Patriotically, not patriotic.... huh? (2 layouts)

This week at FROSTED DESIGNS our challenge is to use STARS, STRIPES and RED, WHITE & BLUE.
I don't often do 2 pagers, but I had a lot of photos that supported the story of Joseph's FIRST EVER donut at the age of 6...yea that's why it was layout worthy!! I actually had this layout and paper picked out when I realized it was red, white & blue AND had stars and stripes on it!   I didn't ever think about it but a layout didn't really have to be "patriotic" and still fit that theme.So with that new realization flashing through my head, I did a second layout, also not patriotic, that meets the challenge. Now I've got to be honest, I almost left off that big star and called my layout "SCARS and STRIPES"....but I opted for the big star to fill that space and I think I made the better choice!!


  1. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh these are AWESOME Joni!! I loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee the photos...and loving how you used the papers for a non-patriotic lo's! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

  2. Joni...every time I see that poor little banged up knee, I cringe for your little man!! That must have hurt!! But the LO is fabulous!! I love that you were able to use the colors and not make it patriotic!!
