And just to keep things unchanged from previous years here is my inchie and this week our country is America so what do I think of the USA ....Christopher Columbus, the mayflower, the pilgrim fathers, the war of independence/ 4th of July the stars & stripes of old glory, New York the big Apple & the Statue of Liberty, Washington, Texas, Niagara Falls, the Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, the Great Plains, Miami's Art Deco, New Orleans, the Golden Gate Bridge,cowboys and Indians & wagon trains, burgers, diners, the Mississippi, the Keys, Disney, Micky Mouse, Popeye, marvel comics, grits, PBJ, blue jays & red cardinals, football Sunday, popcorn, root beer, Elvis, Memphis, Nashville, Dolly Parton.....and last but not least my stepchildren and their families because they both married Americans! I've chosen to use some more of dad's stamps and in this case it's the Bald Eagle with the stars & stripes,the liberty bell of Philadelphia and president George Washington 


  1. Love your mixed media pages, you've used beautiful colours! Your Inchie-stamps are perfect for the USA-prompt.

  2. Very nice stamps for this week USA theme.

  3. Great journal pages and inchie stamps. I don't know how to do so many journal pages, I struggle with one.

  4. Lovely stamp inchies, I really like your rhino! I am still working on my art journal. It's all done except the pages...I need a feww sheets of good weight A3 water colour paper and that means a trip to town...soon, I hope. Hope you are keeping warm, you seem to have been getting some weather lately, Dx

  5. The journal pages are awesome. Love the Bowie comment. The inchie is great. Love all the things that you mentioned about America as well
