About Me

My Photo
I would classify myself as an artist. It took me a while to finally accept that monicker, but that's what I am; AN ARTIST!!! I have a wonderful hubs that supports my "talents" in most all avenues, except maybe when the credit card bill comes in the mail...LOL And I have 4 great kids and 5 beautiful grandchildren that I love to pieces. Come on by and sit a spell and "STAMP 'TIL YA CRAMP!!! & "CROP 'TIL YA DROP!!!"

God bless America.....

This is a repost of a scrapbook page I did a while back.  This is my dad; he served in WWII (Army) and took part of the Battle of Normandy.  He was overseas (as a very young man) for almost 5 yrs.  He told my brother once that when he saw the Statue of Liberty he fell to his knees on the ship's deck and cried because he didn't think he would ever see 'home' again.  
This is one of my favorite pages I have done, ever!!!!!  I only wished that I had his medals/awards, but we had a house fire in 1969 and we lost everything.  But I recently found out that you can order repilcas ....not quite the same but close enough.

Until later, AMERICANS......Gotta split......TFL!!!!!
