I did this for the Scraplift Challenge in August, 2009, scraplifting the layout "Proud to be an American" by scrappingirl, which can be found here: https://gingerscraps.net/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=6355
I really liked how she used the worn paper so the outside edges were not "even" - she didn't even put a paper under it! To me, that was brave, outside the box! I also like her use of white space, though I was not all that faithful to it - I have the hardest time leaving white space! I used the kit Secret Garden by Just For You Digi Scraps which can be found free on her blog.
