My Superhero

  This is going to be a little long and a bit more personal than usual so feel free to skip through this part. I am a member of an awesome yahoo group Scrappin-N-Chattin. There are monthly challenges that help keep me scrapping and lots of love and encouragement too! One of the challenges this month is a photo inspiration that says Super Dad. Jeff is a Super Dad in my eyes. When he came out of his comma 7 1/2 years ago we had no idea what his life would look like. We have been so truly blessed that it has been a wonderful life  full of challenges but oh so many blessings. He never complains despite many issues and has not even missed a single day of work! He continues to help his children and love on his grandchildren even when he is just totally exhausted. He sacrifices his time energy and resources to help not only his family but others. He is sad that it has diminished his golf game though..... Saturday night we were driving home from a baby shower for our youngest daughter (I know super exciting!) and we were discussing some of the big events that have happened since he was sick and I felt that it should be documented. We are so absolutely amazed at how much he has experienced since that time.
   Now to the silly picture. I had made month ties for Adrienne when Zade was born. He happened to be 2 months old on Jeff's 60th birthday. When Adrienne posted the picture of Zade on facebook Ben said you should make a big one for Jeff..... well say no more I did just that. And when Jeff got home Adrienne and crew were here so I got Ben to take a couple of pictures of the 2 together with their ties on. Ben posted one of the pictures on facebook and the next morning my cousin informed me that the picture had been feature on acid hub.... how funny is that!
 Well here is the sketch I followed from Boys Rule
I am also going to enter this at Scrap N Play The third challenge is a tic tac toe challenge 
I used fiber-twine, floral patterned paper and a punch-stars.
I am going to either it also for the Creative Cutting Challenge the current challenge is anything goes.. Woohoo right up my alley. 
For this layout I created the background and cut it also the tie is a diecut and so is the "family" in the title....have I mentioned that I LOVE MTC!
And finally here is my layout.
Thank you so much for taking a moment to share in my life. I am honored to share my many blssings with you.
