Rodeo... a layout about/for my Dad





My Dad is starring in this layout.  The photos are really old, black and white, and undated so I don't know when or where there were taken.  My Dad is currently in a care home and has Dementia, so I'm going to have these pages scanned and printed onto 12x12 photo paper and then frame them for him.  I'll keep the original layout as he has a tendency to pull stuff apart to see how things are put together, so photos will be better for him.

Supplies used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted):
Stamps:  Genuine Country, Out West
Papers:  Sarsaparilla B&Ts; Colonial White, Black, Desert Sand CS
Stickease:  Sarsaparilla
Inks:  Desert Sand, Black journal pen
Ribbon:  Black grosgrain
Punches/tools:  1 1/4" circle punch (EK Success); Cricut Base Camp cartridge (Provo Craft)

***This is my 4th post today, so be sure to scroll down to check it all out.  ;)

This is a great layout. I hope that your dad will be able to appreciate it. The paper works so well for the photos.

What an amazing LO! I have some great old pics of my dad...and this has inspired me.
I am so sorry about your dad..dementia is a terrible thing to have to deal with. But what an awesome way to preserve memories of him in his younger days.

Vicki, that is a beautiful layout, as all your work is. Sorry about your Dad, but what a wonderful thing to do for him.

Those pictures are like some I have of our son-in-law. just mine are a little newer. He does team roping.

Are you on Facebook? Maybe I needn't ask, as you probably wouldn't get as much done if you were. I find I spend too much time on there.

I have been a CTMH consultant now for just over 4 years and I love it. I don't do a whole lot anymore because of a full-time job, but there's no way I want to give up CTMH. Your work is so inspiring for me. Keep it up!
