Marine Corps Birthday Blog Hop - Nov. 10-15

HAPPY 236TH BIRTHDAY, MARINES!! As we celebrate the 236th birthday of the United States Marine Corps, we also remember all men and women who have chosen to serve our country so we can all be free. 

If you happened upon this hop, please visit Ashley's blog to get started. If you got here from Anita's blog, then you're in the right place!

For today I used some photos of my brother last year when he was first deployed. He has been a Marine for I think 11 years now and I don't see my brother doing anything else. I wish I could go visit him all the time but I am not financially able to with 4 kids but hopefully soon.

For my project today I used ribbon, distress stains, Pink By Design stamps, gold embossing powder, my pink ATG, and my E2 with craft paper and Echo Park paper that I got from a ScrapThat! kit (the Canada kit club)...

I am working on a couple of different things but I keep getting distracted but I am trying to post more during this hop!!!
