One Year Ago...

On FaceBook last night, I wrote "One year ago today...love and miss you so much, dad..." and the loving words of support from my friends (even the ones that lurk! lol!) poured in. WOW. Thank you - I needed that. I have to say the power of FaceBook is amazing :0)

I posted A Tribute to My Dad last September and it was a nice reminder of what my dad was all about. Also in that post, I included a picture of him that I took the day I left for home - it was the only picture during my stay that he looked his best. Today I'd like to share an ATC I created using his picture from his school days (I think junior high or high school) in the late 1930s to early 40s...

Dad by Margie Higuchi
Supplies Patterned Paper: Donna Salazar; Dies, Punches (dad) and craft foils: Spellbinders™ Paper Arts; Embellishment: Advantus; Adhesive: ScraPerfect

We had a small family memorial service at home - it's handy to have a Buddhist priest as your hubby! LOL!! The rest of the family held the memorial service at the family temple in Japan so he was "covered" on both countries :0)

Never created an ATC with a picture in it. Have you? I like this idea and plan to use it more often!

Thanks for stopping by!
