Memorial Day - Red, White, & Blue

Hi Everyone!


Here is card created for a few challenges.  Frosted Designs Fabulous-friday-challenge  This week's challenge is to make a card, layout or project with an armed forces/patriotic theme! My Sheri Crafts Challenge - MEMORIAL DAY / VICTORIAN DAY, Cooking with Cricut - Memorial-day-challenge.


OK, so I probably need to explain the wagon... Every year for Memorial day we have a neighborhood block party. When my oldest was young the kids would decorate their bikes and parade up and down the street. When my youngest came along we got out the big red wagon and paraded.  Such fun memories...
