My Lovely Dad~~

Hi All~

As this coming weekend (May 8th) is the anniversary of my dad's death, I thought I would mark it by making a Scrapbook page with his beautiful face on it...
I have lots of photo's of my dad, and over the past 6 years I have been slowly Scrapbooking all my lovely memories of him.
As with anyones death, at first it is very hard to look at photo's let alone Scrapbook them, but I found over time, I wanted to do it.
He always took a good photo, this one is him pulling his silly smile face..
It was New Years Eve 1997, and he had had a bit to drink by the time this was taken. I love it, so funny!

I have used a 12x12 Bo Bunny paper, and some MME to co-ordinate. I have a huge MS border punch, perfect for Scrapbooking, and I have used little eyeletts in my tabs and tag. I have lots of Setiments, so chose the lovely "Unique", and the "We do not remember days, we remember moments"...

I have entered it into the following challenge, as the sketch was a perfect match to my page..
