We Are A Family

Hello Everyone,

Today has been a very hard day.  We lost a fellow scrapbooker last week, and today, at her funeral, it just re-instated for me how much of a family our scrapbooking community is.  We stick together and provide support as well as share our lives with each other.  I wouldn't want it any other way!!  We are one big Family.

On a lighter note, I have my design team challenge for Scrap The Boys.  This months challenge is to use a handmade embellishment.  You can also use an embellishment from one of the following Brands:  Lil Red Rocket, A Lil Something, Greatest View, Charms Creations, Chelley Bean Designs and there are many, many more...

Here is my page:

The photos for this page were from a trip to Airlie Beach with family.  My sister-in-law Katrina and her fiance Tom are both in the Navy and participated in the Anzac Day march there.  My boys, Jackson and Lucas had a little dress-up time with their Navy Hats and I took some photos.

I have hand made the flag banner with fabric and twine.  I have also used a spotted button from Purple Pumpkin.  They have some fabulous buttons and handmade embellishments.

I stamped the stars in the background with White Opals Embossing Powder and then misted over the top.  I hand stitched the border. I used a Dusty Attic Chipboard Anchor and knotted twine to create some chain to hang the anchor.

Thanks for checking out my page.

Rest in Peace Larnie and Matthew.

Life is too short.  Cherish your friends and family always!

Love Renee xo
