Remeberance Day at lasting memories

To all of my US followers thank you for joining me on Veterans Day
 for the latest Lasting memories challenge,"Remembrance Day"

What exactly is remembrance day?
There are so many possibilities.  Remembering the sacrifices of those before us. 
Both of my Grandfathers, Father and  Father in law served in the military as well as my husband so
 Veterans day has a special and deeper meaning for me.
It could be
Remembering those that have past and no longer with us

The design team at lasting memories has simplified it to be a LO about some one special.
That is in your thoughts and on your heart.

I did a layout of my father's sister who died in infancy.
Mary Lynn Tencza lived for only two days and
all I have is her hospital photo and her Baptismal record from Providence Hospital.

The Baptismal record was damaged in several spots, so I tried to hide it with the flowers in the upper left corner and the fussy cut card stock sticker in the upper right

I'm featuring another of the Cedar Chest Design digi stamps  " Maggie with bird house"

I cut away the bird house so it looks more like a guardian angle waving goodbye

There's also an optional sketch this week if you need some extra inspiration
Heather from Scrapy Sketches

Hope you've been inspired to join us this week and
don't forget to link up for our monthly prize.  The more you play the more chances to win.  We are also  looking for a December guest designer.  If you'd like a chance just add GDT after your name when you link it up.

After working on another layout I found some vintage gift tags in my stash

Here's another look at the same layout

I think the angel is a more fitting embellishment for the LO


  1. Very delicate LO and the coloring of your digi is great!

  2. This is beautifully soft LO! Very fitting for the photo!! Love it Haven, beautiful!
