike. I had to explain that I was actually referencing being a parent, having a family - an adventure I hope she one day enjoys herself!

Here's a closer look at the bit of washi and wood veneer bicycle at the top.

You can see that the die cut was embossed and distressed before I inked it with Rusty Nail PowderPuff Chalking Ink.  I also inked the doily a bit to add a little "character".
