Freedom kit

I am so excited! I have learned how to curl ribbon!!! This was something I always wanted to learn. I found a tutorial that taught me how to do it, and from that tutorial I was also able to play around with it and learn how to make a bow too! I realized that I just used lots of exclamation points, but this is just so fun for me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Okay, onto the kit. I am so happy to live where I do and to enjoy the freedom that I have. I know I am so blessed to live in a country where I can make my own decisions and to have my own voice. I am so grateful for our troops serving our country. They are sacrificing their lives and it is something that I will always feel indebted to. I love the 4th of July because it means spending time with family and relaxing and just being grateful for so much! I hope you enjoy this kit and that you have a wonderful Independence Day.

SLKozul said...

one of the other posts said it wonderfully, you create beautiful kits because you are beautiful inside (and out too!).

I would love to learn how to curl ribbon too - so if you ever have 5 extra minutes I'd love to see you leave a link to the tutorial. It's probably something you need PSCS for, but I always like to see what I can apply to PSE.

Thought I'd share what I made with your kit. This was my husband, James. He passed away 21 May 2009 from a reaction to a medication while in cancer treatment for Leukemia he got from his tour in Iraq 03/04. Thank you for the kit. It was gorgeous! I used the flag to make the words "Freedom". Thanks again.
