An American Hero! for JUGS

I have two posts today - this one for JUGS and another one for My Time Made Easy - please be sure to check them both :-)

It's a Just Us Girls Saturday sketch challenge today and we have a fabulous sponsor this week... Want2Scrap! Be sure to visit the W2S blog - our very own Dana (our JUGS hostess this week) has a fabulous tutorial up there about creating 3D peonies!

Here's the sketch this week

Want2Scrap generously supplied each of us with a few goodies :-) With such a WIDE VARIETY of accessories I had a hard decision but one item that I chose was this laser cut title called American Hero.
I shared on my blog about my son's best friend Ian returning from Afghanistan on THIS POST and since then I knew I wanted to do some sort of scrapbook page as a tribute to Ian. This was the perfect opportunity!

Here's my scrapbook page - using as much of the JUGS sketch as I could work in. It's square instead of rectangle and I will put it in one of the 12x12 frames when I get out to Michael's to buy aother one.


I added lots of baby bling pearls (from Want2Scrap) as accents around the page. They are a fun, tiny size - I have both red and blue ones on my page. Honor - Courage - Commitment are the Core Values of the Marine Corp so I worked those into my layout. I printed these on my computer.


Hope you will play along with us this week. Want2Scrap is offering up a $25.00 gift certificate (and that will buy you a LOT of bling) to one lucky winner this week so get sketchy and post your creations on the JUGS site.

Our Featured Designer for Just Us Girls this month is Lori Kalus - be sure to stop over and leave her a warm JUGS welcome.

Hugs n smiles,
