Memorial Day 2013

I thought about starting the post with Happy Memorial Day, but then this day isn't really about celebrating, at least to me.  Today is about honoring those that men and women that gave their lives to protect our freedoms.  We decorate their graves and memorials.  Of course there are also parades, concerts and cook-outs.  But I do think it is important to remember why we have this day off.  We should remember our honored dead!

To honor these men and women I created a special red, white and blue design.

I started with two coats of Milani White on the Spot.


I added some red stripes using Nailtiques Moscow and W107.


Lastly I added stars using Barry M Blue Plum and PUEEN44.



I love how the stripes look like they are waving in the background!

Thanks to the men and women who have shown bravery and courage defending the rights and freedoms of my country and others.
