This week’s challenge at Paper Crafting World is to make a project with a patriotic theme. The project must include a star and either silver or gold.
I fell in love with the Star mini-album that Melin recently released. I knew I wanted to make it right away, and this challenge was the perfect time!
So many of my family members were in the armed forces. My mother and father, Catherine and Edwin, served in the army in World War II; my father-in-law, Keith, served in the Korean War; my brother-in-law Joe, was a Marine who served in Guam; my brother, John, was in the Navy; my brother, Bill, was in the National Guard; and my son, Mike, is currently in the Marines. They’re all American Heroes, and I wanted to honor their service and commitment using this mini-album.
I had each photo printed in black and white for consistency. I used my Brother P-Touch label maker to identify each photo.
The album was bound using the Bind-it-All. It measures about 7 inches high so I could use 4 x 6 inch photos.
We would love to see your patriotic projects that include a star and either gold or silver! Please link them up over at Paper Crafting World! Happy Independence Day!
This is a wonderful memory of your patriotic heroes. Thanks so much for sharing it with us. Beautiful job!!!
