Timeless

I created this simple layout of my Dad using Graphic 45 paper.  He really loved baseball (well, all sports) when he was alive, and I am glad that I have a picture of his baseball stance.  When I see pictures of my sister's kids playing baseball, I notice their baseball stance first of all!  Isn't that funny - Dad taught me well how to play baseball!


This paper is jsut gorgeous, and I want to make sure that I only used one pictures so that I could keep the beauty of the watches.  I've double matted the photo.  The large watch was on the paper under the picture, so I cut that out and popped it up.  I didn't feel like this layout needed a lot of "stuff."  To me and my sisters, the picture speaks volumes.

Aw, such a loving tribute to your Daddy! I love the photo and it speaks volumes to me, as well, there is no love quite like that of daughter for her Daddy! The watches are amazing! I love the way you double matted the photo too!
This is "timeless" in itself.
Blessings,
Kim xXx

Yes, he taught you so well that I seem to remember a certain sister of mine that holds the record for homeruns in Toivola! I was in awe of this layout-it's meaning to me is beyond words.
