Memorial Day H{ippity} Hop

I'd like to take a moment to thank all of the brave men and women who have served our country. For many of us it's a day of barbecues, beaches, lakes, boating and outdoor fun, but let us not forget what this day is really about! And for those of you who have loved ones serving now, thank you for the sacrifices that you and your families make for all of us! You are truly appreciated!

My project today is not a patriotic one but a layout of my beautiful niece on her First Holy Communion. I love this paper from the Shabby Green Door and thought it would be perfect for these photos. The stamps I used today are from Ippity's Now and Always and one from the Winter Release, Love in Return.

I wanted to participate in the Fun with Fabric Challenge for Moxie Fab World, so I made the flower with Love My Tapes brown gingham fabric tape and stamped the petal from Now and Always. After cutting the petal out, I inked it with Ranger Distress Ink and covered it with Alene's paper glaze, sprinkling it with Martha Stewart green glitter while it was still wet. For the flourish stamp, I colored it in with Copic Markers and then embellished it with a little Recollections "bling".



If you would like to purchase Love In Return or any of the other previous release stamps at an awesome SALE price, just click HERE!

xx, Nora Anne
