I ran out of time before I could do everything I wanted with this kit. My dad has been on my mind a lot lately--partly because there's a big family wedding this weekend and we always miss him keenly at those events, partly because the wedding is the day before what would have been his birthday, and partly because it's been raining a lot lately, and he and I spent hours on the front porch when I was growing up, watching the rain fall...talking...and sharing silences, too.
My dad loved the autumn time of year and I have such fond memories of that. KimB's color palette she chose for this month's DSO Color Challenge brought that to mind. I wanted to honor him...I wanted this kit to be better...I wanted it to represent him. But, it is what it is today, and that will have to do. The photos I used in the background of some of the papers were taken either in England or the Smoky Mountains earlier this year. I associate special memories of him with both of those places, too. Please take care of this kit and accept it in the spirit in which it is given...a loving, IMISSYOU tribute to my dad. He's been gone 10 years, but sometimes it just seems like yesterday.
Blessings on your day,
