Country Colors

Hello Y'all!

How are you doing? It seems like some of you might be buried in snow based on the news. I'll make a deal with you. Save some of that snow and ship it to me in the summer, and I'll send you some sun. (Ha! Just noticed all the alliteration in this sentence.)  Deal? ;)

So, I'm stopping by to share my latest project for Scrapping 4 Fun Challenges.  The new challenge is to use your country's flag colors in your project, therefore I used red, white, & blue.  Truth be told, I wasn't born in the good ole U.S.A.  However, I've adopted this great land of freedom as my home.

Let's begin. :)

See those lines across my picture? That's courtesy of my printer. :(

This layout isn't packed with great embellishments or any fancy techniques.  Many times I struggle with creating layouts because I want them to be "trendy" and cute.  But my whole philosophy of scrapbooking is to document my story and memories.  And when I focus back to my philosophy, I let go of those standards and just tell and my story.
(Supplies: cardstock; washi tape; letter stickers; star stickers- Heidi Swapp; sewing machine)

So what project will you create with your flag's colors?  Have some fun and then link it up here.
Thank you SO much for taking the time to visit me. :D 

Happy Crafting,
