GDT at The Sisterhood of Crafters!

Can I tell you how excited I am to be one of the guest design team members at The Sisterhood of Crafters this month?! It's an added bonus that the other GDT is Priyanka, someone I actually "know" online!

The first challenge for this month is to create a Father's Day project. You can make a card, LO, gift, whatever as long as it fits the theme. My project happens to be the one I mentioned yesterday that didn't want to stay together. I'm really happy I had to work the day I made it because I probably would have died of embarrassment if it fell apart after I gave it away. (And why would I give away a Father's Day card so early, you ask. Well, the son is going to visit his great grandma for a few weeks and will, unfortunately, miss his daddy's first Father's Day...)  All the pieces seem to be stuck for good now...

This is a pretty simple project - it's an altered composition notebook. I wanted to keep it plain since it's from a man to his son, and the son happens to be less than a year old. I hope the dad likes it. He says he wants to be a writer; I figured, who better to write to than his progeny. (That one's for you, Tracy!) They're a Sr./Jr., hence the squared initials. The rest says, "Notes from Father to Son: volume one." If he ever wants/needs another, it'll be volume two and so on...

The paper covering the notebook is from CTMH's Twitterpatted set, and the ribbon is SU! The letters are by Thickers and are mounted on paper cut with Nestabilities Labels 10. See, easy? 

You can enter your Father's Day project at The Sisterhood of Crafters until June 22. See you there!
