This is my lo for the May Round Robin Challenge And the May Distress Challenge. It is a scraplift of SonjaC's "Sweet" lo, which can be found here http://www.scrapbook.com/galleries/329639/view/3622071/-1.html
This is a pic of my dad as I always think of him. When I was a child, this is pretty much how my dad looked most of the time. I recall the red hat, he always had a beard (he no longer does LOL), his hands were usually stained black from working on tractors.
I've seen many discussions about why do people put "random" embellishments on their pages, and I've thought about how sometimes things have meaning, but others wouldn't know that, so here's my reasons for some of my embellishments on this page. The gears on here are because my dad was always working on farm equipment, the John Deere stickers are because he was a JD guy..very little equipment on our farm from another company, the stars are because his favorite football team is the Dallas Cowboys and that's what was on our tv on Sunday afternoons..one of the few reasons my dad would stop working to watch tv, the clocks are because my dad always carried a pocket watch, because a wrist watch could have gotten caught in equipment, the bird is on here, because my dad was always outside working and enjoying nature, the reds and blues are because my dad is a Pepsi guy and the red and blue make me think of Pepsi.
