Another photo from our week away in Gt. Yarmouth in July.

We Will Remember

Sharon and I took the children to the Tower of London to see the Poppies. There were 888, for each of the British and Commonwealth servicemen killed in the conflict. It was amazing and very moving.

I am entering this layout in the Scrap & Play #13. The criteria was to include something on your layout which starts with each letter of THANKFUL. 
I think this layout says it all.

T - Three photos
H - Handmade paper
A - Arrow
N - Numbers
K - Knots (red ribbon knotted over black on bottom photo)
F - Flowers
U - Upper case alphas
L - Layers

The challenge closes at the end of the month so loads of time to join in!
