Stars and Stripes

Happy 4th of July Everyone.

The ladies and " the gent"  in the Den is having a mini-blog hop. We each created something  using stars and stripes as our theme. I decided to create a 12x12 layout. Very simple, very patriotic. I used a solid 12x12 red sheet of cardstock. Next I used a rotary scallop cutter to make the cream stripes and layered it on top of the red base.  A used the Martha Stewart  star punch on the corners of the blue photo mats and title base.  I also used some dimensional stars and the letters USA. Finally, I stamped the song "My County Tis of Thee on the bottom blue mat. The empty blue photo mat is where I will be adding my sons patriotic photo that will be taking later on today during our BBQ pool party.

Go check out what the other ladies and gentlemen in the Den are up to.  As you prowl around, you are sure to see some amazing projects. If you started with me by chance, pounce back over to  Elsa and make your way through the Den. Leave a comment for each person you visit. Thanks for participating in our blog hop. We are all roaring with pride over our projects.

Have a safe and fun Independence Day with family and friends. ROAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
