A Red, White & Blue Challenge

So, in my attempt to get caught up in our scrapbooks, here's a layout I finished to commemorate this past Fourth of July we celebrated with our family. Of course, it never fails, the camera never made an appearance after everyone arrived - DOH!. The only photo I'd taken was of the flowers we'd picked up for the occasion. I guess every photo has a story, doesn't it?This was the first chance I've had to use the Stand and Salute Cricut Cart. I used it for the banner along the side of the photo and gave it a shadow as well as the 'Freedom' with a red shadow behind. 'Let' & 'Ring' were from Lyrical Letters & welded to the 'Freedom'. The only thing that's missing is just a bit of journaling, but I'll add that later.
Striped & Star paper were papers I'd picked up at Michaels
Red paper is the Wild Berry Bo Bunny Dot paper
Navy Blue & White were Cardstock from my stash
Light Blue is Bazzill
Silver Star brads have been a long time resident in my brad stash
Some day I'll made a dent in the stash I have!!
Hope you're having a great weekend - we woke up to a super rainy day ended up with 2"+ of rain, so it was a perfect reason to spend some time in my studio!!
Happy Craftin'!


  1. This is too cute. I love the star brads. Don't count on making a dent in your stash anytime soon. If you are like me, for every one you used, it's relaced with 2 or 3!

  2. Lovely layout. One Christmas I wanted to make pictures of everything, so I took shots of the christmas balls and lights and all before they went into the tree and also of the girls decorating the tree. And guess what .... I never even thought about getting a shot of the finished tree !!! haha.

  3. I love the layout Min. It really makes me want the Stand and Salute cartridge and that hasn't been on my want list.

    And I am jealous that you got a layout done. I have to get back to the scrapbook pages soon. :)

  4. I saw that Cart. and I thought I'd like it. Now I know I want it. How much fun would that be to have to do the pages from BMT?
    Hmm...Tom did work OT today, lol

Hugs & Happy Days! ~Min
