My Daddy, My Hero

Well, here goes... this layout, done for Scrap the Boys this month, has been 3 years in the making. I have wanted to scrap this photo so many times, but I just wasn't ready. When I saw the theme this month of My Daddy, My Hero, I knew it was time. I apologize to those who may find it morbid or depressing, but it has been sitting in me for the past 3 years & it was time to get it out. I have been accused of wanting sympathy when I share things about my Dad & his passing, but for anyone who knows me, that is simply not the case. I wear my heart on my sleeve at times & am not afraid to be exactly who I am. My Dad was my hero (& in some cases, still is) & I am not afraid to admit, the tears rolled freely as I attempted to write these words. RIP Dad, I will love you forever X
