America the Beautiful...Authentique Pride

I am hosting the Scraptown Lady Blog today. Hope all of you are gearing up for the 4th of July..picnics, camping, vacation...you name it.  Summer is in full swing and America's Birthday is just around the corner.  This new line from Authentique is perfect for all of this holiday's events!  Pride is gorgeous...gorgeous colors, the perfect amount of distressing and of course the amazing weight and texture of their paper.

I really didn't have any great 4th of July pictures to scrap....my fireworks pictures just never seem to turn out.  So when I was scrolling though my saved pictures on my computer, I came across this picture of my best friend's little guy at Harney Peak in South Dakota...I instantly knew I wanted to use this photo because it truly is America the Beautiful when you get to the top and can see forever.  His cheeks are flushed and he is tired...but he is so proud that he made it to the top.  The view is simply amazing.  Makes me miss home so very much!

I had lots of fun layering Authentique papers and all the fun dies that Scraptown Lady carries.  She has an amazing selection of dies..you just have to stop by to see! You can find the link to the store below where I have listed the ingredients for this layout! I love the look of those stacked stars from My Favorite Things. All of it just fell together and creates a fun tribute to America and Hayden's conquering of Harney Peak!

Thanks for stopping by the Scraptown Lady blog today and have a safe 4th of July holiday!
