Happy Father's Day Challenge

Welcome to another challenge for Exploring Cricut.  Today's challenge is to create a layout, card, or other paper craft in honor of our father for Father's Day.

This time last year we were making plans to celebrate Father's Day with Dad as soon as he was feeling better.  We had no clue that he would be dead in less than a month.  I thought about not participating in this challenge, but I figured this was the best time to do a project to honor Dad!

For my project I used the cartridge Florals Embellished to cut the birds.  They were cut at 3".

I used parts of the song "Wind Beneath My Wings" by Bette Midler.

 I love this song and it says how I feel about my dad perfectly.  He did everything for my brother and I.  I don't know if I ever told him how thankful I was that he was my dad, but I think he knew.
