Remembering and Honoring 911

I am sure all of us will never forget the date 9-11.  Where we were and what we were doing when we heard the news of the Twin Towers and the aftermath will never be forgotten.  So hard to believe it has been 10 years.  For the challenge this week we were to make something to Remember and honor 9-11.  Being that my husband is a retired fireman I chose this memorable picture as the centerpiece of my layout.  I used K and Company paper from a stack I had left at 4th of July.  The ribbon  and decal is from Michaels.  I used Stand and Salute to cut out the USA flag.  I then used the wide ribbon cut at different lengths to highlight the picture.  The small ribbon I made awareness ribbons and used a red and blue star brad in the center.  I have bunch of the ribbon left so am making ribbons for my family to wear in memory.  I used a LP frame I had on hand to frame the layout.  When I showed it to my husband he teared up and said he thought it was a great memorial.  
With my layout I would like to send out a prayer for all those who lost loved ones that day.  I would like to offer up a big thank you to the fire fighters and police officers who lost their lives trying to save others.  Also a big thank you to all the men and women who have served their country to keep our nation free.  Please come back all week and see what the other designers have made to honor and remember 9-11.
