I am grateful for parents who have instilled in me a reverence for Memorial Day. It’s a time to pause and reflect and to think of those who have sacrificed so much for our freedom and well-being. I am so grateful to live in a peaceful place and thankful to those who have protected the rights I enjoy every single day. I think of our service men and women, as well as my ancestors who have paved the way for my family.
I added several patterned paper layers behind my main photo and then sprinkled star stickers from the Let Freedom Ring cardstock stickers in the top left corner.
I used letter sticker from my stash for the title, and then filled in the spaces with the Let Freedom Ring pinwheel and phrase stickers.
I used one of the 3×4 cut apart cards for my journaling and then accented it with a floral sticker. I placed the banner sticker at the bottom of the page, tucking it underneath my photo strip.
As my children have grown, busy schedules have crowded in and I miss these drives to the cemeteries. I miss it and definitely want to make the time to do this with my family again.
Wishing you a peaceful and gratitude-filled day as you ponder the people who have sacrificed to bless your life!
