United We Stand.

Happy 4th of July weekend!  

How appropriate that I created a layout today with my new Bo Bunny "Liberty" collection. I just LOVE it!


I'm entering this layout in their advertisement inspiration contest; following Old Navy's patriotic sale.

I used this Page Maps challenge sketch:


I used only 1 larger photo but kept all other elements of the sketch the same.

This is my husband Dave reading the historical Gettysburg Address, which is etched on window glass overlooking the battlefields at the visitors center.


The journaling explains how we take for granted how lucky we are to live in such a historical town, where many tourists visit to see the things in our backyard - ESPECIALLY 4th of July weekend. It's packed here!


It's been a while since I took the time to stitch on a layout, but I'm so glad I did. I was immediately drawn to the bracket shape on the sketch and emphasized it with red thread. I also added 3 star gems to the bottom right of the layout, also from the Liberty collection.


The pieces on the top left of the layout are chipboard. I love Bo Bunny's thick chipboard!  This sketch was perfect for the big flourish/star piece. The "United We Stand" title is so fitting for President Lincoln's address.

Thanks for stopping by today. 
Have a fun, safe weekend!
