Memorial Day!

"Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation's service. There are many stories as to its actual beginnings, with over two dozen cities and towns laying claim to being the birthplace of Memorial Day. There is also evidence that organized women's groups in the South were decorating graves before the end of the Civil War..."

Today is Memorial Day Challenge over at PaperCraftingWorld

I created a layout to use for pictures that we will take of us having a
Memorial Day BBQ at my house.
 I distress the edges of my pattern paper.
 Did lots of stitching here and there.  I will place pictures later in the week.
 For the star's how to see my post for Thursday the 19th of May.
 Used lots of dimensional foam.
Here you can see that I had forgotten to paint/draw their eyes and mouth and now I did and took this picture after I had already taken my other pictures and posted... and why did I touch my desing with my dirty full of ink and glue hands and messed up his nose?? Don't you just love it when that happens!!?
Printed the journal piece with my Imagine and Imagine More Cards and punched with an EK punch.
The stars are punched with a Marvy Uchida punch.
All PP is from K&Co Americana Collection
My cutting file is from Melin from PaperCraftingWorld!
I used PageMaps to guide me.

There is still time to comment on my previous posting for a chance at winning the file I used.
