Remembering . . .

Good morning and Happy Memorial Day! I want to take time to say thank you to any and all veterans out there who have served or are serving our country, protecting our freedoms! What a privilege to live in this great country!!

I'm sure that you've heard the news about the Stampin' Out Alzheimer's event going on today coordinated by Jen Tapler. I'm excited to tell you that Kitchen Sink Stamps has joined the effort and is sponsoring a challenge today on the Stampin' Out Alzheimer's site. Maria herself issued the challenge, here's a bit about it:

With Alzheimer's effecting a person's memory and this Monday being Memorial Day, I thought a fitting challenge would be remembering those who've touch our hearts.

kss4soa Challenge:

"Remembering someone you love" by creating a card, project or scrapbook page ...

  • remembering a loved one who is far away
  • remembering someone you love depicted at a younger age
  • in memory of someone you love
It is not necessary to use Kitchen Sink Stamps to enter this challenge ... but if you would like to, that would be lovely too. :D Deadline for the challenge is May 31 midnight EST. Then one lucky number will be chosen by a random generated number to win ..... "Everything but the Kitchen Sink" - KSS Mystery Box. This box will contain at least one KS stamp set... plus inks, stamping blocks, embellishments, etc. (all things from Kitchen Sink Stamps). Total value will be at least $ 75.00 it could be more ... it's all part of the mystery! :D.

When uploading your creation to the SOA gallery, please be sure to tag your creations with
kss4soa so we are sure to include your entry.

I don't scrapbook that much anymore. . .there just doesn't seem to be time . . . but I decided to make a 6x6 page using a photograph I have of my Dad and his parents when he graduated from college. My dad was the baby of his family so my grandparents both died when I was quite young. I remember them only in small vague snippets but I treasure the few pictures that I have of them.

For this layout I used 3 Step Graduation set from Kitchen Sink stamps and this layout I found from Erika Martin on the stampTV site.

Please head over to the Kitchen Sink Stamps blog to view the other Crew member's creations!! And don't forget to play along with the KSS Challenge - you could WIN but most of all, you'll be supporting a fabulous cause!! :)
