Fancy That...

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.


{Remember}


products used: cs - kaisercraft; pp - Pretty Little Studio, Nikki Sivils, Jillibean Soup; alphas - Jenni Bowlin; FTD - filmstrip, build a bloom, scallop floret; other - buttons, machine stitching, crate paper sticker, bingo marker, maya road transparency & kraft calendar, string, glimmermist (juniper), paint, the crafters template (small circles), d-lish washi tape.




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
