Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to all of you terrific fathers out there...especially mine that went to heaven 17 years ago! I still miss you daddy, every day!  I did a few tribute pages for my family and friends that I put on Facebook to honor them as they are for you to see and for them to make it in my book at the end of the year! LOL!
I created this QP for Father's Day freebie on Miriam's Scraps using her MK 20 kit.  The b/w photo is last photo of us as a family unit in 1957 prior to the divorce.  The colored one is of my dad and Kathy's 2 boys Jason and Jeff, his only grandchildren.
This is my brother-in-law Jim, Kathy's hubby with his grandson Jayson on his shoulders....LOL! The free QP is from Laurrie at CheyOkota Digital Scraps from her Honey Do Collection.  The one below is of his son
This QP I created using the free Down On The Farm kit from Auntie M Designs as my brother-in-law Weymond (Penny's hubby) who is a farmer in south Georgia and one of his crops is corn....LOL The smaller photos are his 3 children, Lance & Lamar (twins) and Amy,  and the 4 larger are his grandchildren, Hayden, Calvin, Annabeth and Eliza...(Chase on the way).
This is his son Lance (Margaret's hubby) with his two, Hayden and Calvin at the beach. He and Margaret are expecting a second son (Chase) in October. I used a free QP from Linda (aka Miss Boots) at Random Thoughts at Linda's Place.
This is Amy's hubby, Michael, with his 2 girls, Annabeth and a free QP from Pixel Scrapper.
And finally this is father of my friend, Jannette in a free QP from Miriam's Scraps.

Thanks to all the generous designers who offer their work to make scrapping so much easier for us and again, Happy Father's Day to all you fathers out their or that have gone on to heaven.  Y'all make lots and lots of memories to share cause none of us are promised tomorrow and today may be all we have.  Chat more with you later.  Hugs, Mat


  1. My goodness, you've really been busy scrapping. Your pages are beautiful. I'm so glad that the flooding did not come into your house, and that all your outside kitties made it through the rains okay. I worry so about the animals who live outside.

    We had rain all through the night last night, and all day today. It wasn't very heavy though, and the lawns and garden could use it.

    The summer weather has moved into our area. The temps are up, but at least the nights are still cool and that helps.

    I'm beginning to feel a lot better now, and that is definitely a big plus. I have so much to get caught up on.

    It's getting late now, so I think I'll head on to bed. You have a wonderful evening. Hugs, Edna B.

  2. I miss my dad also every day, and he passed away 25 years ago! But I was so lucky to have a fantastic father.

    So the whole family and some friends must be very greatful that you spent time making all those lovely layouts for the dads, grin!

    Okay, now enough rain, don;t you think? It never comes in nice portions, always in big quantity and then long time nothing. Not very well from mother Nature, hahaha.
    Have a great week ahead, sending hugs for every day,

  3. Olá, querida amiga Mat! Boa tarde!
