This is my latest creation for Red Carpet Studio.  The challenge this time was the movie Saving Private Ryan in honor of Memorial Day.  We were fortunate to have Bugaboo Digi Stamps donate an image of our choice to create our project.  When I saw this image, I instantly thought of a picture I took of my daughter in Washington DC six years ago.  We were standing at the Vietnam Wall.  She was reading all the names, asking questions about the war....She would bend down and read the letters along the bottom of the wall....It was heart wrenching reading what loved ones wrote to their family members who made the ultimate sacrifice.  I stood back for a moment and took this picture of her studying the names so intently.  I loved how her image was reflected in the black marble.  Even though Saving Private Ryan was a story about World War II, I was so moved by this picture, I felt it perfectly commemorated the movie & Memorial Day

This is my latest layout for Child's Play Challenge.  The inspiration behind this challenge was the cartoon classic Scooby Doo.  When I saw this was the challenge, I instantly thought of my daughter's Halloween costume last Fall.  She decided she wanted to be a Hippie girl.  She got this adorable dress (which I thought looked like something Daphne on Scooby Doo wore), go-go boots, big sunglasses....and it rained like crazy all night on trick or treat.....There were some brave kids out on Halloween night; my child was not one of them....So she dressed up to pass out candy.  Just glad I got one good shot of her outfit.  Gotta love Mother Nature!
