Heartfelt Blog Hop

Having fun on the hop?  I hope so!  
You probably came from Angela's Blog.   
The VC Rocks homepage is here.  
The next blog after mine is Diane's. 

Today I want to share a scrapbook page I made with Stampin' Up!'s My Digital Studio.  It's a page of my Dad, who passed away in March of this year.  Even though we didn't live in the same state,  I still miss him quite a bit. 

I used the February page template from A Year in Review Photobook in MDS.
It's so easy to just drop in those photos and make a title.
My Dad is playing the accordian - an instrument that is necessary for playing Cajun music.
He wasn't the best player, but he taught several of our family members to play.  My brother even had a band that was nominated for a Grammy Award a few years back. 
This picture taken a few years ago shows Daddy enjoying his music again, after he had been ill for several months with his diabetes.  I have great memories of him from that day.
One of the life lessons he taught all 9 of his children:  
Deal with the crisis at hand,
and then move on with the living of life.

Speaking of moving on - the next blog is Diane's.

Have a happy hop day!
