Freedom Scrapbook Page

Here's today's scrapbook page!

This is our son, James... always "Jimmy" to me.

He is an Army Man. He came home a few months ago for a short visit. During that time my husband's, Tom's, work was participating in a charity event called "Pull-A-Plane."

Work groups from across the area signed up a team of 20 individuals (I think that' s how many were on the team) to pull a Fed Ex play with a rope. They were timed how fast they could reach the yellow line (sorry, forgot what the distance was they had to pull it).

So Jimmy wears this shirt, "FREEDOM". I love it!

The scrapbook says at the top, "ARMY MAN... Here's James at Tom's Company's "Pull-a-Plane" event. Even when Jimmy is home visiting, he has our FREEDOM on his mind! That's our boy! I mean, Man!

The bottom says, "SKUNKING: The art of sniffing out danger. Jimmy knows hot to sniff out danger... and eliminate it!

Yes, I made the definition up, but hey, I had to do something to tie in the skunk on the page... which is just too cute from DCWV The Green Stack. And yes, I HAD to add googly eyes to him. Every opportunity I get to use googly eyes.... I'm gonna use 'em! Love 'em!

The wonderful black and dark blue textured paper is from LISA. We traded some Cricut cuts for some Cuddlebug papers. I wish I had a Cuddlebug! Check out Lisa's blog by clicking here.
There's a GREAT strawberry card on her post today. :)

Until next time... hugs!
Janis
