United We Stand - FCCB #113

Today is Memorial Day, a day where we honor our fallen military men and women who have given their lives for our great country. Over at Fantabulous Cricut for Challenge #113 - Memorial Day we honor those military men and women by making a project using the color Red and has a flag, military symbol or poppy.

My son, Sgt. Kory Howard - 2007
My project share is a mini  6" x 6" scrapbook page of my son, Sgt. Kory Howard on his basic training graduation from Fort Leonardwood, Missouri, October 2007.  He served in the US army for 4 years, 2 tours in Iraq as a Imagery Analysis with Special Forces unit.  I am a proud mother and thankful to have him back home.

For my project I used a 6" x 6" blue base, added a 2" x 6" red pattern paper to the bottom edge.  I trimmed my photo to 3-1/2" x 3-1/2" and mounted onto 4" x 4" white cardstock.

I used my Ultimate Creative Series Sampler for the United We Stand, found on the Bonus 3 overlay, cut at 2".  This image is also found on the Stand and Salute cartridge.

My finishing touches include a yellow ribbon with three poppies from Wild Orchid Crafts, our wonderful sponsor this week.  I also, added two blue punched stars and two circle punches for a journal tag.

Thank you for stopping by today and remember our fallen military men and women.  Support our Troops!

Catch the Frenzy!
