No matter how you feel about the current military situation or what the state of your patriotism is, you can still take time to remember what Memorial Day is for: remembering those who died to protect us.
I was really moved yesterday when my kids and I bought some poppies from a group of veterans. I'm used to being around veterans, in fact many of them now work with us in the civilian sector. And I know from friends of retirees that sometimes veterans are a little bit forgotten. When the man handed me the flower he said "Thanks for supporting us." In that moment I felt really humbled. I kind of stammered and said, "Thank YOU for supporting US." It sounded so stupid but it was all I could muster.
This kit is a small tribute to those who have fought to protect human life and the right to freedom. And it can be yours to scrap your Memorial Day memories if you spend $5 or more in any of my shops by May 31st. In order to claim your freebie just email me with proof of your purchase from KD Designs and I will email you instructions on how to download. It's that easy. You can find KD Designs products in these three locations:

I'm working on part of the Progressive Blog Challenge and a fun celebratory collaboration kit. More info to come, but you will definately want to block some time to check out all the fun!
