God Bless the USA

Good Monday and Memorial Day

First I would like to thank all of the service men and women who have served
and do serve our country.  It's only because of your sacrifice and God's grace
that we live in the comforts of FREEDOM!
And HAPPY 44th Birthday to my hubby...who always seems to have a nice long
weekend to celebrate his birthday LOL

Now, let's do a little celebrating with the 

You should be arriving here from the very talented Rose of 
Rose's Happy Place...if not, be sure to click here so you don't miss a thing :)

For today's assignment, I wanted to represent Americana.
Since Memorial Day is the unofficial kick-off-to-Summer, and because I LOVE
all things red-white-and-blue, I decided on this

  I used the whimsical hat and star Stickerz from Patriotic Party

I applied the Stickerz to white cardstock and then trimmed out.  I like to do this
if I'm planning on popping up the Stickerz images with foam dots.
Check out the huge assortment of Stickerz at EAD Designs...
those, along with Rubons alway ship FREE!

Now, off to see what the creative Amy has in store for you today.

I cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the pocket and mounted it to the sticky back of the pocket.
