Lasting Memories-Mining for Silver Gateway Arch

This week at Lasting Memories we are "Mining for Silver." We want to see silver on your layouts this week! Whether it’s embellishments, paper – we want to see lots of silver.

 So I went big, lol. How about the Gateway Arch, the gateway to the west for a lot of silver? The nation’s tallest monument at 630 feet, the Gateway Arch has beckoned visitors for more than 40 years with its iconic, awe-inspiring shape. The vision of renowned architect Eero Saarinen, the Gateway Arch commemorates Thomas Jefferson and St. Louis’ role in the westward expansion of the United States.

Supplies: This was done completely in scraps and in supplies that have been discontinued. I am really challenging myself to get stuff used up, so I have an excuse to buy all of the new CHA stuff coming out! LOL

The optional sketch for this week:
