Close to my Heart


Hi Everyone,

I hope you had a nice weekend. We did a lot of errands and I spent untold hours working on reorganizing my scrap room. I am still not done but I am starting to see imporvement.

It's Monday and another challenge is up over at The Cuttlebug Spot. This week we all created something for July 4th. I used a digi image from Alison at Stretch N' Bubbles. Alison named this image "To Honor Our Heros".



This iamge hits close to my heart. My Dad was a prisoner of war in Germany during World War II. I grew up hearing all the stories about his life in Europe during those terrible times. My Dad passed over 19 years ago, but I still remember standing at his grave holding the American flag that covered his cofin.

Our family celebrates July 4, Memorial Day and Veteran's Day as a celebration of my Dad, as well as the thousands of others - past and present, that help to keep our nation safe and strong.

This image is available here at Alison's shop. I printed her out on white cardstock and again on the red stripped paper for her dress. The rest of the image is colored with copics. The stars behind her were embossed with the Cuttlebug folder "Stars." I popped her off the paper for added dimension. I sponged red chalk aound her and glittered the stars in the flag for a litle shimmer..

Have a great day,
Hugs,
Marcy
