A Patriotic Challenge

Can you believe it is Memorial Day weekend already!??!?!?!?! I sure can't!

This week, for Blogger's Challenge, we were to do a patriotic theme. Sounds fun, huh?

But first, I have a question for you......What do you get when you cross a Birthday stamp set, a Baby stamp set and a boho style stamp set??????


Give up yet????


hmmmm......do you?????



Did you guess it????












You get this!!

Isn't it darling? The stamp sets I used her was big birthday candle (firecracker), priceless ( fire cracker sparks), nursery necessities ( stars in border piece). And I also used the classic stars jumbo wheel and the abc alphabet lower set. The designer series paper here is washington apple. I used the slit punch for the white scallops and the scallop edge punch for the blue scallops. The heart chipboard is from onboard essentials. I used heat and stick powder with red fine glitter on them. The buttons are from fresh favorites 2, button latte and bouquet buttons.


Wanna see more detail?

Here is the left hand page:

Right hand page:

A closer look at the button details...they are actually stitched to the page with white crochet thread.

Here is the bottom border in more detail.....I wheeled it with the classic stars wheel and then stamped randomly stamped it with the star from nursery necessities in white craft ink. I think I have used nursery necessities for more themes than any other set. And to think, I kind of hesitated when I bought it.......what a doofus!!

Lets look closer at those firecrackers....in their sparkly glory!!!

Well, what do you think? I am pleased with the result....and you know what??? Got another spread done in my little one's album! Of course it is from 2007....but none the less, it is done :o)
