Challenge #139 - Honoring Our Veterans

Hello friends!

With Veterans Day just around the corner on November 11th, our challenge this week is to create a project to honor our veterans and recognize the sacrifices of our nation's heroes. We are looking forward to seeing any project you create with our veteran's in mind. Be sure to link your projects to this post no later than 11:55pm (MST) on Saturday, November 18th. 


For those of you who have been actively participating in our challenges this last quarter, you may want to stick around to the very end of this post...we have some exciting news :)

BUT now...I would love to introduce you to Ashley !
We are so fortunate to have Ashley guest designing with us for our challenge today!
Hello! I'm Ashley, a 30-something nurse living in Indiana. Every time winter rolls around, I wonder why I haven't moved south yet? I'm engaged and together we have three dogs. I scrapbook 12 x 12, 8.5x11, and pocket style pages and I occasionally make cards. I like variety :) I also like to read and work out (because I love to eat!).

My maternal grandfather was an Army vet and died two years ago. He had a military funeral and I've struggled with how to document his ceremony. I'm grateful for this challenge! I wanted to keep with the traditional red, white, and blue theme and this star stamp was the perfect foundation for my page.


You can find more of Ashley's beautiful projects here (be sure to stop by and show her some love):

Here are the wonderful projects from our design team:

I've been looking forward to scrapbooking these old photos of my Grandpa, Great-Uncle, and Great-Grandpa...three of my favorite Veterans.

Erica

Michele
