My Daddy

Over the last few days, amongst the busyness of all the other crafty goodies I have been making, I made room to create some projects about my daddy. I love my Daddy so much, and yes, I still call him Daddy!!!
With Father's Day fast approaching, I wanted to pay tribute to him in some way. I will not get to see him on Father's Day, because we live too far apart, but I hope he will enjoy the two layouts I have made in honor of him.

 My first layout is from my Daddy's retirement party. Love this picture with his badge...oh by the way, he was a police officer if you are wondering. Can you imagine what my teen years were like?????  Anyway, I used the fab new line by Cosmo Cricket. The design is based on a sketch from Creative Scrappers and my title and sub-titles are non other than SRM Stickers!!!!!

This next layout is made completely from one of my kits from The ScrapRoom!!!! I had this idea to create my background out of these fun journal tags. I just love the whole vintage feel of this entire line. Fun, Fun, Fun!!!!!! This is a picture of my brother and Daddy while they were here in town with me. Unfortunately, Daddy had to have a valve replacement surgery the following morning. Oh, now worries, he is fine now and recooperating. He is a tough man, my daddy, so it will take more than that to get him down.

Well, I hope you have enjoyed my pages in tribute to my Daddy. Please don't forget those wonderful men in your lives and find a special way to honor them!!!!!

Until next time.....Hugs xoxoxx
