Inking It Up Crazy Birthday Bash


Welcome to Kassidy's Month Long Birthday Bash!

Kassidy over at Inking It Up is celebrating her birthday for the month of June.  She has invited several guest to help design projects using her favorite items and themes.  At the end of the post, head on over to her blog for a chance to enter for giveaways.  :)

My theme for Kassidy's Birthday Bash is patriotic.  I've been wanting to create something using my Grandfather's Army photos from when he was in the Service during WWII.

My Grandfather: Edward Surufka.

The bottom left photo (2 men): my Grandfather's friend Slick-o and my Grandfather.
The bottom right photo (3 men): fellow Soldiers and my Grandfather.

I used a sponge to ink the saluting Soldier.


Recipe for "American Heros":
Cardstock - Bazzill Basics Paper
Designer Paper - Creative Imaginations
Stickers - Creative Imaginations "Patriotic"
Cartridges - Stand & Salute, Hannah Montana Font (A and H), Plantin School Book
Ink - Stampin Up "Chocolate Chip"
Markers - Sharpie Ultra Fine Point

Alright...head back on over to Kassidy's blog and enter in her giveaways; some pretty awesome items she has.  :)
