Rosie The Riveter
All around this Nation
Women took up the Battle
Beyond all imagination.
Over six million of them
Traded aprons for coveralls
And answered like true Patriots
When their Country calls.
They worked in every industry
To build the tools of War
From guns and tanks and planes
To ships and so much more.
A key part of our Defense
To free the Men so they could fight
Showing they could do it all
They worked the plants day and night.
Could we have won without them?
Some say it would have been tough
And we never gave them credit
Or at the least, not near enough.
So many years have passed by
With so many changes in our life
Thanks to what all those Ladies did
Who were Sister, Mother, Friend or Wife.
This is Denise's wonderful rendition of a true legend, Rosie The Riveter!! So creatively done with a mode twist!! The design of the LO is beautiful. Like a feast for the eyes in a flower garden. the vine is divine, and love how it flows away from the coer floral arrangement. So ingenious to include Rosie's photo with Denise's ADORABLE daughters photo which is the wonderful main attraction in this twist of mode nostalgic art!! Our girls today are STRONG!!! And we teach them if that they put their mind to it they can achieve anything. Anything boys can do we can do better!! Ya know, Rosie herself could have riveted that piece of Tim Holtz die cut to the LO..Awesome addition to an awesome LO!!! Congrats Denise on a job so well done!! We totally enjoyed this one!!Please visit Denise's blog for more inspiration!! And wonderful closeups!!

Yay Denise!!! Great LO, love this! What prompted your daughter to take this pose or did you coerce her into it!!
"Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."January 10, 2011 at 2:19 pm #83152
