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
