A Hero's Welcome!

Good day everyone!

Alright so this week went a little smoother than the last except for my computer that I do all my embroidery work on stopped working.  I have a friend working on it right now in hopes that he can get up and working again.  If not, I do have my designing computer but then I have to run up and down the stairs when I want to fix details.  Guess that is better than not having any computer at all... Right?!?!

Anyway, I made it to the 3rd round of the 2nd Chance Challenge and am very proud of what I made this week.  We were given a basic group of colors (browns/greys), given the theme "Evening News" and were told to add a couple colors, use no CU and create 4 papers/10 elements.  Seeing that around here the evening news is filled with homecoming, I decided to do a military homecoming mini (which I will definately put into a full kit).  It is definately not like the other entries seeing its very specific but I really am proud of my work.  I changed the elements many times before I came up with some that I thought worked well together.  I have included 4 papers, 1 word art, 2 layered buttons, 1 banner, 1 child reaching, 1 flag on pole, 1 frame, 1 tag, 1 staple and a grouping confetti.  I hope you like it as much as I enjoyed making it.  I have also created a second word art to go with the kit that I am giving you.... seeing that mommies are in the military too.  Would love to hear what you think and see what you make with it!
