Remembering 9-11

These photos were taken the spring following the 9-11 attacks on our nation.  Although we didn't go into NY City, we drove to the Jersey side and took the ferry across NY Harbor.  The hands of the clock are positioned to 8:46 ~ when the first tower was hit.  


This layout is based on the beautiful sketch from the MCS Dec. Big Sketch Contest:


Items used in the creation of this page:
Basic Grey paper
Tim holtz clock face and hands
Deer hide strips from my friend, Brenda (her husband, Damen, is a hunter and the entire deer gets used.)
EK Success Border Punch
My trusty Husqvarna sewing machine
Metal word embellishments and chain from my stash
Chalk ink - to modify the color of the deer hide
Black marker to distress the metal embellishments
Title and journal font ~ Papyrus

I also entered this in the Creative Cowgirls Challenge #5 to use turquoise and brown.

Thanks for stopping by.

~ Blessings ~
