May Monthly Smeared Ink Blog Hop | Anything Goes

Good Morning Smeared and Smudged Family! Today I'm participating with the Smeared & Smudged members in ANYTHING GOES blog hop! In the states we are coming up on Memorial Day weekend. Several of our family members have served and we always think of them on this day of remembrance. This time of the year much of our landscape is abloom including the pathways along the railroad tracks...I like to think that the poppies I see blooming each year were among those sewn by returning soldiers passing along those tracks on their way back home. So today I share with you this Poppy ATC as mentally I prepare to remember those who've served so that we may live a life with freedoms.

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed my project!
