This Face, These Hands

Standard

It’s Father’s Day in Australia on Sunday.  My darling Dad passed away 8 years ago but I wanted to honour him here today.  This is a layout from the vault, made just a few days after his death.  Scrapbooking really is my therapy and making pages of this gorgeous man helped me get through those first hard weeks without him.

My darling dad

I don’t have anything clever to teach you in terms of stamps, embellishments or whizz bang tools. My offering here is what I believe to be the foundation of any scrapbook page – the story behind the image.

This is the face

Keep the tissues handy as you work – you’ll need them.  See the smudge on the photo above?  I’d printed it at home and then cried on it!!!  Ah well, keeps it real 🙂

Happy Father’s Day to all the wonderful dads making their little girls (and big girls) feel loved,
