From the time I can remember seeing his face until the last time I saw him, my dad has always been my hero. Father's Day is a day of celebration for me of the greatest father. Although I miss my dad more as each Father's Day passes, I celebrate his life as my dad and my hero.
This layout was created for the Graphic 45's June challenge on Facebook. Anytime you talk about doing a guy style layout my dad first comes to mind. He was a very handsome man and a shutterbug to boot. Not only did he serve this country (USA) bravely, but he was the "coolest" dad on the "block." I remember once at a basketball game ... I was sitting in the bleachers. Dad walked through the gym door and one the students behind me said, "Now he's good looking!" I laughed so hard. Dad did too years later when I told him.

Maybe I'm just slow, but I finally figured out how not to hand cut those half round pieces of a "postage stamp." I see these printed on wonderful paper but I want to cut them out for embellishments. It is hard to cut those little "swoops" out perfectly. I decided to solve the problem. I closely cut around the postage stamp image, use my handy dandy Fiskars small hole punch, line it up, and punch! It was fun and so, so, so easy.
