Happy Memorial Day!

I hope you all are having a safe, fun-filled weekend! We've really had a great weekend of just family time. I'm not sure what's in store for today though. =) Just please remember while you're BBQing why you have this long weekend. Take a moment to remember all of the men and women who have given their lives in service to this country, as well as those that still continue to serve. I know a few people that will be celebrating this Memorial Day as their very first in memory of someone that they loved dearly. I'm also thinking of quite a few of my friends whose husbands are in Iraq and Afghanistan this Memorial Day. Be thankful for your friends and family!

I did this layout a few weeks ago for the new sketch going up at Scrapbook Challenges today. At the time, I didn't realize that it was going to be posted on Memorial Day.. but how fitting it is! I'm starting on Daniel's deployment album, so you all will probably start seeing more of those. I'm thinking that it definitely needs to be done before he leaves again. Anyways, I'm really excited that I finally get to post it today.. I'm realllly happy with how it turned out!


Here's the sketch:


If you do the sketch, feel free to upload it to the thread in the group and to the gallery and be entered to win the monthly sponsor prize!!

Also, there's a new challenge forum that you all should check out! It's just getting started, but of to Scrap for Therapy and set up an account!

Have a safe Memorial Day!!
-Dani
