With the 4th of July right around the corner here in the States, I wanted to create a page that was a bit Americana.
This is in my top 3 favorite family photos, and it is one I have scrapped before. This was taken 6 years ago at a family reunion we held at our home over the 4th of July weekend. This is a picture of my DD (far left) and my 3 nieces. Aren't they the sweetest things!? I love taking spontaneous photos as opposed to posed photos. While everyone was trying to get them to "behave", I just kept snapping away and was overjoyed when I saw what I had captured. My SIL made the matching dresses for the girls. :) My niece, Kasey (3rd one from left) is a cancer survivor. She was diagnosed prior to her 1st birthday. We were very pleased to learn that days before their trip to our home, that she was cancer free for the first time in her very young life. I am very happy to tell you that she is still in remission and living a strong and healthy life. A true blessing.
I wanted to keep my page simple and working with Color Me Crazy Floradoodles was a snap!
I simply misted the flowers blue and embellished them with Liquid pearls and Petaloo feathers. I then misted the leaves with red and used them to accent the flower.
I hope you have a safe and happy upcoming 4th of July holiday!!
Thanks for stopping by,
