Korea - 59

I believe that this weekend in Canada is like our Memorial Day, next weekend in the US
Oops, thank your for the correction, Jasmine.  We have several holidays that seem to happen at about the same time, I was thinking this was another.  Oh well, my mistake!  Yeah, and in the US Memorial Day is the kick-off to summer also.

Anyway, I wanted to pay tribute to my favorite veteran who served in WW II, Korea, and Vietnam, 28 years in all, my Dad, my hero.  I am so fortuante that my Dad came home from all the wars.  So many did not.  My husband hardly remembers his Dad as he was just 4 years old when his Dad was killed in Korea.  His Dad was a pilot and his plane went down, not from enemy fire, most likely due to ice on the wings.  My husband served 24 years in the Navy.  so yeah, I am all about waving the flag and shouting for the red, white and blue. And that makes me think that I just have to say that I think it is deplorable what is being told about our Navy Seals and the operation that took Osama bin Laden.  It is not information that needs to be devulged to the publice IMHO.

OK, this blog is not about politics etc, sorry for the little digression.  I have so many WONDERFUL pps to work with right now.  Bo Bunny Gabrielle and Time Piece, Glitz Lace  and Grace and Love Games. WOW,  all these papers are soooooooo  gorgeous that when I sit down to scrap, I don't quite know which line to go to!! 

But about this layout - the red circle layer in the back is a new paperpad from Tim Holtz that I love.  It is a resist kraft paper.  Here I have used fired brick Distress Stain to color the pp.  The rest of the layers are all from Bo Bunny Time Piece.  he gears and hinges are Timmy Grungeboard that I heat embossed with gold UTEE and walnut stain distress embossing powder.  The wings are Dusty Attic and I have outlined them with a Pinpoint Roller Quickie Glue pen that I got at Archivers - it is way cool, just draw, outline etc, sprinkle with glitter and you're done.  Makes a nice job of laying down glitter.  It's mfg by Sakura.  I added the cheesecloth around the photo to mimic the camoflage netting over the tent in the photo.  I just look at this photo and think MASH, you know?  LOL!!

The heart is sprayed with Moomshadow Mist Bucket of Blood Red, IRL it has a very cool shimmering effect.

Not much else to say about this LO, thanks for visiting.  A VERY BIG thank you to everyone who has become a follower of my blog, I really appreciate it!!  I am trying to visit your blogs and become a follower if I can.  Blogger is not being nice right now and on some blogs I am not able to Follow, hope they get things straightened out SOON!!
