Ok I just wanted to make a quick post! I am so proud to be an American! I am so impressed with all the people getting together today! Everyone was out in the streets to show there excitment for the fact that we are not a Nation that will back down for our FREEDOM!! I have posted lots of things today on facebook! I wanted to share them all here just to have as a reminder!!

Thanks to the brave soldiers that found and took care of the horrible man!! Thanks for your wonderful service of justice!

A HUGE THANK YOU to our military, who have sacrificed, died, suffered, and worked hard, to fight people like Osama Bin Laden. YOU are the ones we thank. YOU are the ones who deserve ALL CREDIT. Thank a soldier for bringing due justice for those lost on 9/11 and all the victims around the world who suffered from his commands. Copy and paste if you agree..


May 1, 2011 Earlier this evening, President Obama called to inform me that American forces killed Osama bin Laden, the leader of the al Qaeda network that attacked America on September 11, 2001. I congratulated him and the men and women of our military... and intelligence communities who devoted their lives to this mission. They have our everlasting gratitude. This momentous achievement marks a victory for America, for people who seek peace around the world, and for all those who lost loved ones on September 11, 2001. The fight against terror goes on, but tonight America has sent an unmistakable message: No matter how long it takes, justice will be done.
"I've never wished a man dead, but I have read some obituaries with great pleasure." - Mark Twain

Just a interesting fact that I found on Twitter!
Bin Laden's death was announced on May 1st, 2011. Hitler's death was announced on May 1st, 1945.

Yes folks, it was an American military man that brought about victory in the killing of Bin Laden. A military person who, just a few short weeks ago, President Obama AND Congress debated about whether or not to PAY. I don't know this hero personally but, I bet he would've done it for, glad he didn't have to!

I love this long list of posts from my Facebook page!!

God Bless America!!

Beginning of a layout!

This is the base of a layout I did! I have lots of these. I am not sure what to do with them. But I thought I would show everyone the based of my About me page from the Shop Remember When retreat last year!

To let yall know how I made this. I used my tattered angel screen and gesso first. Then I let it dry, it needs to dry completely before you do anything else with it. I then sprayed tattered angel chalk and glimmer mist and patted dry. Then you have the base of the layout!

I hope everyone enjoys!
