My Daddy Scrapbook Page

All baby books have a page dedicated to ~ My Daddy. This page records facts about baby's daddy. It becomes a snapshot in time of what baby's daddy was like when baby was born.

Along with the statistics, such as, where he went to school, you will want to include details that allow daddy's personality to come across the page.

My Daddy Scrapbook Layout Ideas

  • Compare baby photos of daddy and baby. Use a picture of daddy when he was a baby. Try to get a picture of baby from around the same age as daddy was in his picture.

    If baby is still little, you can stage a photo shoot to try and reproduce the background and to position baby the way daddy was in his photo.

    Use those two photos as the main pictures for the page. You may also want to include a current picture of daddy. The current picture should be smaller and placed off to the side. This will help keep the main focus on the two baby pictures.

    (For digital scrappers - use the current picture of daddy to create background paper for your layout.)

    Journal about the resemblances between father and child.

  • Layout that Describes Daddy - when you think of daddy, what comes to mind? Does he love sports? Is he a mister fix-it? Use what he loves to create a theme for your scrapbook page. This will help his personality shine through.

  • Daddy & Baby Photo Shoot - take some unique poses of daddy and baby. Use the pictures from this photo shoot to make your scrapbook page. Make sure you add journaling to the page.

Poems About My Daddy

What Makes a Dad
~author unknown

God took the strength of a mountain,
The majesty of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,

The generous soul of nature,
The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the ages,
The power of the eagle's flight,

The joy of a morning in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family need,

Then God combined these qualities,
When there was nothing more to add,
He knew His masterpiece was complete,
And so, He called it ... Dad

A Father Means
~author unknown

A Father means so many things...
A understanding heart,
A source of strength and of support
Right from the very start.
A constant readiness to help
In a kind and thoughtful way.
With encouragement and forgiveness
No matter what comes your way.
A special generosity and always affection, too
A Father means so many things
When he's a man like you...

Walk a Little Slower Daddy
~author unknown

"Walk a Little slower, Daddy." said a little child so small.
I'm following in your footsteps and I don't want to fall.

Sometimes your steps are very fast, sometimes they're hard to see;
So walk a little slower Daddy, for you are leading me.

Someday when I'm all grown up, You're what I want to be.
Then I will have a little child who'll want to follow me.

And I would want to lead just right, and know that I was true;
So, walk a little slower, Daddy, for I must follow you!!
