Take it Easy...!

Happy Father's Day!!!

This week Sassy Cheryl's has a great Challenge #170 For a Guy or a Boy...  I knew immediately what image I wanted to use... =)

Every year, most of my immediate family gathers at our Family Beach House on Cape Cod for Father's Day.  We started this about 30 years ago, (before my kids were even born...).  My parents have both gone on to Glory, and we continue to gather along with extended family and friends.  Tomorrow we expect more than 50 ranging in age from 4 weeks old to over 80...  Fun times!!  I can still picture my Dad relaxing in the Hammock that hangs between two old "scrub" pine trees in our side yard...  All ages love the hammock (even many of our dogs), but I think my Dad loved it most of all!!

This Sassy Cheryl image "All About Dad" practically jumped from her shop right onto my computer =)  I just LOVE the image - brings me right to that Hammock of ours on the Cape...

The papers are from My Mind's Eye - Sweet Caroline.  The burlap ribbon is Close to My Heart, the flowers were cut from the burlap ribbon with a Tim Holtz SizZix flower die and attached with a brad.  The Sentiment is from Lili of the Valley.
