First up is a basic basic basic page, but it did take quite a bit of time. This is a picture from our Friendraiser three weeks ago. Since it was for Soldier Socks - we had a USA theme - so I dressed my girls up in flag bandannas. They looked so cute that I took a picture of them. From left to right is: Lily Pumpkin Pie, Nolie Canoli and Layla (no 'official' middle name yet)!!
For the party, I had bought 300 mini USA flags from Target. I thought we'd be giving them out to each party guest and using some with the decor - but - they didn't work with the gift, so I had A LOT unused.
I decided to use some of those flags as part of this page. Thankfully, my Sizzix dies cut material - so I used the star die and the Roundabout Sizzlits alphabet.
None of my red or blue cardstock matched the red and blue in the flag, so I had to go with a white background. It works OK except around the words.
So, after I adhered all the letters on - I ended up lightly sponging around each letter with red chalk ink just to help the letters pop off a bit more.
I'm so glad we finally got some pictures printed up. Most of the time the pictures just find a home in my computer.
Thanks for stoppin' in today!Maria
