We loved seeing all the fabulous pages made with the Stars & Stripes Template in the gallery! Now on to August's Template Challenge! This month's challenge we are going a little bit retro. Kate named it "Cornered" as it reminds her of the old style of album pages. I couldn't agree more! So much so that I went "retro" with my page!
