My American Girls


I created this page for a challenge over at Memorable Seasons for their 2nd Annual Last Scrapper Standing contest! The first challenge was "An American Child", and we had to use stars and stripes on our layout. I love that this challenge could be interpreted in many ways, not just patriotic!! However, I had these awesome 4th of July photos of the girls with Princess, so I went all out Patriotic!! I used Pink Paislee Starlight, Cosmo Cricket Halfway Cafe, Rusty Pickle letters brads (thanks Chris!), Thickers, Maya Road acrylic sheer and kraft envelope, Jenni Bowlin journaling star, so many things from my stash (mostly Making Memories items), and I sewed! One of my favorite things that I added is the "made in the U.S.A." strip. It came from the bottom cutaway strip on the Pink Paislee paper!! It was fun to pull out a bunch of older items and put them on this layout!! I love the way this turned out!

I hope you're having a great day! Thanks for stopping by!

Oh wow, Carol....this is just fantastic. I love the photos of your darling daughters and that sweet sweet Princess (Heidi says hello to all of you and says she remembers your visit)....
Have a wonderful day.

Hi, Carol! That made in the USA strip is brilliant! And I am totally digging the stripes at the top and bottom of the page!
