In Honor


I participated in Kelly Jo's Challenge. Her challenge this week was in honor of a military friend that just got home from serving in Iraq. I thought how perfect, I have a brother in law that I'm very proud of that serves in the Army National Guard and is a wonderful husband and family man to my sister and nephew. Second but certainly not last is my girl April. She has been a wonderful, supportive military wife to her high school sweetheart for many years. Rodney is a fire fighter in the Air Force. I'm so very proud of all of them and loved taking this challenge.
Second you know how much I LOVE sketch challenges so I hopped over to 2 Sketches 4 You to play along with this weeks sketch.
