Happy Memorial Day Weekend

I think about all I have and all in life that I take for granted. All of these things come by the grace of God and our service men and women who fight to protect our freedom to live as we do. I was looking through some pictures today online and it brought the emotions out in me as to what Memorial Day really represents.


It isn't just a day off from work for us to get together and cook out, party and enjoy ourselves. It is a day of remembrance. We should take a moment out of our busy lives tomorrow and say a little prayer asking for God to watch over the men and women who fight every day for our freedom. They do not do this because they HAVE to, they do this because they WANT to.


They unselfishly put their lives on the lines for us. Some come home, some don't. I am blessed in my life to be related to several great service men and women who have helped protect our freedom. My husband, United States Marine Corps, my sister, United States Navy, my brother in law, United States Navy, my grandfather, United States Army (RIP) and several uncles and great uncles.

Take a moment to thank those around you for their dedication and service. Take a moment to say a prayer for those who are away from their families, enduring extreme weather and the hidden enemies who's main goal is to take our freedom away from us. However you do it, just take a moment to remember and be thankful.


Please have a safe and happy holiday. Happy scrappin'......over and out ya'll.................Photobucket

Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???

With that said..........
