Hello Blog Land! It's Remembrance Day here in Canada, and I know other countries have their own version of this holiday today as well. It's a day to stop and remember all those soldiers who fought for our freedom, and those brave soldiers who are currently enlisted. I know I take it for granted sometimes, but when I stop and think about all the rights and freedoms that we enjoy today, I am so grateful for those men and women who risked their lives so that we could live ours! We took the kids to the Remembrance Day Ceremony this afternoon and they got to see all the soldiers, cadets and veterans. It was pretty cool to teach Ethan about the reasons why we observe this holiday.
Here's a layout that I created about my "little middle" and his super caa-ute smile! These photos were taken last year at our Church's Father's Day picnic.
I used the super fun Coredinations gear paper. When I sanded it, I found even more embossed layers that I didn't even know existed! I thought the Tim Holtz Gears would go perfectly with this paper too. I cut them with acetate and used some alcohol inks and distress stickles on them.
I cut the hearts with more of Tim's dies, and embossed them with the Sizzix brick folder. I painted them, then added some glimmer glam on top of them and smeared them around. I really like the effect it gave them!
I'm entering this layout in the challenge over at Frosted Designs. They're challenge is "embossing".
Well, that's it for tonight. I'm cropping tomorrow, so I've gotta go pack up my stuff....that's the one thing I don't like about scrapping somewhere else...I could easily become a hermit scrapper if I was a little more lazy and a little less social. lol
Thanks for stopping by!
