Father's Day Challenge and RAK!

Happy Father's Day! I'm hosting my first challenge on My Daughter's Wish's Wishchick blog, and it's in honor of dear old dad! The theme is "something my father gave me", and you can check out all of the details here. You've got a week to play and post, and you can use any medium - layout, card, ATC, written blog post, anything! I'm giving away a RAK for the challenge, but I'm also giving away a RAK here, too! Just leave a comment about what your father gave you, and I'll pick one random winner on Sunday, June 22. You'll need to post by 11:59 pm, Saturday, June 21 to be eligible for the drawing. By the way, Saturday June 21 is my Journey Travel Mini-album class! Check it out on the right:)
Here's what you could win

I have an amazing dad, and there are so many things he has given to me over the years, but since this is an art blog, I thought I'd share his art. Gary is a gifted photographer, and when I was a teenager, he taught me how to use a 35mm. I've been using a point and shoot for the last six years, since my daughter was born, so f settings and such are fuzzy for me now. What has remained is what he taught me about framing shots. Even with my little digital, I stil capture some great photographs because he taught me to see like a photographer. Here are a few of his pictures. They were all too big to fit on my scanner, so I'm afraid they are pictures of pictures, so excuse the poor quality!




These are just a few of the many, many beautiful shots he's taken. Thank you, Gary! Happy Father's Day!

  11. Total inspiration! I enjoyed playing for Father's Day weekend.

    My Papa who I trully miss since he is so far from me ( he is in APAC )taught me how to be a good daughter and a sister . He showed me how to love, how to share, how to accept, how to be grateful with all the blessings we have received. Being the eldest of the 5 children, my papa taught me how to understand. He is a good provider, my true hero. And I'm so lucky my DH is like him.

    here's my 2 LOs I made last weekend.

  12. Lovely, My father also instilled in my brother and me a love for photography. I can't wait to put together his collection. He has managed to scan thousands of slides into his computer. Now I have to do something with them all.
