We truly are blessed to be Americans. And even more so to be women in Amercia.
We also got a contribution from Crafty Craftola - a recipe for Blueberry Sangria Lemonade (ah yum!!!) Patriotic? Sure, she's going to serve it on the Fourth of July! Sounds pretty good to me!
Remember it is never too late to participate in any of our challenges.
Now on to this weeks challenge:
I couldn't let June end without a nod to its reputation as the traditional wedding month (although October is becoming more and more popular all the time).
I love weddings. Weddings are so full of promise; of a lifetime of love as a couple goes forth into the great unknown of life with optimism and hope that they can weather it all together.
But not everyone wants to make a project with a wedding theme, sooooo.....how's about this for our theme this week:
Make something on either the theme of Wedding/Marriage or with White as the primary color of your project! That leaves you lots of room to interpret as you will! And we can't wait to see what you make!
And I'm going to have to post mine a little later to this - because, as you may well know, I have a seriously ill family member and I've been spending a lot of time taking care of her. But I will have something to inspire you with - but I didn't want to hold things up. So, onto Jana (who is conscientious and finished her project!)
Jana here: I don't have any weddings coming up, so I really didn't want to make a card. I didn't get married in white, so MY wedding pics are out. Hmmmm. What's a girl to do? Well, I'll tell you what I did. I made a gluebook page. Actually 2 of them. I kind of cheated on the second page, which is actually the first page you see in the book because I made the right page first and the left page was an after thought. But here it is.
I was going for
BRIDE GOT LOST IN THE PLANNING
as the theme for the first (right side of the layout) page.
Second (left side of the layout) page is just for fun.
No theme or message.
