Hi, Lisa, and thank you so much for your kind words. I'm so glad the chance to scrap brightened your day and that my little challenge inspired you to create something beautiful. I love your layout and that Shelli Gardner was your inspiration. I used to be a SU! rep and I have always been a fan of hers and of her company.

I recall being speechless and numb watching events unfold on the big-screen t.v. in my company's gym, surrounded by shocked and sobbing co-workers. I was, and still am, in San Diego, but the towers came down in my backyard. Six years ago, I was a newlywed, net even a year into our marriage. It was a time of hope and planning for us in our new life together and the events of that day just made us more determined than ever to love each other and grow our family. Today we have three beautiful children and while I'll never forget what happened six years ago today, I'll never stop dreaming and hoping and planning. No terrorist could take that from me.

Peace and love to you and yours.

I love your layouts and I am glad we where able to brighten your day yesterday.

We barried my Grandfater in Rochester, NY exactly 6 years ago yesterday (9/11) and all the out of town family had a very hard time getting back home. All the airlines did not resume flying for 4-5 days and all the rental car lots had no cars left. It took my brother and I 4 days to get back to Atlanta. But atleast we where safe.

Lisa you have created another beautiful piece.

9/11/01 is certainly a day I will remember forever. At that time my husband was a dialysis patient, and that day was his treatment day. I remembered that I did not want him to go for his treatment on that day, for fear of something happening. I called my parents and my in-laws at home just to make sure they were safe and sound.

Nonetheless, I took my husband for his treatment, and then I immediately went to a church who had its doors open and participated in an afternoon prayer service (this was not my church)but it was the closest church that i could get to. I remember vividly hugging people--complete strangers and telling each other that we have to keep the faith and be strong, and that America will never fall!

Going to that church that afternoon made me realize that I must also keep my faith strong in my husband's illness. Since then he has received a kidney transplant and is doing very well. It has been 6 years! ...and as far as this place I call my home...America is still standing strong and waving her beautiful colors!

God Bless America!
