Bella Blvd's All American collection was a natural choice to scrapbook this memory. I love all of the stars, stripes and polka dot images it includes. To balance out the bold and colorful elements on the page however, I reached for a tone on tone woodgrain patterened paper from the Love and Marriage collection to use as my background. Here's a look....
Bella's stickpin flags are always a sweet little accent that can be tucked in just about anywhere on a page or card. Here I tied a simple little bow of crochet thread around my frame, and easially tucked and secured the flag through the knot. A splash of sequins, gems and buttons adds a bit more detail and interest to this ensemble.
For the page title, I originally used only the white letter stickers to spell out my saying. While it was legible, in the end, I decided to layer the white stickers over top a matching blue set to create the look of a shadow and a little more pop to the title piece.
This page, along with several other patriotic pages is up over on the Bella blog today. I hope you'll stop by and check them out!
