Happy Memorial Day Weekend

I thought this weekend would be a good time to revisit one of the first digital collages I created in honor of September 11th - Patriotic to the Core. I hunted for months for a flag that was a little tattered, but still flying free. I can't remember how many apples I made people eat looking for the core shape I wanted...but it was worth it because this piece means so much to me. It is my way of saying thank you.

Thank you to all the brave men and women who defended my freedom in years past and those who are still defending it today. Thank you to all that sacrificed their lives and the families that lost someone they loved.

May your weekend be blessed with memories of love and laughter and I hope you create many new memories during your picnics and cookouts, as well.
