Bittersweet: Raspberry Road Hearts Boston Tag

We felt the pain when innocence was shattered at the 117th Boston Marathon in an attack of senseless violence. In the midst of our grief for the lives that were lost and all the people that suffered serious injuries there were stories of heroism and selflessness that inspired us.

The Spirit of Boston is Strong and to commemorate that Spirit I was inspired to use Raspberry Road's Bittersweet Collection to design a Tag for you. Bittersweet is a beautiful altered art style collection with a theme of love and loss and it worked really well for this layout.

Here is my layout with the Boston City Seal and the Boston Strong Logo. The image is linked.

The Boston Strong logo featuring the "B" logo of the Boston Red Sox is available on the Major League Baseball's web site.

We remember Martin Richard (8), Krystle Campbell(29), Lingzi Lu (23), Officer Sean Collier (26) and all of those injured on Patriots' Day and their families.

My nephew and niece live in Boston, and my other niece lives in D.C., but often travels to Boston - my heart just thudded when i heard the news! They were all safe, but only because they were not able to attend the marathon that day because of other commitments! While i was relieved they were safe, i wept for those who were injured and died - the most poignant, of course, was the 8 y/o child who was intentionally targeted by the bomber who set the bomb down beside that child! Thank you for this beautiful, powerful tribute!
