Twisted Sketches has revealed its latest sketch, #109, and the twist is “flowers.” Be sure to head over to the site to grab the sketch, then create something and link it up! 🙂
Here’s my Design Team layout inspired by the sketch…
Because I was working on this layout over the July 4th weekend, I was inspired to scrap these 1976 Bicentennial photos. On July 4th, 1976, our whole family donned red, white and blue outfits that Mom had carefully chosen for us and jumped on a plane from Cleveland to California (where my mom’s side of the family lived). It was the first time Phil and I had taken an airplane trip, and that alone was very exciting. But at school and at home we had been learning all about what the Bicentennial meant to our country, and so that celebration was also a big deal to us.
Once we arrived in California we spent that day catching up with our grandparents and our mom’s brother and his family (that’s our cousin, Lori, in the photos with us). We had a picnic and then ended the day writing our names in the dark with sparklers. It was a really big day.
The patterned papers I used are mostly from K&Company’s Americana line, and the background paper is from Basic Grey’s Basics line.
