I have been trying to work on this for a few weeks but the past 2 especially
I would open up PSP and Photoshop and nothing would come
Then today it just kind of flew out there lol
I know many younger people these days don't have any idea what sacrifices were made during WWI and WWII, i know i don't, I was born in 1974. But I guess the school's I attended seemed to reach me.
I remember every year we would read the Flanders Fields poem over and over. And in the older grades we would have to memorize it and recite it. I never did memorize it though, like I said i have a terrible memory, while worse as I get older it wasnt much better when I was young lol.
I have started to notice not as many people wear poppies anymore. I know I lost mine, which I hate doing. I usually buy a few of them throughout the couple of weeks they are on sale.
While my own grandfather was kicked out of the army because he had flat feet, my husband's grandfather did serve, he was in the Navy. I couldnt even imagine what he went thru. He saw death, more of it than anyone should ever have to see. He was on the ships that would have to retrieve the dead bodies from the water after a battle. Im sure you dont want to know about it or even think about it, I know i dont. But its important to remember what these brave men and women faced, all for our freedom. My husband's grandfather survived the war, but it left terrible scars. He rarely ever spoke about what he did during those years. Until his death a few years ago, my husband had no idea what his grandfather had actually done during the war because he wouldnt talk about it. I wish for a time when we wont have to fight each other. But whether that ever happens or not, we can NEVER FORGET! Or their lives will have been sacrificed for nothing.
Before I get to the kit, I managed to create a layout with a picture of my husband's grandfather. Oh and i also made a quickpage to share with you all. And please dont forget, I began as a tagger and still am, so I am new to layouts and quickpages and things. This is all new to me, so please be gentle. I am going to have to post them as thumbnails because they are a tad too large for my blog.
This is the layout I created
If you want to see it full size, cause its distorted, then click the thumbnail below
And this is a sample of the Quickpage
The actual QP is 800 X 800, so this one has been resized to fit my blog and looks way better at full size
You can download the quickpage HERE
Oh and did I mention this is a full size kit??
All papers are 12 X 12 and at 300 DPI, so it can be printed.
Well here is the preview
You can download the kit HERE
And while sometimes I get discouraged when no thank you is left, if you arent going to thank me for this kit, at least say a prayer or have a moment of silence for those who sacrificed their lives so we could have the freedoms that we have.
