SFTIO Design Team Reveal #2

Hey guys! TGIF! I am so glad it's Friday!!! Woot Woot! Today I wanted to share my second layout for 'Scrapbooking From The Inside Out' with you. If you did not read yesterday's post, you may want to scroll down a bit and check that out to see all about SFTIO.
This month, we are scrapping about 'courage.' Well, when I first sat down and started thinking about courage, one of the first things that popped into my mind was all of our brave men and women who are serving their country overseas. So I knew I wanted to scrap a page to express my gratitude to each and every one one of them. I started out with a base of some 'Whitewash' Core'dinations cardstock. I stamped on several stars to create my own patterned background. I then added a strip of embossed Core'dinations cardstock that I had sanded and cut out. I added some rhinestones to the center of a few of the stars for some added interest. I also incorporated some flowers from the kit and some alphas from my own scrappy stash. Last, I found a poem online and wrote it down on the journaling strips. Here is my page...'Home of the Brave.'
This poems reads:
"Courage is doing what is right without having to be told. Courage is manning up when you know you've done something wrong. Courage is having fear but still staying strong. Courage is facing adversity, but being able to over come it. Courage is leaving your family behind to defend the country you love. Courage is being a soldier. Thank you for this courage that lets us live free! May God bless you and come home safe to your family! -James Elston"

Thanks for stoppin' in today! I will have another layout to share with ya tomorrow! Yall have a fabulous day and take care!

Happy Scrappin'!!!
