I voted

 I have to admit I don't always get out to vote other than the big elections, but I made a promise to myself this year after it was easier to be out and about everywhere after Covid that I would go and vote in all elections in our town, big or small.  So last week we went out and voted.    There was the race for Mayor, and for 2 school board members and a couple of tax levies.      I didn't know yet what the the challenge at "CHALLENGE YOURSELF" was going to be yet but I knew I needed pictures of me, so I asked my hubby to take a picture of me when we got back to the car and then I took a selfie when I got in the car, so you could be sure and see my "I voted" sticker.     When I saw that challenge was to use stars on your layout, I pulled out some of my July 4th papers and put together this layout using stars on all the papers and also my alphas.    Thanks to "CHALLENGE YOURSELF" to make sure I get pictures of myself and congratulations to their 100th challenge.

Since it's this milestone challenge, we would like to see stars somewhere on your page this month! ★  And as always, please remember to include a photo with YOU somewhere on your layout.  


Besides the stars in the papers I also wanted to add some circles to my layouts as embellishments to go with the circle I Voted sticker and so I could enter this layout at  "LASTING MEMORIES" for their second shape challenge of the months to use circles.     So I fussy cut some small hearts out of a scrap piece of July 4th themed paper I had in my stash to go with the red/white/blue colors.
