Special Commemoration Blog Hop

For this week's City Crafter Chalenge go Here

Hi Friends! Today is a day of remembrance, and a time to thank all of those who have served our country. Past, present and future, the words ‘thank you’ don't seem to be enough. Many people have given so much of themselves, to work tirelessly to preserve our freedom and protect our country.
Today on 9/11 we take a moment to remember those who lost their lives that tragic day, and the families they left behind. We take another moment to honor all of the individuals who helped that day, and who are, or who have served our country. Today we remember.

In honor of all these individuals and their families My Time Made Easy ™ LLC and Paper Sweeties have organized a Blog Hop with *NEW* products & stamps,  projects to inspire you to create gifts for our Troops, or that special someone!
Please see what all the following designers have made using the *NEW* products:
·Lauren Meader – owner My Time Made Easy
Debbie Marcinkiewicz – owner Paper Sweeties
Additional designers:

Now you are probably excited to see what was released in honor of this special occasion!

*NEW* at Paper Sweeties in September and available for a ‘special pre-release’ on 9/11 is an adorable boy doll stamp named ‘Jake’! Jake measures approximately 3 ½” tall and is the perfect companion for the Sweeties girl stamps – Abigail, Emma and Sophie! Jake has several outfits available this month – one of which is the cutest soldier ‘dress’ uniform complete with a medal of honor, hat and six heartfelt sentiments! Jake was designed at the request of a good friend who is very involved with the Operation Write Home organization because she has a brother serving overseas in the armed forces! Each Sweeties stamp set retails for $10. Paper Sweeties full September release launches 9/15.
 My card features "Jake" who will be available on 9/15 !! He is a wonderful stamp and Debbie has designed all kinds of adorable outfits to go with him!!!!

Tough Tank Pretty Packaging Template

This was designed at the request of, and in the honor of Lauren’s brother, Craig, who served many years in the U.S. Army! He wanted a realistic version of the "real deal" to honor his time spent serving our country! Note: The top of the tank rotates 360 degrees, and comes off the tank, so you can package all sorts of gift items inside the tank.
