{In Honor of our Veterans & a Giveaway!}

Welcome and thanks for joining in on the Imaginisce Veteran's Day blog hop!
The Imaginisce DT has projects to share this week in honor of our Veterans, and the service they have given to our country.  I am especially grateful since my Dad was a member of the US Navy. Here is my layout in honor of him...

I included my Mom's dependent card she carried in her wallet to show she was a military wife. Notice the 1949 date!
How about a giveaway of some awesome Imaginisce goodies???  Just leave a comment and I'll put your name in the drawing. Become a follower of my blog (or let me know that you already are) and I'll add your name in twice!!!  I'll announce the winner Monday evening.

Thanks so much for stopping by, now hop on over to Shellye's blog!

Hi Mary Ann! I love the layout. My dad is retired from the Army and my mom and I worked on a military book for him. I wish I had seen this layout before! (Maybe I'll sneak and re-do a page.)

:) I'm a fairly recent follower of your blog, but your posts have been inspiring! Thanks for sharing!

This is awesome. Love the way you recreated the flag. All that stitching and distressing. Wow. Great use of memorabilia too.

Caryn S said...

My two new favorite techniques are distressing and stitching and you used them both with fantastic results! My dad was military too but I have to say that's the first time I have seen the dependent card, by my time as a brat we had the IDs.

senoritaml said...

Great layout! I would so use this in my history class.

Aimee Kidd said...

This is such a fabulous layout! What a great way to honor your Mom and Dad! I love that you still have your Mom's card and included it! My hubby is ex-Navy and this is making me want to dedicate a layout to him!
