Tuesday Speed Scrap at MouseScrappers!

I loved the instructions for this Speed Scrap. The member hosting has a husband currently serving in the Navy away from home.

Her instructions were:
  1. There are 5 branches of service. Please include 5 stars (pixie dust doesn't count for stars in this context)
  2. There are thirteen stripes in our flag. Please include striped paper.
  3. A man in uniform is just plain handsome! Please include two of the following colors: Olive green, Gold, Navy blue,white.
  4. My husband is out to sea right now, please include something metal in your layout to represent the steel ship.
  5. Until they all come home, please include something yellow.
  6. "You're a grand old flag...and for ever in peace may you wave" please include something wavy.
  7. Please include the phrase "thank you" in your journaling.
 I used two kits from Britt-ish Designs ... Made in America and Just Plain Fun.

It was so moving to see the pride on others faces and hear in their voices as they said the Pledge and sang "God Bless America" at the American Adventure in Epcot during the Drum & Fife Corps. performance. Thank you to all the men and women serving in our armed forces ... God Bless you and your families!
