5 Things I Love About The USA


This layout was inspired by a weekly challenge in the Library of Memories Community workshop at BPC. Stacy Julian challenged us to write down five things we love about our country, and I decided to create a layout using up some older patriotic supplies from my stash.

I flipped through my storage binders and found this photo that was taken a couple of years ago when we visited a nearby park's display of Christmas lights.


1. Freedom to worship God & share my beliefs.
2. Freedom to travel from state to state & enjoy the beauty & diversity of this land.
3. Freedom to make my dreams come true.
4. Freedom to vote.
5. Freedom to scrap all day long without persecution.

  6. Your page is wonderful and your list made me smile. I need to make a page like this for my mom. She wasn't born in the USA but she is the most patriotic person I know. Thanks for the inspiration.
