I met Washington when she was a Drill Sergeant in my husband's Basic Training company when he was the First Sergeant.
Last year she was deployed to Iraq and then Afghanistan. While she was in Iraq she re-enlisted and had shared a bunch of photos. I saved them all and had them printed off.
I had never made a scrapbook.. in fact, I used to joke that maybe I was a scrapbooker since I had all the "stuff".. ha ha... but I wanted to make something special for her.
I started on this book months ago.. then had a surgery and then my physical therapy and now feel so much better so I got back to working on the book.. .especially since my hubby was going to be going to Ft. Drum, NY for a few days and could hand deliver it to her.
I asked her if I could share the pictures of the pages in the book. I used stickers, stamps, punches and more to put this together.. and she loves it.
