Proud to be an AMERICAN




"RECIPE CHALLENGE"
3 - Designer/Patterned Papers
3 - Images
3 - Embellishments

AND

-----------> 1st PRIZE WINNER <----------
for the
Vintage Image Crafts
for my "Sicilian Antique's Box"
Shabby Chic, Vintage, Victorian, Distressed ----- I love it ALL ----- and that is why I chose another one of the Vintage Image Craft's images for today's project. Of course that little cutie in her "cracker jack" SAILOR outfit is near and dear to my heart even if it isn't the uniform that my husband wears anymore. "Cracker Jacks" just scream *** NAVY *** don't you think?


I LOVED this week's Fussy & Fancy "Recipe Challenge" (no one says the images have to be stamped RIGHT?) I hope you will join us and please feel free to combine our challenge with others!
