Celebrating Canada


I'm off celebrating Canada Day with my family but I wanted to schedule a post to show you this Celebrating Canada layout that I created using Pink Pailsee's 365 Degrees line. You can find this layout published in Canadian Scrapbooker's summer 2010 volume.

To create the masked title, I used Pink Paislee chipboard alphas. I patted the sticky back of the alphas against a cloth so they wouldn't be quite so sticky. I stuck them gently down on my paper and then sprayed red Maya Mist. I then removed the letters which gave me this neat effect for the title.

Right about now I'm heading down east to watch a small town parade in Cardigan, PEI. Then the rest of the day is filled with BBQs, pony rides, small town festivities and will be wrapped fireworks after the sun goes down. Of course, we will all be sporting our red & white clothes, maple leaf tattoos and flags and there will lots of photos!

Happy Canada Everyone!!!!
