Hello Sunshine...with a patriotic flare?!

why, yes!



After my family's trip to Washington D.C. this past weekend, I wanted to jot down these thoughts that my daughter had before i forgot them. So I pulled out Hello Sunshine and got to work!

This line is PERFECT for so many uses...but I love that I used it on this 'kinda patriotic' layout, while it isn't themey at all. While at the Smithsonian American History Museum, Allie had the chance to stand at the President's podium and address the nation...telepromptor, bright lights and all. So after I snapped a quick photo, I asked her what she would do if she were President for a day...and the journaling on the right of the page is what she came up with. :)

Quick note: don't be afraid to chop up those die-cuts! I cut the yellow one here in half and then used it as a base for my title...the black letters stood out a bit better on the yellow than on the red.

And don't hesitate to use products in 'different' ways...who would have ever thought Hello Sunshine could be patriotic?!

Great layout!

I agree with you the diecuts are even more fantastic when cut apart AND you get more for your money using them on multi projects.... win win in my book

Cutting up the die-cuts was a great idea -- the title really does stand out. Cute pic!
