JUGS #90

This week over at the Just Us Girls challenge blog Maria is our hostest and she is challenging us to make a 3-D project with a 4th of July theme.  I chose to make a shadow box that I will insert pictures into.  The reason I didn't is because my printer isn't working!!!  It seems to be lately that it is one thing after another!  Oh Well, when life hands ya' lemons ya' make lemonade!!!  LOL!!!

I picked up this K&Company paper pack called Americana last week that I thought would be just perfect for this weeks challenge. I used pop-ups behind the America is Beautiful strip and between each mat on the 4x6 frames for added dimension.  I love doing shadow boxes because you can take the page out after awhile and slide it into your scrapbook and just insert another one.  My friends and family always love checking the box to see if thier faces have made it onto the wall!!!  LOL!!!

Check out the rest of the JUGS blogs and our guest designer Rosemary for more inspiration.
