For this challenge I used Miss Kate Cuttables'  Patriotic Hot Air Balloon SVG File and made an scrapbooking layout using the easy to follow template from the Artbooking CTMH cart (which you can get from Connie here).

I left the "Liberty" title from the template because it seemed very fitting.

 I used my favorite patriotic CTMH papers, which I am sorry to say that is discontinued, but I love so much the little white star in the blue background ;-).

 I didn't glue two sides of the frame and just slightly glued a corner to later add the big picture behind this cute frame:

I also made a card for my monthly post at Connie's using a second cut I made from this file:

 I used Miss Kate Cuttables'  Patriotic Hot Air Balloon SVG File, which I also used in my previous project, but this time I made a card and changed the colors a bit. Those SVG files are so easy to work and simple to assemble. No fuss.

 I also used the Artbooking CTMH cart (which you can get from Connie here) negative shapes left over from my Liberty Layout for the inside of the card too. 

many blessings,
