The page makes me so happy! I made it for my entry to be on the SWAT design team. I feel like there are a lot of design team calls going on right now!
I really love these photos of my daughter. The sun had been hiding all winter and spring and finally on July 4th it came out! My daughter had no idea what a shadow was. I wanted the page to have a nod to the 4th of July since that is when it took place, but I didn't want it to be all red, white, and blue. I found some old paper in my stash (I think it came from and old DCWV summer stack) that looked really similar to the table cloth in the photos. I knew I just had to use it!
Once again I played around with shaker boxes. This time I cut a star out and made the box behind it. The box is a little deeper then I expected, so it is kind of hard to see what is inside of it. One of these days I will be completely happy with how they turn out. I also made a cute little pinwheel. I also used a really old red feather that I have had in a box of random stuff from high school. It even could be from middle school...eek! I have no idea why I have held on to it for 10-15 years. Anyways, it worked so well with this page and I'm glad to finally put it to some kind of use.
