I adore Mou's super neat-vintagey--looking page!  Her apron is fun and flirty and the row of kitchen images are so dang cute!!  I think it's very cool how she outlined the stamps.  (justWOW)

Happy Memorial Day!
If you missed our Special Memorial Day blog post yesterday, please scroll down to see it.  A sale and giveaway is involved  :)

I adore this super happy card!  I love that Kalyn popped up the pocket and filled it with pretty flowers :)  The heat embossed sentiment is perfect!

Michele's coloring skills are da bomb...she really brought this gecko to life!  Her color combo is cool and I love the stamped paper strip on the right - it's a subtle pattern but it really adds a perfect touch.

It is safe to eat the stickers that are on fruit, and the glue used to 
put them on is actually food grade

smooches to you friends

A VERY special blog hop

We are joining forces with Operation Write Home to honor the memory of those who have given their lives in service to their country…and families, our hearts are with you as you go through the pain of remembrance once again. Your sacrifices have not been made in vain; our land stands strong and free because of all who have defended her.

I have many family members who have served this beautiful country and I am extra-grateful for them.

I used sketch 192.  I used Bold Buzzwords for my sentiment.  The flowers are from our Pocket dies set, The oval is from our Ovals 1 die collection and I topped it off with one of our Feathers dies.  The sketch is a good one, so it was easy to just stick things where it told me to LOL :)

The blog hop starts HERE

Memorial Day was once called by another name. 
    Decoration Day. At the beginning, it was called, "Decoration Day" because the purpose of it was to visit cemeteries and place flowers on graves of fallen loved ones who had died in the Civil War. In 1882, many people began calling it "Memorial Day". After World Wars I and II, it became accepted as a day to remember all of our military men and women who died, not just those from the Civil War era. A Federal law was passed in 1987 officially acknowledging the name of the holiday as "Memorial Day". Veterans' Day is observed in the month of November.
