Good afternoon all, hope you're all enjoying your Wednesday. I'm feeling a bit nostalgic today as it's Emmy's birthday!! I can't believe she's nine! I wanted to share with you two of my favourite layouts with my most treasured photos of her. They were taken in summer 2005. Peter had just returned to work after being a house husband for a few years. Emmy was still adjusting to him working away from home! These photos pick up the joy in her eyes on his return. I can't remember where the papers came from, the butterfly was a stamped image. I added an apt poem to the layout (I warned you I love using em!), I think it was anonymous but I found it in, "Creating Keepsakes, Scrapbook Tips and Techniques". The poem reads,

"A Daddy and his Daughter,
together hand in hand,
though he isn't always with her,
she says, she understands,

When he's away at work or play,
the memory of him lingers,
the little girl smiles because, she knows,
he's wrapped around her fingers,

A tilt of her head, a smile, a lowered glance,
a hug and a kiss and a, 'Daddy pleeease,'
he doesn't stand a chance,

In later years he will recall,
with tenderness and love,
this charming girl, with hands in his,
a blessing from above" .
