    Happy Memorial Day!

    Hi everyone and Happy Memorial day! Take a moment today to say a little prayer of thanks for those who have and still do serve in the armed forces.

    Some of you have noticed and or asked about my new avatar. There's a story behind it and I'll share it with you. See, I'm supposed to have a photo in the DBD shop so people can associate me with a face but I don't have any since I chopped off my foot of hair. Then my buddy Barb (aka Mrs. Miles) had these neat hair accessoires on her blog that I wanted to try out. So while I was making the advertisement for the memorial day sale (still going today 35% off) I decides to give myself some blue hair and added the cool red shades, also by Barb. It looked so patriotic, so I threw in the flag behind me Figure it'll be good for at least thru July if not longer. I am proud to be an American, I served 4 years in the Navy and love to live here. So this became my photo for the shop and I put it up here. It's cute and makes me smile- I hope it does for you too.

    Okay, since today is Memorial Day I made this little mini kit for you Hope you like it!
    Sorry, this is no longer available.

    Happy Scrapping Everyone!

    Thank you so much! As the wife of a retired USAF man & the mother of a US Marine currently serving in Iraq, I can always use patriotic kits. It means so much to know that other care about the troops.
