Patterned Paper Challenge # 16 - Like father like son



I just love how this LO turned out. The challenge was to create a striped background of several patterned papers. I had great difficulty combining papers this week. My first try is now staring at me from the garbage bin beneath my scraptable.... This is my 2nd try and I love it!

On the picture you see my husband and his father (who is nearly 80 years old!!!).
I printed out some characteristics that they share and glued them vertically to the bottom of the page as opposite to the horizontally placed "strips".
I guess I am not supposed to tell you this but my husband almost had tears in his eyes when I showed him this LO...hihi...
