Happy Father’s Day!

Project Description

I am blessed to have two great men to celebrate and remember today.

My dad, Willie Lucas, passed away in 2000; and there is not a day that goes by I don’t think of him.  Even though my parents separated in when I was young, my dad was always there.  He called me every day, never missed a concert or event, and took me on amazing adventures.  Anyone lucky enough to have known my dad will tell you I get my sense of humor and orneriness from him!

Fifteen years after my parents separated, my mom met my step-dad, Dave.  I could never have imagined a better man for my mom, and he has treated me like his own from day one.

Months ago, I actually found Step-Father paper at Red Letter Journal!  I was so excited and knew immediately what I was going to do for Dave for Father’s Day.

This project is a simple way to make a personal gift from the heart.  I started with the really awesome paper from Red Letter Journal and a few pictures of Dave and I.  Next, I went back and forth with writing my own poem to Googling poems about step dads.  Needless to say, I didn’t like anything I wrote or anything I found.  Nothing seemed to express how I truly felt.  In the end, I found a great “Fathers” acronym that described Dave perfectly – Faithful, Always There, Trustworthy, Honoring, Ever-Loving, Righteous, Supportive.  I matted everything with some great shimmery paper and mounted it onto the Step Father paper.  As an added touch, I used silver Stickles to underline some key words that describe Dave.  Simple, easy, and from the heart.

    Great project Amy! I was raised by my mother and step father and he raised me as his own. He has passed away, but I still think of him as my dad, which he was. It's great that you made this project to let Dave know how much you care care about him and that even though you will always remember your own Dad, you two can still have a special relationship.
