Remember our American Heroes on Veteran's Day

I acted as a chaperone for my daughter's US History class on a trip to tour some of the US Monuments dedicated to our fallen heroes.  I really feel blessed at times like this to live so close to Washington D.C.  We visited the Korean War Memorial, the Vietnam Memorial and Arlington National Cemetery.
This page was so easy to pull together using the Washington DC Collection from Paper House.    The paper already had a collage style background incorporating marble, a US flag and a city street map.  The collection also includes cardstock stickers and 3D stickers which provided perfect little accents.   All I really added was chipboard letters, a stenciled star, and a tag for journaling.

We always observe Veteran's Day at our home by flying the US flag in honor of our fallen heroes.

Thanks for stopping by!  Susie

    It sounds like you had a truly meaningful visit to these monuments. The page that you made with the photos is beautiful--nice collage effect.
