Tribute to Papa

In honor of Father's in this month, I finally had a courage to write this journaling for Papa. He was such a good father to all of us. We had a lot of misunderstandings and we fought a lot, argued on almost everything but he was always at my side and at my back in everything that I do. He was still here, I'm sure he would be proud of me for what I have become as a scrapper. I may never be the accountant/lawyer he dreamed about me but he was always proud how I become as an artist from culinary to cake artist and now as a scrapbook artist.

Papa, this one's for you!

Materials: Basic Grey archaic (dirty), Making memories noteworthy pp’s, jenni Bowlin tangerine floral, Basic Grey perhaps diecut letters, prima flowers, misc twine, cord and bling, memory markers pen.

Journaling: you are always there for me, fought for me, stood by my side, knows my misery even before I speak.

You are my worst critic, bringing out the best in me, pushed me to the limits, to reach my full potential.
You are my stage father, from kindergarten til even after college, always around in every culminating activity, competitions and challenges, tagging along your camera to document every milestone – failure or triumphant.
Even when you were already in pain, you still showed me your strength, and taught me to be strong and showed how wonderful life is.

All that Iam, all that I have were all because of YOU.
