{the 4th}

I made this for Scrapbook Daisies and although it isn't a 4th of July layout, it is red, white & blue!
(papers & journaling spot: We R Memory Keepers, cardstock: Bazzill)

I used a few more of my Dad's old Navy photos, along with his service card. I'm making my way through all the memorabilia he kept from his time in the Navy, and hope to have the album completed by years end to give to my Mom.

For all my friends in the states, enjoy today and remember to make sure you're in the photos too!!

As always, thanks for stopping by

Fantastic! I love to see pages like this with old photos and the memorabilia. What a lovely gift for your Mom. And it's very patriotic even if it's not exactly for the 4th. It works! :)

Such great pages and cute ideas. I've not worked on my albums in forever and this really makes me want to get to it! Your last line on this post was the truth! No one will ever know we existed if we are always taking every picture. I found you at Made in a Day blog hop and I'm following. Hope you'll stop over at Quirky Vistas!
