My father-in-law served in the Marines and was stationed in Germany in the 1960's.  My husband recently retouched a bunch of family photos and I printed them up.  I used 3 of the military pictures on this layout along with paper and embellishments from Authentique's Glory collection.  I misted the brown kraft paper with some red Smooch Spritz and even masked some stars.  I used sketch #80 from Sketches in Thyme:

I am also entering this page in the Go Fish challenge #19 to create something patriotic and
Unique Crafters Challenge #5 -- Patriotic
