Story Scrapbook Challenge: Fathers

Father, grandfather, uncle, brother, son, grandson, husband, boyfriend, we all have them, well we have some of the categories.  In this month of Father’s Day in the US, I want you to tell a story about a significant male member in your life, be it family or otherwise.  Perhaps you would rather tell a story about a male neighbour, teacher, friend.

Sing their praises, tell us about them, maybe describe a particular event, or a sage piece of advice they have given you, a lesson they have taught you, and yes lessons come from both young and old.

And yes I know there may be some of you out there that have not lead happy family lives and for that I’m sorry, but it might be a story you would like to record, and perfectly fine if you want to keep it private.  This story challenge is all about your stories.

So with that, go forth and tell your story about a man in your life.

The creative team have jumped on board with some terrific example pages and we all came to the challenge from different directions:

Audrey’s sweet sweet page documents all the special things about her son, what a gift this will be one day when he can read back and know just how precious he is.
