Happy Fourth of July!

Happy Fourth of July!
Let Freedom Ring!  I love this holiday.  It is all about family and fun and remembering that we are so blessed to live in a country with so many freedoms.  I do wonder,  200 years after the Declaration of Independence was signed, if we we still hold tightly to the values of  so many of the founding fathers.  Those men had such courage...and in their youth...didn't seem to realize they were taking on Goliath - but they did it and they won! 

Today - I have concerns that the same quest for freedoms that birthed this country- is now somehow a fatal flaw. With great freedom comes great responsibility. Integrity and character are still what will make or break a nation. This is a creative blog and not a political one - so I will leave it at that. I am grateful for those who came to build better a better life- some on the Mayflower and some in my lifetime.  We are all richer for the melting pot that makes America great. 

My layout is not from a 4th of July celebration..maybe that will come later...but this paper seemed so right for the day! Fireworks and Epcot go together! We love the show there.This particular visit to Disney in 2007 is barely scrapped.  I am getting so much done recently with my growing digital skills.  I work on a layout when I need a break from editing photos.  It refreshes me and I can go back to my current photography projects.  

I have Walker's Freshman pages to do in the traditional scrapbooking manner of paper/adhesive/die cuts and more. How fortunate we are to have so many mediums to capture our memories. 

Savor your celebration today - wherever you are!

  1. Love this layout! Perfect elements for this Epcot page! We went to Disney World for the first time in March. Only got a half a day at Epcot, and it was not nearly enough time. I did not know that the cast members were from the country in which they worked. That makes me want to go again! Have a happy & safe 4th.
