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
