Memorial Day

** Click HERE for today's Made Especially for You challenge post! **

Happy Memorial Day! I hope all of you are having a safe and fun three day weekend!


Today's Challenge Me Monday challenge at Fantabulous Cricut is to make a project using the color red plus anything that makes you think of Memorial Day (ie. a flag, military symbol, or poppy).

The girl holding the flag is from the Summer Celebrations cartridge. I used Festive Berries distress ink to ink around the edges of the patterned paper. 
The poppy flowers are from this week's sponsor, Wild Orchid Crafts! You can find lots of goodies there, make sure to check them out here
The sentiment is from K Andrew Designs Freedom Isn't Free stamp set.

Thank you for looking!
