In Memory Of My Dad
Today marks the 4th anniversary of the death of my Wonderful Dad. His name was Eddie and he was my best friend.
He battled with Cancer but never complained. He is a huge miss in my life everyday.
I wanted to make something I could carry around with me in my handbag that linked me to him.
In the past I have made Scrapbook pages to mark special days i.e. Fathers day etc, but due to the size its not practical to carry them with my as they would only get damaged.
While Blog hopping i found this on Roni's blog.
I knew straight away that it was perfect for what i needed.
I gathered all of the bits and pieces together and promised myself it would be made in time for today.
I achieved what I set out to do. I love my little Domino Accordian book and its something I can carry around with me, even in my pocket if I want to.
I would like to say Thank You to my cousin Tom who very kindly drilled the holes for me ( I couldnt be let loose with a drill !)
I have pictures of a watering can, as he loved his garden, a car, as he drove all of his life, a gold embossed clock to remind me that time goes too quickly, a small photo of my dad , his name, a stamp, as we used to have a post office, and some quotes.
I will make more of these in the future they are lovely to make, Thank you to Roni for the inspiration.
Thank you for reading my post xx
