Fort Hood, Texas

We're headed there later this month....being re-stationed because my husband is in the Army....as many of you know. We just seen on the news about the U.S. Army Major who shot, killed (12) and wounded (31) fellow soldiers today. This is HUGE! It makes me get goose bumps just thinking about the whole incident. The base is supposedly on lock down. No one can come in or out. My hubby has been texting his friend who is stationed there now. Goosebumps I tell you! They are in need of blood donors and if any of you are in the area I hope you are able to help.

Despite that crazy news it also happens to be my hubby's birthday today and with all that has happened I am just thankful that he's home and safe. I went on nfl.com and custom made him a Dallas Cowboys shirt. He's been saying how much he's wanted one after he seen the commercial for them.

I also reflected upon "us" in some recent scrapbooking layouts that I did recently. I can share one with you today. It says: "....February, March, April, May....Baby I love you more & more each and everyday."
I did this for the Inspired Blueprints Sketch #35 that is going on right now. Winner gets a Gift Certificate to E.A.D. Designs. Check out the E.A.D. Designs vinyl rubon I included on the top right corner of my photo. I flanked it with a 7gypsies brad. These vinyl rubons are the coolest! If you haven't tried them, now's the time! Here's the IBP Sketch that your provided for the challenge. Inpiring eh?

Here are some close-up shots.

Supplies Used- Cardstock: Bazzill Basics; Patterned Paper: 7Gypsies, Scenic Route; Flowers: Prima Marketing Inc.; Embellishments: 7Gypsies; RubOn: E.A.D. Designs Vinyl Art; Alphas: American Crafts Thickers.Hope you all stay safe this evening. God Bless you! Keep these people in your prayers today.
