WoJ ~ POM June ~ To Dad

The project of the month at A Whiff of Joy for June is to make something for Dad.
My Dad died in 1987, so this was a bit hard to make... But after some bloghopping, I came across Anita's wine-tag, and she also had made a template.
So here is my project for June:
I have coloured Henry the celebrating mouse with Distress Ink refillers. The letters are from Making Memories and the papers are from Basic Grey and Jenni Bowlin. The text is also from WoJ.I have sewed around Henry and also on the tag. The edges are distressed with the colour Vintage Photo. For the scalloped circles I have used Spellbinder Nestabilities.
I looked through my old photos, and found some I wanted to share with you. Here is my Dad with my brother and me. I rememer that I loved to sit on his lap, even though I didn't have time to sit still for long:)
Here is an old photo I found of him. What a great moustache!
Here he is opening presents. It is probably his birthday, which was April 8th.
(Thank you Xtina for the beautiful frames.)
Here he is a bit younger, I just had to show you what outfit he used fixing around the old house we lived in. It was the seventies;) Here he is around 15 years old. On his way to work on the schoolship Christian Radich.
Thank you for visiting my blog!

Kjempefin tag, alltid vanskelig å lage gaver til far. Jeg mistet også min pappa i 1987, så kjenner ditt savn. Koselig med bilder.
Klem til deg!

Så lurt med den vinflaska. Kjempe kreativt som vanleg.Du er så flink med fargane.
Så er det noko med disse pappaene...mista min i 1996. Det er alltid litt spesiellt med bursdager og farsdager.
Ha ei fin arbeidsveke(veit at den blir travel.. )

Camilla, as always your creations is fabulous, I really love it. But even more, thank you so much for sharing your memories and pictures of your father. He looked very kind and I am so sorry you had to lose him so young. His 70's clothes are so fantastic, I remember my aunt wearing a vest a lot like that. Hugs friend and know that you are being thought of.
