Love you yesterday....

Father's Day is fast approaching and at Papercraft Star the challenge this week is to make a card or project for Dad




I don't have anyone to make a card for ... I lost my Dad a long time ago and yet my memories of him are as strong as ever ... seems like only yesterday ... not 39 years
So I made a little tag book ... just for me really but to celebrate my Dad



I used scraps from my supplies ... so lots of different things here .. alpha stickers from Pixie Dust Paperie ... Tim Holtz tape ... prima flower


That wee baby is me ... taken shortly after I was born ... 
The wood effect papers are from paperMania and I distressed the edges


I cut some hearts ... one from a scrap of cardboard and one from a little metal garden tag ... I first used these Here
And you can tell I am not a snob when it comes to using stickers ... I just love them for albums and books with scraps of lace and trims 


There are even some stickers from Melissa Frances ... love mixing up my supplies


Our Star designer this week is our Senior Designer Anitra
and as always our lovely sponsor is The House Across The Bay

I hope you will take a minute to check out the projects from the rest of the DT here at Papercraft Star ... and join us in celebrating Fathers Day!

Thanks so much for your visit 
Keep safe

~ Ros ~
