As we approach this Memorial Day weekend, my title has two meanings. First and most important, I want to thank those who serve and those who have served our country in the Armed Forces. For the families who have made the ultimate sacrifice, there are no words of gratitude to express my family’s appreciation. While I’m a big fan of cooking out and getting together with family (doing both this weekend), my heart is sad for those whose loved ones are deployed and whose parties will be missing that special somone this year. My own husband is away this weekend but I am so lucky to have him home every couple of weeks or so. I know that he is particularly happy to be able to bring needed supplies to the frontline troops who need them!!
My title, for the second part, is about saving special memories. As we approach the end of Stampin’ Up’s celebration of National Scrapbooking Month, it seemed fitting to post a scrapbook page. This one was created using My Digital Studio. Talk to your demo about it because it is a super program with new “papers”, “stamps”, and “punches” becoming available all the time. I have been working on a scrapbook project (traditional) and have been using some of the designer layouts from MDS as a springboard. Such a time saver!!
The layout today comes from Margaret Moody over at Pals Paper Arts, their challenge PPA44. Go take a look at their wonderful projects using another super-usable sketch! I also used the colors from Diva Coffee Break Designs, DCBD 178. The patriotic colors matched my patriotic sentiment this morning!!
The pictures were taken in the cargo compartment of a C-5 at last year’s Andrews AFB airshow. Jacob just loves that big airplane!!
Thank you for stopping by. Wishing you a safe and happy Memorial Day holiday!!
