It's Memorial Day in the US and I'm feeling patriotic. We Americans honor our fallen heroes on Memorial Day in various ways. We may go to a cemetery to visit the grave of that special someone who didn't come back. Or we might go to a flag-waving parade. Or, maybe we gather those we love who are still with us together for a family reunion or picnic. At my house, I celebrate by watching all over again those old war movies. So far this week I've watched Von Ryan's Express, Gettysburg (and a 9-episode documentary about the Civil War), The Longest Day, and right now I am watching (when I finish this) We Were Soldiers and Young. I have more movies in my stash as well as access to both Netflix and Amazon Prime so I'll be feeling patriotic for several more days.
The kit this week was designed in red, white, and blue. There are no flags or gravestones or eagles. Just well-designed papers and elements in those colors. So, the kit could be used for a nautical page or any layout that works with red, white, or blue. We have LOTS of extras with this kit, so be sure not to miss any of them! You can find the kit, stackers, templates, and Word Art in the HotFlashDesigns store at www.scrapbird.com.
Let's take a look at the kit first.
Here are separate previews of the elements, papers, and alphas so you can get a closer look.
We also have stackers, templates, and word art to go with this kit. They're a darned good deal, just because we got overly enthusiastic in the creation process. Just keep in mind that you usually get 4 stackers, 4 templates, and 4 word arts per pack. We're treating you to an extra stacker AND 3 extra word arts. Here are the previews of those items:
I have a freebie for you with this kit. In fact I have 2 freebies for you, but one is on the team blog at hotflashdesignsbymarcia.blogspot.com. Here on my personal blog I am offering a free alpha that coordinates with everything you see above as well as the giftie on the team blog. Just in case you wondered if I love ya, LOL.............
And here's the link to claim the free alpha:
. When you stop to say thank you, it makes me feel like all the effort is worth it because I made somebody happy. Just sayin'....................... I hope you have a great holiday weekend. But, don't forget to take a moment to think about WHY we have this holiday and be grateful for the sacrifice of those who died, those who were wounded, and those who were left behind.
