All-American Showman Journal

I have always loved getting our issue of Country magazine….well, this last Christmas we received a subscription of Country Extra as a gift. I love the photos…they are so detailed, crisp and beautiful!!! When the last issue of Country Extra arrived, I knew I wanted to lift it…………….I fell in love with it!!!! It was the side of the red barn with a flag, wagon wheel and a window. I am sorry I can not get it to post!

I also used this inspirational piece from


I loved the red, white and blue theme and decided the two inspirational pieces could be combined!

So I set out constructing my LO……………I did not have red barn board paper so I decided to go digi. I also added the title with the computer. This hybrid LO was born…………..
