Happy Birthday Dad!

Good morning everyone! Just a quick post in remembrance of my dad who would have been 83 today. It's hard to believe he's been gone almost 4 years now. They say the heart heals in time, but some days I'm not so sure. Anyway, I wanted to share a layout I made of him and my mom. I was going through some old pictures of them and just had to create something. This picture was taken in 1969 when my dad was president of the Canoga Park Rotary Club. I remember they had a lot of fun with many friends back then and always going out.
I used all kinds of stuff from my stash on this, 3 Birds paper and doily border sticker, Doily stamp, punches, and ink from Stampin' Up, Recollection flowers and cardstock, a doily from M's, Perfect Pearls Mist, Stickles, White Gelly Roll pen, MS butterfly stamps....oh and a stick pin from Making Memories. Phew! What a list!! :) Any way, I hope you like it and I want to thank you for stopping by. Happy Birthday Daddy!! I love you!!
