My Time Made Easy Pretty Palette # 26




Hello blogging friends!

In honor of 9/11 we have used the colors of the American Flag !!! A sad occasion, but a tribute to those who were “first responders” and to all of the courageous men and women who were there to help!! To all of those who lost their lives and to their families! To the USA!

I am honored to have the opportunity to have digital examples from MTME to show my tribute. In this creation, I used Sentimental Occasions Labels digital image “Prayers.” The digital papers are from My Time Made Easy “Seawater Diamond Silent Night” and “Neopolitan Diamond Candied Apple.” You have got to admit that these papers are perfect for this occasion. MTME has the BEST digi papers ever. The greatest thing about them is you can use them over and over again....I already have such a stash...No more spending money on DP...because you have it all here at MTME!

I also added a Wilton Doily and some 7/8” crochet lace from Sharon's Stamp Simply Store with 1/8” velvet red ribbon and red Kaiser Craft Rhinestones, also from Sharon’s store ! The ribbon was tied with Bow Easy and I added another red rhinestone to the center. Please click on the pic for a better look.

I spent my Saturday with my sister, Annie...and we went shopping and out to eat lunch...What a blessing to have her in my life...I will never take that crazy woman for granted. She is, and will always be my best friend! We have so much fun when we are together. It is not her fault that she is a "nut case!" So I just go along with her antics and enjoy...!

I hope your weekend is a great one and your week ahead is the best! Thank you for your visit and I wish you all the best for great health and happiness!
