I don't have any photos that need scrappin' for Canada Day, July 1st, so I decided to do a little journal page about my first ten years in Canada. I became a citizen in 1986, and wanted to be able to tell my daughters the story of how we came to Canada and a bit about some of the places I've lived, and why it's so important to be to be Canadian. The embellishment is a famous Canadian-ism, "I AM Canadian". It's from a tv commercial, that went viral in the days before viral was.... well... viral. LOL
Here's the LO, and the video. Happy Canada Day!

Font is Tinkertoy, printed on vellum. Most other supplies are bits and pieces from my left-over drawer! Gotta love using up that stash!

I love clean and simple scrapbooking, and I think this is a good example of having pictures the most important part of the page, but having clean and elegant lines. Plus, it has some of my favorite things :-)
