Father’s Day Gift Idea: The “Father and Child” Blurb Book

So, this is actually a Christmas gift I created for my husband, but as I was making it, I was bummed because I should have saved the idea for father’s day! I hope this gives you some inspiration for your Father’s Day gift.

I have created books with Blurb before, and I love the quality of their books. In this book, I selected and layout photos that has Connor and daddy’s photos in it. I wanted to promote and showcase the father and son relationship through the series. The photos display the mundane things in life, such as going to the doctor, or cooking, trips to the park, to our big trip to Iceland.

The photos have various sizes and framing, I selected a fun and vibrant color palette to use for the voids on the pages.
