Veterans Day Honor Flight Layout
This past Tuesday night Luke ranked up in Civil Air Patrol. We weren't sure he was going to make it. He had passed the physical fitness portion and the test, but had to improve his marks on drill. I am thankful that something is difficult for him. He does really well with his grades being naturally smart so it's nice when he has to work at something a bit. Means more to him I think.
The day he participated in the Twin Tiers Honor Flight was also difficult. He had to be at the airport at 5:30 am and in blues so it was quite an early start! Then he rode to Ithaca with CAP for training that ran well into the afternoon. Came home for a snack and shower and was back to the airport to welcome the Veterans back in from their day trip to Washington DC. The entire day made me think of my Grandpa Ham who flew in WWII. I wish he had been around to see Luke & go to DC.
My favorite part of this page are the leaves with the stars. Some left over glitter from the CAP Christmas party found it's way onto their leaves! Dig those roses too. I fussy cut that plane logo after snagging it on-line and printing it on photo paper. Makes me happy for a title!
I know that scallopy shape of the actual page isn't trendy anymore, but it reminded me on a medal and I thought it worked well with the red, white and blue. Inked up edges the edges and added some glitter!
