9/11 We Remember

Today is a day of remembrance, and a time to thank all of those who have served our country. Past and present, and future, the word thank you doesn't seem to be enough. Many people have given so much of themselves, working tirelessly to preserve our freedom and protect our country.

Today on 9/11 we take a moment to remember those at the World Trade Center NY in 2001, who lost their lives that day, and the families they left behind. We take another moment to honor all of the individuals who helped that day, and who are, or who have served our country. Today we remember.

In honor of all these individuals and their families My Time Made Easy ™ LLC and Paper Sweeties has organized a Blog Hop with *NEW* products & projects to inspire you to create gifts for our Troops, or that special someone!

Please see what all the following designers have made using the *NEW* products:

I chose to make a lunch box for today's hop, using the Boxed Lunch template. I used the camo paper found in the Made in the USA package; it's too cute! The lunch box was sized down to about 50% of the original making this the perfect size for a small treat or gift. Inside, I have a little package of crackers that my son can munch on as a snack at school.

The images are also included in the Made in the USA package; they were fun to work with. I opted to use the alphabet as a strip instead of separating each letter.

Now you are probably excited to see what was released in honor of this special occasion!

*NEW* at My Time Made Easy ™ LLC is an amazing package collection called Made in the USA!

Made in the USA Package $10

As mentioned above, this collection was created in honor of those who have, or who are currently serving our country! This package includes everything you need to create your own amazing gift package! Contents in this collection are the Tough Tank Template, a sheet of Camouflage Digital Paper, and an additional three sheets of patterned paper in red polka dots, yellow stars, and blue stripes, as well as a Set of 31 Digital Images called Made in the USA.

About: Made in the USA Digital Stamp Set: includes a Military Forces tag that can be customized, a saluting soldier silhouette, a Dog Tag, circle flag tag, alphabet for you to create your own tag, as well as a Made in the U.S.A. sentiment.

Note: The top of the tank rotates 360 degrees, and comes off the tank, so you can package all sorts of gift items inside the tank.

Now you too can easily re-create this Tough Tank to create your own customized gift package. The perfect container to package up gifts for any of our Troops, maybe for sending a special care package, a great gift option for someone who served, or is serving in the military, or maybe that special child in your life who enjoys playing with Army men, and things of similar nature. Makes an excellent party favor or centerpiece too!
