Creative genius I tell you!

The other day, I was going through photos, and I found this little number ...

This picture is not only hilarious, but it also tugs on my heart strings ... yes, I have them.  This was 1975.  I had just lost my Mom, my Dad had just lost his high school sweetheart, and there we were just trying to hang on for dear life.  We were living with my Grandma and the big Daddy-Daughter Date came up.  What a trooper my Dad was ... and what a great sport to wear this homemade mess.  What?  You didn't realize that his outfit was homemade?  Stop it! 
Since this picture defined what a great Dad I have, I decided that I would like to use it for Father's Day.  So, of course, I called up Miss Kacey.  Because she's a creative genius.  I told her that I'd like to make a card out of this picture.  She giggled.  Five minutes later ... she emailed me this masterpiece!  In one hour, it was waiting for me at the local Walmart to pick up and mail to Overgaard, AZ.

He loved it.

I don't know how she does it, but she does it good.  How did she get that paperclip on the picture?  How did she come up with that cute notebook paper background?  How did she know how to put it all together to create exactly what I wanted?  I don't know.  

On Mother's Day, I wanted my little Nursery kids to be able to give their Momma's something at church.  So I sent her a sweet little picture, and she turned it into a gift.  

Look at this adorable graduation announcement ... front & back ~

And these are my super cute nephews & niece in the form of a perfect Christmas card.  

So my point is ... she's a genius.  And if you are like me, and you have no idea how to participate in this digital age that we're in ... you should contact Kacey.  She's good.  She's real good.  Amen.

That brought a little tear to my eye. What a sweet card. Your dad is a sport!

And he DID love it... It's still sitting out to look at... of course, I take every opportunity to show it to people who stop by the house! It's good for a chuckle and it was perfect for Father's Day... especially when you know the whole story...
Good job Kacey... and good idea Karen!
