Maggie set her weekly challenge as Remembrance with Armistice Day fast approaching.
I thought a lot about this theme. A week or so ago we had done a Vintage challenge and I'd make a tag with an image of a WW1 soldier and the words from the poem Flanders Fields so I wanted to do something different for this week's.
I remembered seeing this photo of the soldier overcome by his grief crouching down in front of the line of boots and rifles which depicted all his fallen comrades and thought this was a fitting image to use.
The 'Soldiers Poem' is a a favourite and I think it reminds us all that our freedoms were obtained at great cost.
I printed the poem over a Union Jack on acetate and placed it over white card.
The blue cross is in remembrance of all those who paid the ultimate price and the cream ribbons and dove the symbol of hope and peace.
