“I love scrapbooks. They are one of the finest ways of dejunking life and abode... A good scrapbook is interesting and inspiring even to the stranger...Well put together scrapbooks and photo albums have warmed more hearts than any bound book... Without a good scrapbook, much that's memorable in life is forgotten or damaged or lost...."

Heart 2 Heart Challenge - Happy 4th of July!

This weeks challenge over at the Heart 2 Heart Challenge Blog is a festive one - somehow include stars and/or stripes (and Maple leaves for our Canadian friends) in your project.  Well, everywhere I went it seems like everyone was getting ready for this upcoming holiday weekend so I decided to work with that and combine a whole bunch of challenges into one.  My card follows the Mojo Monday sketch for the week.  It also includes the colors from Jeanette Lynton's Monday color combo.  Lastly, of course it has lots of stars and even some stripes!

It took a little bit of playing with scraps to get this to come together the way I wanted it to, but I am very pleased with the results!  Now go check out what everyone else has created by visiting the H2H challenge blog - and maybe even get crafty yourself!

Papers: scraps from You Rock (outdoor denim), scraps from Cherry-O (tulip), Tulip, Desert Sand, Crystal Blue, and Colonial White Cardstock
