Phenomenal!! You know the old saying about pictures speaking louder than words? Well this LO really SPEAKS!! Starting with that awesome photo, then the addition of the great Americana supplies, adding your great blending, and topping it off with the wonderful quote. This LO brings tears to one’s eyes!

 

My heart goes out to all of our soldiers. So many young men and their families just starting out or having a child—torn apart for indefinite periods of time into such hostile environments. And so many of them who NEVER imagined that they would be called up for this type of duty . . .

You have created such a heartfelt and beautiful layout. Excellent blending work on the photo. Your choice of papers and embellishments added the perfect patriotic theme to the layout. Well done. How blessed your brother and sister-in-law are to have such strong relationship, one that will withstand the test of time apart. I am grateful that we have patriots like your brother that serve our country. What an honor that he is your brother. Sandy

So pretty - reminds me of the times I had to send my sweetie off "over there". It is something that has to be done, & I pray for his safe return & thank him for his service to our country. The hardest thing I think I've ever had to do is watch him walk away. I feel for her & they will be in my prayers.

A very moving treatment of a very special photo.

Thank both of them for their service. As they say, the toughtest job is to be an Army spouse. May angels of protection watch over him during his deployment.

This is absolutely perfect. Prayers for you all while he is away. My son just returned from Afghanistan a few days ago and he and his wife are expecting their first baby in October.

 

Please thank him for his service to our country.
