Does this really make sense?
So I finally took the plunge and had the guts to scrap my very favorite photo of dad and myself. The photo that I'd keep going to scrap and would put away because it just made me cry.
This moment was filled with such powerful emotion that I will never ever EVER forget it.
I even broke down and used some of my favorite papers from Rob and Bob Studio that I've been hoarding for just the right project for, oh gosh, maybe 7 or 8 years. Yeah. I'm a hoarder. (Psssh...those boys blog about as much as I did before resurrecting the blog). ;)
I also did a layout about dads "smells". The morning following dads passing I was using the upstairs bathroom—where dad had all of his bottles of "smell good" in the medicine cabinet. I just stood there and stared and smelled and let the scent of dad flow over me. I'm so thankful for our sense of smell as it truly triggers memories, as nothing else can adequately do.
I'm not entirely sure if I'm happy with how the title lays out and I've moved it a dozen times. Maybe I'll keep tinkering with it or maybe it's just time to call it good. Oh and yeah. I need to reorder the prints. The Sidewalk Sprinklers got a little out of control. ;)

Well, that's it for now. I think it's time to head to my work space and get playing with a little more paper!
