Saturday 11 September 2010

Good morning, everyone. 9/11 is a day that will live in our memories forever - not just those in the USA who were affected directly, but including those of us, like me, who watched the events unfold on television and who will never forget that fateful day. It is a day that has changed almost every aspect of our lives and it's a day to remember the 3,000 people who died on 9/11 and a day to remember the troops that still continue to fight the war on terrorism. In the spirit of this day, Operation Write Home is hosting a special blog hop of which we, the DT members of The Stamping Boutique are honored to be a part of.

You should've arrived here from Lorie ( and from here, you need to go to Jenn R ( But here's the list in full, in case you've dropped in or out at any point or need to start at the beginning!
