History in My Lifetime

Happy Saturday and welcome to the History in My Lifetime blog hop.  If you came from Vicki's blog you are in the right place.  If not, please start with Jaime who is the beginning. 

Today we're sharing projects that center around a special event that occurred during our lifetime.  I immediately thought of the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, GA.  I was blessed to be a Medical Runner at the Aquatic Center.  It was a job of a lifetime.  I really enjoyed myself.  

Here is a shadow box that I altered to hold the lapel pins I traded while I was there.  Because of my job, I was allowed to interact with dignitaries from all around the world.  While there I was able to meet and take a picture with Hilary Clinton and Greg Norman. Hopefully I can create my other project and post it tomorrow.


One person who comments will receive a small prize pack of embellishments from my stash.  Be sure to leave a way for me to get in touch with you if you win.  You don't have to be a follower/friend but I do like making new friends.  

Remember, I love you and there ain't nothing you can do about it!  Now hop on over to Jaime's and check out her wonderful project!
