Paper Blooms Challenge #8 - RED, WHITE & BLUE



This week at Paper Blooms Blog our challenge was to do a red, white & blue themed project. We could either do a layout, card or alter something. I decided to do a layout of my sweet step mom that passed last year. I used some of Leah's beautiful blooms and pearl stick-pins to help attain the blue and white and then I choose a rose dp because Linda was always, " our rose among the thorns". Check out all of Leah's beautiful creations - Paper Blooms ETSY Store! She has even added mini-kits to her store. Please go over to Paper Blooms Blog and join in on the fun challenge - it does NOT have to include any of Leah's blooms - just incorporate red, white and blue in your project. Have an AWESOME day!
