OWH Memorial Weekend Blog Hop

Good morning everyone, hope it's the start of a beautiful weekend.  The Anderegg Family has a new "family" physician, Dr. Tyler Anderegg! Along with becoming a doctor, he was promoted to the rank of Captain.  Our family is so grateful to those who've helped to support and shape our son into the young man that he is.  We cannot say thank you enough to those folks as well as to the young men and women serving in our military, making accomplishments like this possible.  Thank you!

I'm a proud member of Operation Write Home, a non-profit group who makes blank greeting cards for our military heroes to send back home to their loved ones.  This weekend we celebrate and thank those who serve and protect!


DP:  Memory Keepers "Patriotic Alphabet"

Embossing Folder:  Paper Studio Mini Stars

  3. I like the stars. Hmmm, how can I recreate this without star dies? I think I'll look at my cricut cartridges to see if I have any with stars.

    I like all the layers as they make everything "pop." The composition is beautiful.
