Red White & Blue

Hello scrappy friends!

Since our summer is coming to an end and the weather is cooling off I had the urge to get my scrappiness on!  As I was browsing through my favorite scrapbook challenge sites I came across the perfect sketch from Stuck?!

This is a picture of my dad during his army days from 1964.  He sent this photo to my mother with a little note on the backside.  I scanned those words and copied them onto my journal strips.  They are his words to her in his actual handwriting.  He was really proud of his shiny boots :)

For this layout I used All American by Bella Blvd.  I created the stars with punches by layering and adding bling.  The title is an old embellishment I had in my stash. 

Now for the sketch.  As you can see, I stayed pretty true to it.

That's it for today.  Thanks for stopping by.  Have a scrappy day!
