Dawn Griffith Father's Day

This week's projects were created by our Guest Blogger, Dawn Griffith, from Dawn's Stampin Thoughts. Please click on the pictures for a closer view.

I totally had my Dad in mind when making this set of Father's Day goodies. My dad always loved fishing and would spend his summers out at the lake doing what he loved.....catching his favorite fish, Bass and Pike.

I knew I wanted to make a lure gift holder and a peek-a-boo worm holder (not real worms of course, YUCK) . With fishing on the brain I wanted to some how incorporate the sentiment Wishing you a Happy Fathers Day in a way that would reflect my Dads passion. TaDah... Fishing you a Happy Fathers Day is what I came up with as my sentiment. I have never found any stamp with this sentiment so I made my own and it was soooooo easy. With the Large Monogram Stamper and Small Letters I can make all kinds of sentiments to suit my themed projects. How perfect is that?

The JustRite Momogram Stamper allows me make what I want to use and not be limited to the greetings out there in the stampin world. You've got to love the flexiablty this company has given to all of us stampers that have to have the PERFECT saying for the PERFECT project.

Even though my Dad has passed I know he would have loved everything I made in this project. Not only because it was centered around his passion of fishing but that I made them all personalized too.

Thanks for stopping by and happy monogramming!
