you're MY HERO!!

Happy Hip Hop Thursday!!
with Memorial Day approaching.. what better theme for today's HIP HOP
than to focus on a HERO in our lives...

I could write PAGES about my HERO...
but I will try to keep it short and sweet..
this man is beyond amazing.. has been everywhere.. done everything...
experienced things that most people only dream about...
has been educated in life by living it to the fullest...
he has the kindest heart and is one of my favorite people EVER.
an inspiration to everyone who meets him...
and I am lucky enough to have him as MY DAD!

my hero... my dad
12X12 scrapbook layout
featuring worn stars background, details & dates,
star & love postmark from Jan KOM,
sentiment from this is the time mini, just my type alpha
my dad and i last year on father's day.. he is the BEST!
my dad left home at age 15 and joined the army
{yes he lied about his age to get in.. }
He has many AMAZING stories from his days of being a paratrooper
and living all over the world while he served.


i love the imperfect and worn look of distressing.
i just sliced off the edge of the paper, distressed,
and adhered the red cardstock underneath
photo of me & my dad from 1978
when i was the same age that my youngest daughter is now.. almost 3..
so adorable!
