USS Arizona

Here's a page I did for our Hawaiian honeymoon album. We got married in Hawaii just about 8 years ago and I'm still working on that album. At the rate I'm going I'll never finish, we took over 600 photos and those don't include our wedding photos. At least I got all the wedding photos scrapped! This page is about Pearl Harbor. I can't believe all the emotions the USS Arizona brought out. There were probably 50-75 people out on the memorial with us and it was completely silent. No one spoke the whole time we were there. Some people threw leis in the water that actually brought tears to my eyes. And seeing the oil still leaking from the ship......a very moving site to see.

This is for the 8/11 Got Talent Challenge at My Scraps & More. You had to get messy and not use any tools on your background and you had to fussy cut at least 3 embellies. I took gesso and spread it around my paper with my fingers and then added some Blingz paint with my fingers. I used some Perfect Pearls mist and let it drip down along the bottom of the page and I fussy cut all the stars. I kept this kinda simple because I wanted the photos to speak for themselves.
