ABC Friday- A Tribute to My Papaw

My Papaw passed away, yesterday, and since it was my turn to do ABC Friday over at There She Goes, I decided that I would make a shadow box for me to have....but then halfway through, I decided I would make it for my father.  My Papaw was a very special man, and had a huge, loving family that he held dear to his heart, as we do him to ours. I will miss him so much, but feel so blessed to have had him in my life. I love you, Papaw, and I will miss you always.

For my shadow box, I found some on sale at Michael's, 3 for $9.99. I took off the back, and covered it with some old SU paper. I didn't have a very good picture of my Papaw here, so I stold one from one of my cousins on Facebook.

I added some Satin Edged White Grosgrain, from the Ribbon Carousel, and American Crafts Thickers for his names. My brads are from Michael's, and my photo corners are the new Photo Corners Die-namics.

To finish it off, I used the Dadism's set to create my sentiment panel. I stamped several of the sayings to make a sort of list.

I really hope he likes this, if not, I am TOTALLY keeping it for myself!

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day.

Pin It For my card, I started with the I Spy Sketch Challenge for this week(ISSCO5), and some Boy's Life paper from Echo Park. I stamped my sentiment on White cardstock, and then cut it out with the Open Scalloped Doily Duo Die-namics. I used Night of Navy, Tangy Orange, and Summer Sun card stock. My ribbon is White Twill from the Ribbon Carousel, and I used some Lemon Drop Twine, as well. My brads are from Michael's and my spiral clip is from Creative Express. I used the new Photo Corners Die-namics for my top corner, and the Behind
the Camera Die-namics for my smaller circles.

For the inside of my card, I used more of the same supplies, and another sentiment from this set.

Here are the Die-namics I used:

Well, that is it for me for now!
