Special Project







This is what I have been working on today for my Dad's 80th birthday this weekend. I put all of the pages in a scrapbook album for him and will continue on with his life story but needed to have the first part mailed out today so it arrives in NJ by Saturday.

I love this!!!!! Isn't it neat to show their life from beginning to now and how things have changed from their life time to ours. Beautifully done! Which reminds me to showcase the one I did for my sister. Thanks for the reminder! He will be so proud for the labor of love you have put into it!

Oh my - you are going to have one happy dad! This is just great. We did one for my dad's 80th (he also lives in NJ) and I think it was his favorite gift and he pages through it all the time. What a thoughtful (and talented) daughter you are! ~chris
