I had to scrap this picture.  Last week Dad was feeling so bad from Chemo side-effects.    All he dis was lay in bed or on the couch.   It was hard to take this picture but I wanted it because of his dog
Freckles beside him.   When I actually stood up to take the picture Freckles had his head laying over Dad's shoulder but moved when I moved.    But Freckles is Dad's constant companion anytime, but while he was so sick last week he never left his side, literally, was always touching him somewhere.
When Dad got up to go to another room, he literally walked touching his foot each step.

I thought the August 14th sketch at  "THE STUDIO CHALLENGES"  was perfect to show just this
single picture, not a lot of embellishments or anything, just let the picture be the center of attention.

My back ground paper is from the DCWV-Seaside Yacht  stack and the corner papers are from
the Craft Smith - Indigo Gold stack,  then I just used a navy card stock to punch around the
picture.   Then my title are Thickers.

Here is the sketch and the link to  "THE STUDIO CHALLENGES"
