My Little Piece of America

My Little Piece of America... Simple Pleasures was a very easy page for me to put together. When I saw what the  assignment was I knew that I did not want to make a run of the mill, patriotic stars and stripes type of page, but rather something that reflects what America is to me.

My premise in life is "Simple", enjoy all the little,simple beautiful things around us. A sunrise at the beach, kids playing Baseball or the beauty of a waving flag. The song I picked is one I'm sure most of you won't know,as it  a patriotic song from the Boy Scouts of America,it is sung when they are at Scout Camp,and again, it's reference to simply being free and proud are what made me choose it.

I think it goes perfect with simple pleasures of America theme,e you enjoy it !

I love that you took a non-traditional route to this challenge and made it your own. The photos you chose really captured the essence of the challenge and you picked a wonderful song to include.

I love that you used the simplicity of every day life as your layout. What a great way to interpret this challenge. The photos are great!

Oh - I have to add - it looks like you, Andrea and I all have the same star punch! :)

Wow! This is so understated and yet, somehow, almost profound. I love it! Great work!

I love the images you chose, the fishing and baseball, etc. and that you chose to convey the "simple" side of America. The lyrics are lovely - I love that boys are singing these patriotic songs in Boy Scouts. (It seems like youth are lacking in devotion to country - as it is taught less and less in the schools.) My Cole will be starting Cub Scouts in the fall. :)

Hi Donna, good to see your work again!! What a big message too....gratitude. Yes there are a lot of majestic vistas and views across this great land, but it IS the Simple Pleasures we all live with on a day to day basis that we often take for granted because we do live in a land that is free, we are blessed, and we can be proud of that! You've shared that unique piece of America that is yours, thank you!
