My All-American Girl

This month I am so excited to be a guest designer for Scrap it With a Song! SIWAS is a challenge blog that uses song titles as the challenge themes.

My first challenge was the song "American Girl" by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.


In 1999, my mom became a citizen. My mom is the most patriotic person you will ever meet. Her love for this country is limitless. So there are no words to describe how big of a moment this was for her. Being a single mom, it took her a very long time to save money for the fees and study for the test. On the big day of her swearing in, my grandparents and I went with her to the LA Convention Center to watch her take her oath. We only have one picture from that day and it's been on the fridge for over 10 years. It was about time it found a more permanent place, worthy of it's importance.



I used the new "Glory" collection by Authentique. The muted colors are a beautiful contrast to what you normally get in a patriotic line.

Check out the Scrap it With a Song blog to see the Design Team's take on this song, check out the other challenges for this month, and even give one a try! Maybe you will be chosen to be next month's guest designer!

Thanks for reading! And mom, I am so proud of you.

XOXO,
