Wordless Wednesday - #Remembrance Day

Yesterday our family spent the morning watching the Remembrance Day ceremonies.  The ceremonies were beautiful and moving and led to some great discussions with my kids.  My grandfather was a veteran and didn't like to speak about the war so Remembrance Day always makes me think of not only those we lost in service, but those who struggle after their service.  
When the television shared the displays at the Tower of London, I knew that I wanted to share some of the beautiful pictures in today's post.  All links under the photos will take you to the page the image was taken from.

Tell us what Remembrance Day means to you?

Spark Your Inspiration - Kaisercraft

Happy Friday!
Once again we are having some gorgeous weather...but I hear that will change by Monday :(
We received some brand new Kaisercraft lines in yesterday - Off The Wall, Close Up, and Hello Today - so thought I would go Pinterest searching for some awesome projects made from these three lines!

Happy Stamping - Bokeh Technique

Good morning!  
So did that Bokeh word throw you off?  
If you aren't familiar with it, you are probably more familiar with what it looks like in photos

Bokeh is (are?) the little dots of light in photos.  
Looking for new and fun techniques last week, I came across this quick and easy technique video by Understand Blue and thought I would share it with you.

How fun is that?!
