I love this layout because it is of my dad. Dad was stationed in Okinawa at the time. It was there he met a man that became his best friend and eventually my uncle.
The 5 x7 photo is dad just goofing around. You can see a very young Chuck in the lower photo. All the old photos of dad just bring him back to me and how he was when I was little. Dad was very sick towards the end of his life. I will always believe that my dad was the best father in all the world. I tell my grandchildren about him so they will have my memories of Dad.
Predominate pattern paper is from KaiserCraft. The paper with the ruler and numbers is from My Mind's Eye newest release. To get my circle I used my Fiskars Circle Cutter...don't leave home without it! I made my "ticket" look with Fiskars Ticket It squeeze punch. The blue chipboard pieces are from Technique Tuesday. I just added Broken China Distress Stain and a stamp. The little faux stitching is from a much older collection by Cloud9.
Thanks for letting me share my Pop with you.
Monday and Tuesday were the first two days of Little Honey's birthday week. Monday I gave her a princess birthday hat and wand for the week. The wand is from Making Memories line Bravissimo. I collect hats and other pieces of "dress up" items so that LH and I can play dress up. There are photos of LH while we were playing dress up.
Tuesday I gave LH her own gardening set and a starter kit to grow sunflower seeds. We will be working on that one today.
