For my beautiful dad

Super quick post today as I'm off to Brussels in a few hours for the weekend and won't have a chance to post this until after the deadline for Mojo Monday #462.

 This is one of the layouts I'll be doing to celebrate my dad's life.  Julee Tilman has such wonderful sketches and this week's was perfect for the first layout I want to complete before I travel to Australia next month.  This will go to one of my siblings or my mother.  It's not quite finished but just entails sticking the words down.  It's to go in a black Ikea box frame.

Does anyone know of a smile die???

Dies : Verve Beautiful Flowers, Frantic Stamper Bicycle,  WMS Stiched and Scalloped Frames
Stamps : Verve Strong Anchor (perfect for my dad)

Here's a final photo of the finished layout.  I added some Tim Holtz Movers & Shapers Mini Gears to the design (needed something down there and as my dad loved anything mechanical these seemed perfect - 4 small gears for myself and 3 siblings.

Thanks for stopping by,
