Dad is Turning 80

Hello friends:

I need your help. My Dad is turning 80 at the end of this month. I am in the process of putting together a mini-album for his birthday. The goal is to have pictures from every decade of his life...along with quotes about Dads/Fathers and I want there to be 80 of them and I am running out of ideas. I would love it if you would help me by leaving a message here finishing one of these sentences:


A Daughter needs a Dad because....


A Daughter loves her Dad because....


I have just finished organizing my studio and have created two boxes filled with surprises and scrapping goodies. If you leave me a message here finishing one of those two sentences, I will
put your name in a drawing for one of those two boxes. I am planning on doing the drawing on Monday the 17th, so check back here and I will let you know who the winners of the goodie boxes are.
Thanks so much for your help. Have a great day
Jann

  41. Well that gives you at least half of your 80. :)
    I have a book of 100 reasons Why a Daughter needs a Dad if you need more. I pulled out some of my favorites.

    Good luck with your little project. It sounds like such a wonderful idea that he will surely cherish! I can't wait to see you finished product!

  42. "A daughter needs a dad to learn that when he says it will be okay soon, it will be."

    I think that comes from the same book that elizbailey is quoting from.

    I love that you are doing this for your dad. He is going to be in tears!!!

  43. Wow! This is going to be amazing! I do hope you'll share it once it's finished. The list shared by elizbailey is awesome, so I don't know if I can come up with much to help, but here's one that came to mind:

    A Daughter loves her Dad because he loved her first.

  47. A girl needs her daddy because who else can throw her into the pool a 100 times and not get tired or carry her to her bed when she is too exhausted to walk herself. And who else is big and strong enough to scare the monsters so badly that they wouldn't dare come in to HER house again!
