It's Father's Day weekend

and as i am thinking of my father i will share a little atc i made about him
it's not a new one but its daddy-related and thats good enough this weekend for me
i gessoed a playing card and added some color (that pale aqua color) and printed out the photo on a transparency then attached it to the card.
isn't it just the sweetest picture? it was among the pile of photos my mom had and let me borrow to scan. There were a number of photos of my father as a little boy - they were all photos that had been my grandmother's. (that's a story for another day - when i looked thru a pile of her photos and found such sweet things - she saved things like my fathers lunchbox, a report card or two, a postcard from my parents on their honeymoon, a letter my brother wrote to her as a little boy - just the sweetest and most telling things)
Anyway this one is for my daddy. next up is the father of my children.

Now, it's my turn to be weepy. I have always loved this picture. It just speaks volumes. Very cool the way you made the ATC. It gives a perfect beachy look.

Oh Tracy, this is perfect in its simplicity. I love to see pics of my parents as children, so often I just think of them as Mom and Dad and forget about the people they were before they had 6 rug-rats to chase around. This looks beachy and fresh and absolutely wonderful- your daddy was a cutie pie as little guy!
