"Remember This"

"Remember This" by Jackie Anderson is today’s scrapbook inspiration. Jackie says, "In August of 2007 the world watched as Crandall Canyon coal mine owner Bob Murray took news crews underground to observe the rescue effort as mine rescue teams tried desperately to save coal miners trapped more than 28,000 feet underground in one of the most televised mine disasters in history. The men who died there, both in the original collapse and the subsequent rescue effort, were co-workers of my husband, who is pictured standing at the trailhead that leads to the gravestones of the men who remain buried in the sealed off mine where he worked for nearly six years. We hiked that trail two weeks ago to visit the sacred site that was surrounded by the changing leaves of Autumn."

The butterfly on "Remember This" was hand-cut from patterned paper and the flowers are handmade. Make beautiful flowers like Jackie's by following the instructions in her tutorial, and visit her blog and gallery to see more of her wonderful scrapbook pages.

"Sept. 2010. 3 years after... we visitied Genwall and the grave stones of the men who died there and were never recovered."
