God Bless America

I was in my car when I first heard the news on the radio. I immediately turned around, went home and turned on the TV in time to watch the second plane hit the second tower. It was SO hard to believe this was actually happening.
The images of 9-11 are burned, forever, in my mind and heart. Shock. Disbelief. Shock again. Praying. Praying. Praying. God help those people. Lord have mercy. Shock after Shock.
Truly 9-11 was another turning point for America. We ALL came together. We turned to God - but didn't stay there. Good Lord, deliver us.

This is a scrapbook page I did for my daughter who lived in Texas on 9-11. Her boys, then 3 and 5 held up the days newspaper...which I still have along with Magazines and 1st anniversary publications.

Share your 9/11 rememberances in the 'comments'.

FREE Candy Corn Paper Piecing Pattern

Candy Corn speaks of Fall, Halloween, and Thanksgiving. I have designed a paper pieced Candy Corn for you to use on your Scrapbook pages, Cards or Tags.
The top piece (white) slightly overlaps the middle piece (yellow). The bottom piece (orange) slightly overlaps the middle piece.
The center oval can be cut out of the middle piece or you can use it as a pattern to cut out your photo, then glue to the middle secion.
I have brushed the edges of each piece with Distress Ink but it could be highlighted with chalk.
I used the smaller Candy Corn for the Card and the Tag.
