Still one of my favorites.......


Over at.................

Bizzy Becs - Creatalicious Challenges

the first challenge is to make something for your dad - well since my Uncle passed in April (he raised me from the time I was 5) I decided to post this , your project needs to incorporate brown and metal. This is still a very special layout for me - so I am using it as the challenge piece. I miss him everyday! I am still thankful to have my birth Dad too - so as soon as my computer is back up and running I will post something special for him too! But until then my layout is a tribute to my Uncle.

I have used a light brown dp and then metal buttons and of course some of Leah's beautiful blooms which you can find at her shop over at Paper Blooms ETSY Store.
