Forever Missed- DT Project

Its yet another Monday and I am so excited to share this layout with you that I created as my DT project for Your Memories Here using the papers from the Prima Grab Bag and one of the stamps from the Tattered Angels Architectural Trims.. Those stamps are amazing and I am finding more and more uses for them..  

so, here is my project for today's reveal:
This layout will have a photo of my dad who passed away last February.. I just don't have the strength yet to rummage through his old photos.. all in due time  :)
I wanted to play around with the papers for this layout.. so, I cut some and rolled them into little rolls, which I glued down to the bottom right hand corner using Helmars quick drying adhesive, adding some paper swirls and then ribbon..

I wanted to stick with the black and white, but then decided to add the little blue flowers because my dad had light blue eyes.. I thought it added a nice touch of accent color to the layout..
I once again added Crackle Accents to the face of the clock, but you can't see the crackle cause the base of the clock is black..LOL  another lesson learned..LOL

I found a Prima Lace Rosette in my stash and then hand journaled the date he passed away on the top..  I love how versatile these papers are.. You can use them for any occasion!!

and the stamping.. Oh how I love these stamps.. I used the Brick work stamp and Ranger Embossing ink, with White Embossing powder.. Then heat set it.. I love it!! looks pretty cool.. I thought about rubbing some Black ink on it, but then at the last minute decided to just leave it as is.. 

and I once again apologize for the bad photos.. 
There really isn't any descent light in Finland this time of year and so, there's nothing I can do.. so sorry!!

I really love how this layout turned out..Trying to keep it semi simple by just using the papers and some embossed stamping.. I know in my heart my dad would of loved this.. When he stayed with us a few years ago, he used to like watching me create.. Father and daughter moment..LOL
I want to thank you lovely ladies for stopping by today and checking out my Monday project..
I certainly hope I have inspired you to get out your papers and stamps and get crafting..  :)
I hope everyone has a wonderfully crafty week..


  1. I love the rolled paper .. have another friend who does that and it is soooo effective! Great design element. And the embossing with the Prim brick wall stamp ..wtg, gf! I have that stamp on order and cannot wait to get it! Fabulous page .. just still so sad for you .. daddy's are special!

  2. I'm glad you shared something so personal...
