Today I want to share another layout created for The Papercraft Hub. This image of Liam has been sitting on my desk for some time. I guess I've just been waiting for the right kind of inspiration to scrap it! LOL! So with ANZAC day recently past, I decided it was time to document the story...
My son Liam, celebrates his birthday on Remembrance Day - November 11. Last year he claimed it was his "luckiest" birthday ever with the date falling on 11.11.11. :) But regardless of it being lucky or not, Liam has always had a deep interest in knowing more about the day itself. Remembrance Day is a favourite subject of his, at school.
Last year, during our big family camping trip, we took an opportunity to visit Canberra's War memorial. It is such a spectacular place and we would have loved to have spent much more time there than we actually did.
What we did do however, was take a guided tour at one stage, and I was so proud of the way Liam stood so attentive, asking many questions.
This photo was snapped as he stood in front of the wall of Remembrance.

I have used the new release Fancy That Dies filmstrip, build a bloom and the scallop floret. I've torn the filmstrip in half again and used only half of the build a bloom to replicate the poppies in the photos.
Thanks for visiting..x
