Today is my Dad's birthday.
I have this wonderful tradition of getting his birthday card made/sent late. I think it may have to do with the fact that his birthday is so close to Halloween and by the time the end of the month comes around, the boys have me on candy/costume/decoration/school festival overload and it slips my mind. And I know he knows I don't mean to be late...but why mess with tradition? This way, he gets to celebrate his special day just a little bit longer!
So while I don't have the card ready to share, I can share a Studio J layout I did of a special birthday party we threw him several years ago.
Studio J: Stardust Reflections Kit
You see, my dear father has a slight appreciation for all things Stargate. This particular year, he received a Stargate DVD season set, a soundtrack, a book, a boardgame, and yes, even a Stargate shaped cake...complete with DHD cupcake. My brother put together a Teal'c from spare G.I. Joe parts to finish off the look. We all wore standard Stargate wear: black and olive.
He was quite surprised when he walked in the door and saw us all!
So Dad, even though the card will most likely get to you just before Thanksgiving (just being real here), you know I love you and hope your day is full of wonderful surprises.
PS: I know the journaling looks wonky when you click on the picture to enlarge it...but it doesn't look that way in real life!
