Land of the Free, Because of the Brave

I just love when the mojo flows! I took this picture last fall at my daughter's elementary school. They were celebrating Veteran's Day. Since my husband and I are both Veterans, I was especially moved by this display of flags trailing down the hall. I had the photo printed but didn't quite know what I wanted to do with it until I received my May Gossamer Blue kit. When I saw this red paper, I just knew I wanted to use it for this photo.

The only thing not included in the kit were the wood veneer stars from Studio Calico. I wanted the words FREE and BRAVE to really stand out so not only did I use a different color, I also cut each letter 4 times and glued them together to make my own "chipboard" letters.

Fly Away

I stumbled across this photo I had taken a year or so back and realized I had never scrapbooked it. It's such a favorite of mine. We were pleasantly surprised one morning to walk outside and see this balloon float on by. Since this picture was taken, we have seen many more. I am fascinated by them each time I see them. One of these days I would love to go up in one...until then I will just take pictures and dream.

Surfer Girl

I must confess I love the beach. I know many people would agree with me on this. I am also fortunate enough to get to go at least every year if not every other year. During our beach times I become a maniac with my camera. I love beach pictures, little kids running around with sandy feet, sweet sunrises...ahhhh. Words just can't describe the feeling.

Today's layout includes pictures of my youngest learning to "surf".
