Hello everyone and Happy Memorial Day. I want to express my sincere gratitude and joy for the life we live today as I recognize that it was provided by the sacrifices of others. While we celebrate our freedom with family and friends, let's not forget to honor those who served our nation and are no longer with us.💗
I hope you have a wonderful day and for all the photos you'll take ... I have a fun new project for you. It's a mini album called "Land That I Love" and I've added the acrylic album and the instructions for it to my shop today so you can recreate it! (Links below.)
I designed this new 6"x6" album out of blue acrylic and added a star shaped window to the front cover. It has 12 white cardstock pages (6 double-sided) & includes 4 flippies, 2 fold-out pages, 1 pocket & space for 20 photos.
I chose Doodlebug's, Land That I Love Collection to design the album with. It's filled with vibrant Americana colors, fun icons and pattern papers with stars, stripes, hearts, dots, and plaids. I love this one.
I created this project for Memorial Day but, it could also be used for photos from the 4th of July. ... Just thinkin' ahead!
And ... my albums always have a super useful pocket. Perfect for saving small flags or ribbons, programs, tickets, journaling cards, stickers, notes, patches or extra photos.
This little scrapbook makes a fun weekend project and would be great for any Memorial Day activity. Here are a few ideas ...
- Hang the American Flag outside your home
- Attend a Memorial Day Parade
- Visit a National Park, go hiking and enjoy a beautiful view of America
- Have a backyard BBQ and invite friends
- Do something kind for a family of a fallen soldier
- Enjoy a picnic on the beach
- Attend a Memorial Day Ceremony
- Create some fun patriotic chalk art on the sidewalk with the kiddos
- Put together care packages for soldiers
- Take flowers to a soldier's grave
- Have a movie night, make popcorn & watch something patriotic
- Visit an ice cream parlor and indulge in a red, white and blueberry treat
No matter what your plans are today, let's try to honor The National Moment of Remembrance. This is an annual event that asks Americans, wherever they are at 3:00 p.m. local time on Memorial Day, to pause for a duration of one minute to remember those who have died in military service to the United States.
Thanks for stopping by the blog. Hope you enjoy your day! 🇺🇸💗
