2 in 1 week

Wow!!! I am loving this!!!!! I had a ton of fun making this layout. This weeks song at Scrapping the music is Who Says by Selena Gomez. I have to admit I love this song, but I wouldn't be me if I didn't try to take a unique look at the song. At first I went through all my pictures trying to "feel the sap". Then I read the lyrics and saw the line..."Who says you’re not presidential?" I remembered seeing this picture of a project my little sister did at school umpteen gazillion years ago.Then I went online in search of pictures of the real Bush from 1988. This weeks sketchabilities sketch ended up being perfect.

Details: All of the patterned paper is from my Minds Eye (different pads)
             All of the die cuts are by K&Company

This layout also qualifies for:
                  Practical Scrappers: layout contest
                  Getting scrappy challenge: anything goes

    What a cool interpretation of the song! And how artfully patriotic! I really like how you repeated the circles and the curves.
