Canada Day T-Shirts! A H2H Challenge

Happy Canada Day!

One of our family traditions is to get new shirts each year for Canada Day! As a scrapbooker I always stage pictures of the girls and make sure I get pictures of the girls in their shirts. I made this layout for the pictures I will take this year (I already scrapbooked last years) and the theme for this months Heart 2 Heart Challenge scrapbook challenge. This layout will hold a 5X7 and 3 4X4 pictures and I left a bit of space for some journaling. 

The Challenge this month is a Colour Challenge - Red and White!

It’s not a coincidence that this color combo corresponds with all of the flags of “Close To My Heart countries” and that both Canada and the United States celebrate their independence this month.  

You can any shades of blue and any neutrals to your project, but please keep the focus on Red (Ruby or Cranberry) & White Daisy.  Your project doesn’t have to be patriotic, but it certainly could be!  You must mention which CTMH colors you use in your scrapbooking project.  You must also have some SPARKLE (red shimmer trim, sparkles, or base & bling, anyone?) AND sewing too!  Real or faux, it’s up to you!

So remember, show your CTMH pride, scrapbook-style with:
-Any red and White Daisy
- sparkle
- sewing
- optional blue

Some details about my layout here, I do have sparkle on it but it is not showing up very well in the pictures, I have bitty clear sparkles in-between each of the banners. The swirly lines across the bottom are faux sticking using the Simple Stitches stamp set and are stamped in Ruby and Black. The stitching line was straight but I laid it out wavy on my block for a unique look.
