Scrap it with a Song - Our Country by John Melloncamp

We are celebrating Election Day at Scrap it with a Song.
This week the challenge is Our Country by John Melloncamp.

This is a great song! No matter if you are a Democrat
 or a Republican - this is our country!!

I used the sketch at Sketchabilities for my page.

I was really excited to create my page for this week. I used part of the lyrics "I can stand beside ideals I think are right, and I can stand beside the idea to stand and fight"

This election was my son's (Larz) first time to vote. I have tried to tell him over the years how important it is to take advantage of our right to vote.  I am proud that he voiced his opinion. He had to do an absentee ballot since he just recently moved to another county, so I made him pose with his ballot. The soldier on my page is my wonderful husband Mike, when he served our country in Iraq. I will be eternally grateful to him and all our soldiers that have fought over the years.

I hope you join us this month at Scrap it with a Song. You have until November 30th to post your creation.

Have a great day ~ Shelley
