Happy Father's Day!

I thought I'd continue with my husband's wish of making scrapbook pages to frame. What better day to do that than on Father's Day. Since the first framed scrapbook page I made for him was of him and the girls, I thought I should make one for him of him and his son. The other day, Christie sent me the poem and I just LOVED it and thought it was PERFECT for this page. (Thanks, Christie!) I printed it from the computer onto Wild Wasabi cardstock. I don't even think my husband's seen these pictures yet. . .I just took them on Friday. I hope he loves the page! Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Father's Day, honey! You are the best father a mother and children could hope for! We LOVE you! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Father Figure (Verve Visual); Paper- Wild Wasabi, Basic Black (SU), Nana's KIDS Stack (DCWV); Accessories- black embossing powder

Edited to add: The poem--
There are little eyes upon you,

And they're watching night and day.
There are little ears that quickly
Take in every word you say.
There are little hands all eager
To do anything you do;
And a little boy who's dreaming
Of the day he'll be like you.
You're the little fellow's idol

You're the wisest of the wise,
In his little mind about you
No suspicions ever rise;
He believes in you devoutly,
Holds that all you say and do,
He will say and do in your way
When he's all grown up like you.
There's a wide eyed little fellow

Who believes you're always right;
And his ears are always open,
And he watches day and night.
You are setting an example
Every day in all you do;
For the little boy who's waiting
To grow up to be like you.

Now will you hang this with the other page or will this one replace it? Or do you just display them on holders like on a shelf?
