View Full Version : Patriotic Pride (all countries,not just US) -- ends 6/30

06-04-2008, 11:05 AM
In honor of the Fourth of July (as that's when these layouts will be included in the newsletter), I'm asking for your patriotic layouts. BUT, since SAS is a global company, with designers and members from all over the world, we're not just asking for layouts using the stars and stripes, the red, white and blue. Oh no, we want to see your patriotic pride for your country, whatever it may be. Show us your layouts celebrating national holidays, or landmarks from where you live. Show us what makes where you live special.

Cathy has another great bonus for everyone who completes this challenge.


Your layout must be made with SAS products, either purchased or given as freebie.

All layouts submitted will appear in the newsletter, around the 1st of the month. I'll include layouts in as many issues as needed until I show them all off.

Upload your layout to the Newsletter Challenge Gallery (http://www.stoneaccentsstudio.com/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=610), and post a link to it here.

Well, shall I start, then?
Mine is called Ik hou van Holland (I love Holland)
It is the title of an old song....
I used all the clichés of Dutch national pride, the 'oranjegevoel' (orange feeling - patriotism, usually for sports or the Royals)

I don't know why I've never added a layout to this challenge - I love to see my name in print, you'd think I would have by now. :p

I live in one of the most patriotic cities in the US, Colorado Springs, CO. Not only do we have the Air Force Academy, but we have one of the largest Army bases (Ft. Carson), NORAD, Shriever AFB and Peterson AFB. We are surrounded by the military.

Here's my contribution to the newsletter challenge:


Thanks for looking!

We have a pretty nice fireworks display on July 4 near home with a moving simulcast on one of the local radio stations.

What I love most about my country (America) is all the gorgeous scenery....

Here is a link to a layout I did this morning. I had already filled up the spaces for where to put it and submitted it before I remembered where this thread was. So, it is not in the right gallery, but I wanted to include it in this thread to show it to you.
