LO for a Challenge!

Yeah, I know this is a LO of last years 4th of July festivities, but I just put this page together yesterday. I am typically a year or two behind with scrapping holiday photos. For some reason, I have a hard time doing holiday LO's. It's probably because I have a ton of pictures and never can decide which to omit and which to scrap. So, I was delighted when I got all these favorite pics on one page without it looking too busy or tacky! I am also submitting this LO to a blog challenge called The Pink Elephant. The challenge was to create a card or LO using "Stars & Strips" (strips, not stripes!) My polka dot frame is cut strips of paper and I added some gold star brads to make it a bit more patriotic. Personally, I think the photos speak for themselves!

I plan to have a fun weekend of crafting and creating. I feel like I got a lot of chores done today, so I can indulge in some guilty pleasures! Happy crafting!
