The Day We Celebrate Freedom by Esther

Freedom is the topic of the two-page layout that focuses on Juneteenth. It is the 19th day of June that people in Texas and the South learned of Black persons being set free from slavery. This is a holiday that is still celebrated over the United States. The cardstock had the theme "The Day We Celebrate". A red chipboard letter is used to begin the word Freedom and the diecut negative is used to complete the spelling. The diecut is from My Mind's Eye's Celebration Banner and mounted on the blue side of Moxxie's Star-spangled for contrast. The red of Echo Park cardstock was used to cut the state shape for Texas.

The right page is made from striped blue and a striped red cut smaller. The stripes by Moxxie were used across both sheets to tie the pages together. Ribbon is used on the left with a mini tag hanging from it. On the right is a banner and a large journaling shape that are cut double and adhered to show both. Red stars and ribbon are used for accents and Jenni Bowlin sticker stars are on the right spelling Juneteenth. Journaling was printed and attached with sparkly star brads.
