Lest We Forget

April 25, 2020

Today is Anzac Day in Australia.  This is a day where people attend Anzac Day Dawn Services and then the traditional Anzac Day March where we can honour past and present members of the Army, Navy and Air Force.  This year my Grandson was going to march with his Air Force Cadet Squadron at the big march in Brisbane City.  However, because of COVID-19 we are not having any Dawn Services or Marches.  This is kind of sad for the Veterans, especially those who would have marched for the last time this year.  So this year we will be doing what the RSL (Returned Services League) has called on everyone to do – stand at the end of our driveway at dawn, light candles, sing the National Anthem and listen to the Last Post.  I found a photo of my Grandfather in his Army Uniform taken during WWII and thought it would be appropriate for today’s share.  I used a 12″ x 12″ Whisper White page as the base card.  I cut a circle from a piece of cardboard that comes with our Designer Series Paper.  I tore sheets of Mossy Meadow card into strips and wrapped the cardboard.  Kind of messy but kind of just right.  I cut the solid poppies from Poppy Parade card and the detailed overlays from Real Red card using the Poppy Moments Dies.  The flower centres are cut from Basic Black card.  I also cut some leaves from Old Olive card using the Poppy Moments Dies.  I attached the flowers and the leaves together and added them to my “wreath”.  I attached the “wreath” to the Whisper White page.  I attached my photo to Basic Black card and placed it inside the “wreath”.  I attached a strip of Whisper White card to a slightly wider strip of Real Red card across the bottom of the page.  I cut the letters from Basic Black card using the retired Little Letters Dies.

I am really happy with this page.  I am going to create a co-ordinating page with the details of my Grandfather’s War Service so my grandchildren will know a bit more of his story.
