The prompt for Lain Ehmann's Layout a Day challenge for Day 8 was: I miss....
Having lost my dad in January 2011, this was a no-brainer for me. There are so many things I miss about him, these are just a few...
your twinkling eyes
sitting on your lap
holding your hand
playing cards with you
your double chin when you laugh
the way you purse your lips when you're mad
listening to you sing the Lord's Prayer, Amazing Grace, and other hymns
watching It's a Wonderful Life together every Christmas
your duck noises when trying to make a baby laugh
your advice, even though often unsolicited..about sports, stocks, parenting
being able to call you for anything...a recipe, a stain removal tip, to fix something
the sound of your voice
Some observations about the process and the products used:
- Stampin' Up paper, I cut the design of the paper on the right side so that I could slide the photo underneath it.
- Used Picasa to journal directly onto the photo
- Listened to my Alan Jackson Precious Memories CD with Southern Baptist hymns, reminds me of my dad singing at a revival.
