I did this layout for a Rusty Pickle challenge over on Create My Keepsake.
Okay, this layout is stretching a bit for the theme of the challenge which was to do a layout celebrating a holiday. I just love that in this photo that DD is in her 4th of July/patriotic dress and that DH is in his uniform. So even though the photo wasn't actually taken on the 4th, it is a very patriotic layout.
Absolutely everything on the layout is the Rusty Pickle Mayflower line except for the lace, 7gypsies photo turn, and the Bazzill scalloped cardstock. The quote strip across the top says, "This nation will remain the land of the free only as long as it is the home of the brave." This quote rings so true right now as my heart aches knowing that we are about to send him to Iraq (in a month) and that he is going to miss her 1st birthday. But he does his job to help secure her future in this country...Thanks for looking!
