My Dad….

I know I’m not the only “girl” in the world who feels like this about her dad….

Drafting-my-life-AO-CT

I had no idea when I pulled this photo up to scrap, where it would take me… I didn’t expect this, but I’m glad it happened.Journalling reads:
I remember as a child being very proud of my Dad, as most little girls are. From 1954
to 1992 he worked for Caroma, ending up as their Cheif Draftsman. He was involved
in lots of exciting things, including research and development, investigating new tooling
techniques and so on. However, he taught me so much more than how to draw a good
square. He taught me about myself, to always try my best, and that I could do anything
I put my mind to. And that is still my motto today. A lasting legacy indeed….

I used Ashley Olsons rather funky So Retro paper pack from SBB, fonts used were Mechanical Fun, Nora Casual, Thinking of you, Another Typewriter. Inked action from Atomic Cupcake. Created in Ps7.

I’m taking things nice and slowly at the moment, Dr’s orders I’m afraid…. but I am still here, and I’m still reading all YOUR blogs… so keep giving me lots of funny things to smile about, Ok??
