I want to thank everyone for all the wonderful comments and feedback I have received so was very uplifting and gave me huge smiles! I also was very touched to hear about many stories of your loved ones whom have also passed on and I am just so glad that I could give you a little inspiration in helping you with your wonderful tribute for them. Today I have another give honor to those who serve and put their lives on the line for our freedom and Country. I wanted to honor a close friend that I have known since Junior High School that is serving our Country right now in the Military Branch of the Army. He has been deployed three times in front-line Infantry and is home safely...thank the LORD! I haven't had the chance to do any military layouts before so this was a treat and such an honor to create =D

  5. You did a fantastic job with this layout!! I have been struggling with making an album for my brother and sister in law who both were over in Iraq a few years ago. Once you do so many military pages... it gets tough... at least it is for me. I'm so used to making cutesy/pretty layouts... not manly ones. I love how yours turned out!! I might have to steal your idea for a lo in my brothers album! Thanks for sharing your layouts with us!
