Such a beautiful color scheme for this week's color challenge on the DD blog... perfect for this nice photo of my dad I snapped a few weeks ago. Nice to see him smiling, since he's had a very rough time since my mom passed away...
I've always loved the composition on this template from Kayleigh and Studio DD and I've been waiting for the right photo to prompt me to use it... and here it is! (I don't know what exactly the "right photo" is, but I knew last night I was going to use it on this layout! *wink*) Just did a bit of recoloring, added an alpha, my journaling and some paper... easy-peasy! Thank you, Kayleigh!


JOURNALING
Dad, you are a most amazing man... you were (and still are!) a fantastic father. You are strong and steady and have a fierce love for your family. It was something you and Mom shared... and since she’s no longer here, your love and focus on your family (especially, your grandchildren...) hasn’t waived one iota. In fact, that love has carried you through these difficult months without Mom. It’s provided you with courage and renewed commitment to deepen the bond with your children and your grandchildren more than ever... I love you, Dad... *heart* DeDe
