In One Word Fantastic!

Good morning.
Hope you had a lovely weekend. 
The weather here was pants but the company was fabulous - little Ruby Mae had her first visit to Grandma's house and it was soooooo lovely to see her - she is like a little dolly :o)

I have recently rekindled my passion for scrapbooking - but in a home decor style and today I would like to share a project I made on Saturday for Aaron (and Kerry) for Father's Day :

My Squidgilicious Grandson - Oliver

Ingredients Used:
Design Papers: My Mind's Eye 'On the Bright Side - One'
Kaisercraft Rub-Ons
Chipboard Letters: Painted and Paper Pieced
Rosette: Tim Holtz Sizzix Die
Spellbinders: Grand Decorative Circles One
Buttons and adhesive pearls from stash
Edges inked with Faded Jeans Distress Ink
Deep Box Frame: Hobbycraft

Challenges I would like to enter:
613 Avenue Create - Anything Goes - Twist: Someone Special 'A Male'
Anything But a Card - Masculine or Dear Ol' Dad
Challenges 4 Everybody - Anything Goes
Creative Inspirations Paint - Red, White and Blue
Joanna Sheen - Father's Day/Male
Craft Lovin - Anything Goes
The Crafting Cafe - Here Come the Boys
Polka Doodles - Male Theme

I'm just waiting for an engineer to call to take a look and hopefully repair our broken dishwasher. 
I had to do the washing up by hand yesterday - after a big family roast dinner too :o(
You don't realize how much you miss a dishwasher until it's broken!!!

Thanks for popping by to see me today - I really appreciate your visit and look forward to any comments you may wish to leave.

Have a fabulous day.

Hiya Debs
Wow what a gorgeous box frame. I made two of these just recently and I love doing them, this one with your Son in is super, gorgeous circle behind the photo.
You said you buy the box frames from hobby house, I get mine from the Range, I would like to know what you pay. I pay £5 for 8x8, but they do have a 12x12 for £10.
