This is a layout of my sister and my brother in law that was KIA in OCT 04. I did this for the April Journaling Challenge and the Quote Challenge.

The journaling reads...
October 4, 2006 the world changed. My brother-in-law, Edward M. Garvin was killed in action in Anbar Provice, Iraq. At the age of 19. At 20 years old my sister Melissa lost her best friend, her soul mate, her husband. My sister & brother-in-law were life long friends, meeting in the 2nd grade and attached at the hip. My sister has such strength that amazes me and makes me so very (PROUD)! My brother-in-law made the ultimate sacrifice for our country, for our children, for our freedom. The families of these fallen Hero's know all too well that FREEDOM ISN'T FREE!

Most would think my sister sits home crying and that is so far from the truth! Since my brother-in-laws passing my sister has raised over 18,000 in which she auctioned off her wedding dress to raise money for the BOY SCOUTS, an organization Eddy was very involved in to send underprivileged boys to boy scout camp for the summer. We have marched in parades and Melissa has recently joined the Soldiers Angels to help families of fallen soldiers. I am so PROUD of her!

Quote under the circle reads
"And I'm proud to be an American, where at least I know I'm Free. and I won't forget the men who died and gave that right to me" Lee Greenwood. (the d is hidden behind the sticker because of the transparency. It was hard to journal because The circle and the quote were on the bazzill and I had to match up where the transparency had words or the stickers I put on it.

I used both of the twists for the Proud challenge. I used a transparency paper and I also used a hidden tag. Behind the tag with the star on it reads - Parris Island, SC Pictured my sister and brother-in-law at his Marine Corp boot camp graduation.
