Happy Patriots Day!
For those of you that aren't from the US,
Today is the 12th anniversary of the terrorist bombing of the twin towers in New York City.
Like most in my age bracket and higher, I remember exactly where I was when I heard,
and I also remember almost everything I did for the rest of the day after!
Sadly I also remember the effects that day has had on myself, and on those I love!
Fitting for today I created a red white and blue layout!
My 19 year old nephew posted this picture on facebook a few weeks back,
and I snagged it up, and scrapped it!
He's an artist inside, I just know it!
Here's a close up of the picture, and the fabulous embellies all around it!
I love that I got to use that FREEDOM stamp that I got from Unity Stamps too!
Also, I used up a little bit of my sequin and button stash.
I know it's not a huge stash, but do you know how long those sequins can last??
I'm totally in love with this layout! I hope you are too??

Oozak: anything Goes with punches or dies (some of those stars are punches, and the edging on the strip of red was made with a punch as well!)
