Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 and Digi Stamp Boutique

You know me, I love to start my Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 posts with a picture and something to say! Today is Titanic Remembrance Day, a day dedicated to the memory of the Titanic, and over 1500 people who died. On this day in 1912, the Titanic sank in the icy waters of the north Atlantic Ocean. The Titanic was called "unsinkable" and the "safest ship afloat" by her builder and designer. However, on her maiden voyage from England to New York City, the cruise ship Titanic hit an iceberg in the Atlantic Ocean. This occurred on April 14, 1912 at 11:40p.m.  Two hours later, with a gaping gash in her side, the ship quickly sank in icy waters. 1522 passengers and crew died.

That's your history lesson for today! Don't worry, there won't be a quiz at the end of this post. Be sure to stick around though for another fabulous sketch and design team inspiration.

  6. Congrats to the winner and top 3! Great post Linda, the info on the Titanic is interesting. I saw yesterday on FB a post about the dogs( pets ) on the Titanic, I think it said that there were 3 Airedale Terriers, which is what my Guinness is. Just a silly little piece of useless info that I remember, LOL.
