SUO Challenge #52 Photo Op

Hi All,

My wonderful dad passed away in June 2012 and I started making a memory page for him this week and thought I would submit it to the SUO Challenge #52 as it involves a photo.

This page is a tribute to my dad: a man who worked so hard to keep food on the table and a roof over our heads when I was young! I miss my dad so much! Anyways all of the supplies (cardstock etc..) are from Stamping Up. The paper for page and for the rossette were from the Beau Chateau collection. The blue cardstock underneath my dad's funeral card was from the in colours 2011-2013. Used one of my all time favourite retired SU punches for the black border around the funeral card and rosette. Then crimped it! Even the big silver brads (5/8 neutrals assortment) in the corner are from Stamping UP! It was back in the day when brads of all kinds were cool and the crop-a-dile was king! Felt good to use some retired SU products for this memory page!  The white butterfly is from the Beautiful Butterflies Big Z Die and the black one from the Beautiful Wings Embosslit. SU rhinestones on the butterfly and a nice SU button on the rossette make this page a beautiful page to look at. Thanks for letting me share this page with you as we remember my dad!


  1. Jenny, what a beautiful tribute to your father. Your page brought tears to my eyes, because my father is very close to passing too (probably this weekend), and I know your pain. (((Hugs))) Thanks for sharing this with us at SUO Challenges.

  2. Stunning, Jenny! thanks so much for sharing this beautiful tribute to your dad!

  3. I'm happy that Stampin' Up! provides us with the tools to commemorate the special people in our lives with a tribute such as this page. Beautiful. Thanks for playing along with the SUO Challenge!
