CELEBRATIONS OF THE HEART BLOG HOP

If you are here for Scrapbookaholic's Challenge #3 please click here


Celebrations of the Heart!!!

I decided to use this title because this hop is to celebrate a couple people that I love dearly and the 2nd anniversary of my blog.

My father and one of my best friends share the same birthday on April 12th and I wanted to make something for them both. All of the blogs on this hop have made something in honor of someone or something they love and hold dear.

My friend (Staci) and I have known each other since 7th grade and even though we don't see each other very often we love each other and have an uncondionation friendship! HAPPY BIRTHDAY STACI!!!



My father was born April 12, 1958 and he passed away when I was six years old. At that time I understood to a point but not completely and it was a very emotional time for my family. I wish I could say that I remember my father but in truth I really don't but I love to hear about the wonderful man that he was! I have heard stories from perfect strangers that knew my father and to hear the wonderful things they say makes me admire him even more. I am not an emotional person and I think of myself as a strong woman who has been able to successfully deal with many things in my life but the loss of my father is still something that I deal with every single day. I sometimes find myself getting emotional over a song or a thought or for no reason at all.

With all that being said here are my projects.. and I still have a couple more to post but time ran away from me...

I made this card for my brother using Scrappy moms stamps and Pink by design twine and DCWV paper

I made this one for me... I used Emma's stamps and Market Street background stamp with Pink by design twine and DCWV paper


This is the card I made for Staci, I used Kich n Blues digi and bo bunny flowers and some more DCWV paper. The stamps are from Scrappy Moms and I used Sakura gel pens for the coloring

Emma at My Creative time (Winner choice)

  5. Wow...these cards are awesome!
    I love the way the cards for your Dad have a masculine touch.
    That is something that is hard for me, so you've given me some great ideas!

  7. The story about your dad pulls my heart strings. Mine passed away almost 8 years ago and every single day he is thought of. Songs, a gentle breeze, windchimes, and things like the sound of a knife being sharpened remind me of him. He was always sharpening our knifes in the kitchen. :) Thank you for sharing your lovely post and cards. Lovely! Thank you for the chance to win!

  12. I know exactly how you feel. I lost my father when I was 6 months old. I wish I got the chance to know him, but my father's family keeps his memory alive through their stories and pictures. Im saddened that I never got the chance to meet him. Beautiful cards, and I love the coloring on your digi's! This has been a great Hop!

  41. Hi, Alina! Your cards are wonderful and your store about your father is very touching. I was so fortunate to have had my dad until 8 years ago so it's hard for me to imagine how you must feel, not having known your dad. It's nice that you can honor him in this way.

  46. Your dad was a year younger than me...so sad. I lost my mom when I was 16 years old and even though I have been scrapping for 7 years, I did my first layout of her a month ago and I cried the whole time I made it! I am now the age she was when she died....

    Anyway, thank you for having this blog hop, I have become a follower and I wish you all the best!

  47. Your cards are very nice. As i read your story I felt the tears flowing. April is a very sad month for me . My mother passed at a very young age 2 weeks after her birthday also in April. My best friends birthday whom I've known my entire life birthday is on that day. It's been a long time but the pain will always come back every now and then. Keep remembering him.

  111. I am so sorry for the loss of your Dad when you and he were both so young. I cannot imagine how difficult that must have been. I am truly blessed to still have my Dad, who turns 83 in May. He and my Mom (turning 81 in June) celebrate 60 years of marriage in September! Both of your cards are lovely, though I like the tribute one the best.

    I am off to hop...

  125. Your cards are amazing. My best friend since we were 5 lost her dad at 5 years old. I lost mine at 32 so I know how it is and you do deal with it everyday. God Bless you.
