In Honor of Memorial Day...The Wall

When I saw this scetch (#21) from Insprired Blue Prints, I knew exactly what picture I wanted to use. I've been wanting to scrapbook this picture of my son on his visit to Washington DC. We came to the Vietnam Memorial Wall and I turned back to talk to him to explain something and this is the vision I saw. Of course I took a picutre of almost a private moment I felt, but I was compelled to. I wanted this to be a "WOW" page because the picture is so powerful to me. I want it to speak to others as it did to me. Honor those past and present who have fought for our country. Thank them for their service...without it where would we be? From one military family to another, thank you!

Our Dads

Father's Day is a few weeks away and I wanted to share a page I did of our dads and the words of wisdom we heard on a daily basis...well...maybe not daily, but it sure seemed like it at times. :) I found a picture of our dads together and decided to use it instead of two separate pictures like I had origianlly intended. I also alternated the "father-isms" from Eric's dad and mine. To help distinquish between them, besides having every-other-one his dads then my dads, I used different brad colors. Note that the brads aren't really brads, but colored pieces of paper I punched out to look like brads! This helps to save money when you have a lot to do! I also used our liquid glass on top of each to make them stand out like brads would and also used the liquid glass on the belt buckle to set it apart.

All items used are from Close To My Heart. The paper is from our Level 2 Sasparilla Paper Pack and the buckle set is from our Lovely Buckles stamp set and don't forget the liquid glass! Contact me for more details!

Hope you enjoy and I'd love to hear what you think. Celebrate your fathers, grandfathers, uncles or that special man in your life who gave you great advice or comforting words while you were growing up.

Best Friend Visit

When Rachel is able to get to Virginia to visit her best friend Hannah, they never let a photo opportunity to have a photo shoot go by! Though they don't get to see each other as often as they like, you could never tell that by watching them together...they pick up where they left off.
