Where Where You?
"Where were you when the world stopped turning on that September day...And I remember this from when I was young...Faith, hope and love are some good things He gave us...And the greatest is love..." ~ Lyrics from "Where Where You When the World Stopped Turning" by Alan Jackson
Fear. Sadness. The unknown. I remember exactly where I was and what I was doing ten years ago today. I remember exactly what I felt the days to follow. And I remember the feeling I had the first time I heard the song above, as it summed up the entire experience for me. I remember. I'll never forget.
So I'm confident today will end with much better memories. Thank you to the past heroes that perished, the heroes who helped then and now, and the future heroes that will continue to make the world a safe place.
And today, I'm playing along with a number of challenge, they all helped define the design of one of my favorite cards to date!
The Lawnscaping Challenge: Embossing Extravaganza: I pulled out just about every embossing folder I had to add texture to Lawn Fawn's Bannerific banners and PTI's clouds, as well as the background "sky."
Artful Delight's Sketch Challenge: Its always fun for me to confirm a layout sketch to a card sketch.
