Happy Canada Day everyone!!!!
Sorry I am late with my post... seriously it has been one of those days!!  Lucky tomorrow is a holiday so I get another chance for the weekend!
Lasting memories has another great challenge going on this week... 

This week we are being sponsored by...

Since I am Canadian... I went for the red and white but I did throw in the blue button for my American and British friends!

I used CTMH stamp and cricut cart art philosophy for the small leafs, Destinations for the large maple leaf and the font is Alphalicious 

 I struggled with this LO today - my cricut was going crazy and not doing what it was suppose to do... when through four sheets of red and white paper.... argghhh 
when out bough a new blade - came back found out it was the cheap paper!!!
no more from Walmart for me!! 
(well maybe for the background - lol)
