Red, White, Blue and Pink!

Hello, Dear Ones and welcome to Pink Saturday hosted by our Most Wonderful Pinkest Beverly at How Sweet the Sound! Make sure you pop in to see her and your most gorgeous baby blues will be filled with the most Pinkness you've ever seen! Our Dear Beverly said we could post about Red, White and Blue since Sunday is July 4th, and that is what I've done.

I love to scrap and try to be creative with pretty papers, but since Hurricane Ike hit our little island a couple of years ago, my area I scrap in was all taken apart to make room for my Mother who had to move in with us temporarily...and on and on. So I've just started to put my room back together again and I made a patriotic tag to show you today!

Now this is a great big ole tag! I used 8 1/2" x 11 1/2" card stock and I just poked it as full as I could with cute red, white and blueness! :)

Bows, buttons, graphics, ribbons and a tiny little tag.

Cute little boys and girls celebrating the grand old flag day!

I added a pretty flower with a button center.

It was just too white for me so I used brown chalk to age it. I can't find any of my inks, I hate this, so I just had to use my chalks to darken the edges of the flower.


Moving on down my gigantic tag is some little music ~ a patriotic Note Song just for you! :) and you can see the colors flying overhead!

I finished off my tag with sewing on some lace. But wait...it's Pink Saturday! We must have some Pink!



Aww, much better! Pinkness of Patrioticness!
I hope you all have a blessed fourth of July
and
Happy Pink Saturday!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

I'm Proud to be an American
If tomorrow all the things were gone I’d worked for all my life,
And I had to start again with just my children and my wife.
I’d thank my lucky stars to be living here today,
‘Cause the flag still stands for freedom and they can’t take that away.
And I’m proud to be an American where as least I know I’m free.
And I won’t forget the men who died, who gave that right to me.
And I’d gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land God bless the U.S.A.
From the lakes of Minnesota, to the hills of Tennessee,
across the plains of Texas, from sea to shining sea,
From Detroit down to Houston and New York to LA,
Well, there’s pride in every American heart,
and it’s time to stand and say:
I’m proud to be an American where at least I know I’m free.
And I won’t forget the men who died, who gave that right to me.
And I’d gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land God bless the U.S.A
~sung by Lee Greenwood

  9. That's a terrific patriotic mega tag you made. I know what you mean about your craft room - I lost mine when my daughter and grandson moved in, so I don't do much scapbooking anymore.

    Thanks for posting that great song too.

  25. Happy Pink Saturday Sheila Sweetie...
    OMG What an awesome job you did with this tag. The nice thing about making one this size, it can be put on the door to welcome guests or an area where the BBQ is going to be. It says American all over it. I love the addition of the flower with the button center and ofcourse the precious little patriotic bow. The music page really added to the Americana effect. I love it.

    Thank you for sharing sweetie. Have a beautiful Pink Saturday and a gorgeous 4th of July.

    Country hugs and much love, Sherry

  26. You are too funny, my friend! LOL! I was wondering where your pink was, and then you surprised us! :-)

    Love that cute tag, Shelia. You did a super job on it, and I like the way you aged that flower. I'll have to remember that for future reference.

    Sending you BIG hugs for a Happy 4th!

    XO,

    Sheila :-)
