What a Parade!

Celebrate Freedom - we really don't think about it much.  I've been to several countries where the quality of life for some is very poor and the governments do not give assistance.  Yes - I am proud to be an American - Let's CELEBRATE FREEDOM.  My photos today are from a small town parade we went to this year on the 4th of July.  What a great turnout and it lasted a whole 20 minutes!

I used my new cartridge, Something to Celebrate for the banner backgrounds and the word Celebrate.  I created another banner and put the word Freedom from Create a Critter 2 on top.  Fireworks from CAC2, and the boy with flag from A Child's Year.

Our sweet friend, Brenda, from friendscraftinwithfriends is hosting our challenge this week at BBTB2.   Since it's Labor Day weekend, she has asked us to create a patriotic themed project.  I hope you can join us and make a project to celebrate the day!


  1. Wow Maureen, I am so loving this layout! I have flag paper similar to this but wasn't sure how to use it, you have inspired me to use it as I love how you laid out your pics and die cuts. I was just looking at the Something to Celebrate cart online and now I think I will have to go buy it. lol Hugs, Brenda
