Current events had never before moved me to scrapbook until this past week. It was a moment to take pause, to reflect, and to remember. "Whatever it is or will become, this is a moment to take notice. That much is clear." - Candy Crowley, CNN Chief Political Correspondent
I'm not going to say a lot more other than what I wrote in the journaling. I will say that I celebrated National Scrapbook Day by finishing this layout this past Saturday. It's been a while since I created a layout just for me, and that was a lot of fun :)
I used an assortment of patterned papers for this layout: Basic Grey, Jenni Bowlin, WRMK, and retired Scenic Route. The "remember" are stickers from an October Afternoon element sticker sheet. The white letters and heart are from Doodlebug. I also painted a Scenic Route chipboard star blue, using acrylic paint, boy it's been a while! Again going all out, I inked the edges of the blue star! lol.
I think my favorite part of this layout is the color scheme once I decided to start with WRMK - Old Glory. I feel We R Memory Keepers is just one of these manufacturers who crank out amazing collections one after another, never flashy in its marketing, but always completely solid in its products! I've been a fan and collector for several years now :)
I always thought the JBS' Be Our Guest would be an amazing collection for USA related projects and I was right. I can't wait to use this color and patterned paper combination again for other Americana layouts in the future.
