Mini Album ~ Boot Camp!

Hi Paper Lovers!  Happy Wednesday!!! 
Today I have a mini album to share with you that I made for my nephew.  You see last week he finished basic training with the Army!  I couldn't be more proud of him!  My youngest daughter was able to make the trip to Georgia, along with his family to see his graduation.  Maybe this isn't new, but each unit has their own Facebook page, and they would post and tag different soldiers.  So we got to sort of watch his training!  So I just pulled the pictures from Facebook, quickly put this together, and she was able to bring it with her.
It's amazing how with two of My Creative Time Stamp Sets, I was able to complete this in a small amount of time!!!

For the most part I used My Creative Time's newest stamp and die set call "Just Simply Live"!


 
Who would of thought that these sentiments could be used for military pictures!!!




I also used "Happy Homecoming" stamp set.

 
Yep, that's right, he decided to be a lifer!!!


 
recipe:
Me and My Big Ideas
K & Co
 
I have to say it was very liberating to just let go and not worry so much about design and just "smash" it together!!!  And using the newest set from My Creative Time made is simple and fun!!!!
 
I'll be back on Friday with a fun "candy card"!
 
Enjoy!

THIS IS AMAZING LIZ!!!! OMGosh!!! I am so going to scraplift you! My bestie's son graduated basic training, army, in March. I followed his page on FB too, but there weren't to many photos of him. Really though, it won't matter b/c he knows the people in the photos. :) We have a ton from when he graduated, so I will use some of those too.
