Citizenship Day


And here he is again, my great nephew Silas.   His Mom was born in the USA, in Missouri and then moved with her Mom to Australia when she was 5, but has always kept dual citizenship since she was born here, her Dad is here and comes back for a long visit every year.    So when her son was born, she wanted him to have dual citizenship too.    So the application was made and its all official.
Silas has dual citizenship in USA and Australia.   So   I wanted to document this using the pictures they shared.   The two with the flat was the day everything was done and approved and then a picture the day the certificate arrived making it fully official.

For this I used the sketch from  "STUCK ?! SKETCHES"  February 1st sketch.   You will have a chance to win one of two prizes or to be a guest designer for a future sketch.

Next I am going to enter this layout at  "SCRAPBOOK CHALLENGES"  the sketch crew crush Mandi's challenge 'Stacked & Layered"  I like to layer a lot of my papers so I had no problem with working with this challenge.
