Fathers Day Album

I made this licenses plate album for Roger a few years ago. I took some of his old plates and pictures of his cars and made an album that a guy would love.

I started with a picture of the camaro he had when we started dating 28 years ago. His old camaro and his "new" camaro are both red and black so I went with papers in those colors.
Here he is with his "new" camaro still on the trailer. You can't see his face very well with the sun blaring, but he was so excited. Just like a kid in a candy store.
We've had fun taking it to the Rollin Oldies car show each year. And it's even more fun when Roger wins a trophy each year.

And Tyler made sure Dad took it to the Eddyville Drags to try it out. Now Roger has the racing bug and enjoys taking the car down there to see how fast it will go.
My heart stops each time the guys race. But they have fun and I'd rather have them on a straight track than a circle track. Less accidents this way.

The album is very easy to make and if you need the inserts for the license plate album let me know. I have some in stock. I'm making Tyler one for his birthday so keep watching for more car pictures. Tyler has had quite a few more cars than his Dad so the album will be thicker.
