Before You Were My Dad

Here is a video I did showing a gift I made for Dad a few years ago. He was a professional baseball player...and had quite a collection of pictures and news stories that I was able to use in making the mini.



I used a medical file folder...it's construction is VERY sturdy...and I love the long fasteners that make it easy to add additional pages...I think I am going to have to create another project with a medical file folder as a base so I can do a tutorial for you guys.

Hope you are all headed towards a wonderful Thanksgiving. We have so much to be grateful for...and know I count you as a huge blessing in my life!

  1. What a beautiful way to remember and honor your Dad! I can see why he loved to look through it, you did a marvelous job at putting it together.
    I'm sorry for your loss, but I am sure that this book along with all of your own "undocumented" memories will bring you happy moments during this time of sadness.
    Hugs,

  2. You had me in tears with this video in honor of your Dad.

    What a treasure you have created here. And to have it at his funeral for his fellow ball players to take a walk down memory lane with him is truly AWESOME.

    I'm happy for you, in that your Dad was able to see your loving creation for him. You are the best :-) and a creative genius to boot. So glad you are my friend.

    Love you - Leslie
