Civil War Remembrance

So on Memorial Day we chose to attend Civil War Remembrance Days at Greenfield Village and honor those that gave their lives to uphold their beliefs. It doesn't matter which side you chose, they were all Americans. Plus we have a HUGE Civil War buff in our house so we kinda had to go. It was pretty cool and in the end he got to speak with the guys in the Re-enactment group he wants to join. He was one happy kid all day long. Here are just a few of the photos I took that day in a one page layout.

 We watched several of the reenactments and spoke with many of the re-enactors. Seriously my child proclaimed at the end of a long (7 hrs) hot (90 degrees) day that we were the best parents ever. We said "see we do do what you want to do, sometimes."

The little Union soldier bear is from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs- Civil War Bear.  I started with a sketch from Sketch Support and add to it some Basic Gray paper. It had the right vintage look. Here's a close up of the bear and title:

This was  a quick fun layout to create. Happy Crafting!!
