Default SIC128 07/02/12 America the Beautiful



USA is celebrating our independence this week with the 4th of July! So I thought I would have an appropriate challenge for the week! I found this inspiring video. I loved it and took the challenge literally, but you can just go anywhere you want to with this. Be inspired by the beautiful scenes or whatever! I know some of you might be from Austrailia, or Canada, or somewhere else. So just watch the video and go from there.

Challenge Create a page inspired by this Video.


My sample: America the Beautiful

Check out the gallery here

I hope you play along with us!

I look forward to seeing your pages! As always, they can be paper, digi or hybrid!!! Please remember to add SIC128 and sbc12jul (or whatever month you do this challenge in, because you can do this challenge anytime you want. There is no time limit!) to your keywords so we find your pages.
And please post a link in this thread, so we know you did one for this challenge.

Have a wonderful 4th!

Sharon

About 10 years ago, my GF and I flew to Vegas and stayed in Utah for a week. We went to Bryce Canyon and took some awesome pictures there and at some other state parks. I wish I could find those pictures (don't know where I have them) because they would be perfect for this challenge. One of these days I'll find the envelope or box I've got them in. I know where the booklet is that I purchased at Bryce Canyon...just can't find those pictures!

I am always "looking" for something in my scrap area, photos, a gaget, or a sticky note with a challenge on it! LOL I know what you mean. Then I will find it when I am looking for something else!

Hi Sharon, I'm Candy (Patti's younger sister). I have an All American Album I started a couple years and still need to do about 6 pages. This challenge is perfect It fits right in with a page I've been wanting to add to that album, thanks for the challenge/inspiration.

Wow, Patti! So great that this challenge inspired four pages from you! What great vacation pages. Wish I could get that many done all at once. I need to get down to it! You did a wonderful job! Thank you for playing.

Talking here's mine

I had these picts out to do this page and just couldn't figure out a layout but I ran across a sketch by Cheryl (scs: Motherload) and it was perfect. I finished it up this weekend with VSBN Challenge (oh yeah, I put this one in the "fear" category, LOL!) I love fireworks but always get nervous when my boys do the firecrackers at home ... the Mom worry comes out in me
