Huffin' and puffin' to FWF....

Another FWF down to the wire.... Unity Friends with Flair blog hop, that is...



I have to make this short because I literally have minutes to post this. I wanted to make something special for my husband for Father's Day so I used a tutorial from Splitcoast for an accordian card. (You can find it HERE.) We have two boys, so I thought that the four inside pages could be good for a baby picture of each and a current picture of each. It was fun to make but I was a little like that woman in the car rental commercial running down the airport corridors to get to her rental car company before it closed. So, I'm running. The front cover used the heart and sentiment from the May '11 KOTM. (It was serendipity that the definition in the top right corner of my front cover says "father." *smile*) The cool papers come from the Designer Blue Jeans paper stack by DCWV. And the key charm is Stampin Up.

Thanks for looking.. Wishing all a Happy Father's Day weekend!
