American Dream

A beautiful layout from Rahel Menig celebrating her life in America!

"For me, an immigrant to the US, July is a very special month. I adore how the Americans love and emphasise their flag! (oh, and I looove the flag too! So pretty and strong at the same time!) That is why I was inspired to make a layout about my American Dream. I wanted to use red white and blue, but still make it very 'me'.
I used some of my very favorite paper, October Afternoon Rocket Age to build up my colors. I LOVE this collection, even tough I don't have a little boy I love to use it. It's so much fun and very versatile too! :D" ~~Rahel
A tip from Rahel: To make sure the title is exactly where I want it to be, I use transparency scraps, stick and stamp my title right on top of it and move it around until I like what I see. Super simple and so effective!
