LO Inspiration: Independence Quotes

Hello Kiki fans! My name is Sara, aka SATW in digiland, and I'm here with my first-ever blog post for the wonderful Kiki Halbert. Tomorrow is Independence Day here in the USA, and I know that Canada Day was July 1st, so hopefully there are lots of photos to scrap from all the fireworks and family gatherings.

With that in mind, I thought I'd give you some quotes to inspire your Independence (or Canada) Day themed layouts. (However, since not everyone is from Canada or the US, I'm including a few non-patriotic quotes, too):

“A man's country is not a certain area of land, of mountains, rivers, and woods, but it is a principle; and patriotism is loyalty to that principle.” -George William Curtis

“Patriotism is easy to understand in America; it means looking out for yourself by looking out for your country” Calvin Coolidge 

"This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave."  -Elmer Davis 

“True independence and freedom can only exist in doing what's right.” -Bringham Young

“Mickey Mouse is, to me, a symbol of independence. He was a means to an end.” Walt Disney

“The beauty of independence, departure, actions that rely on themselves.” Walt Whitman

And here are some products to further inspire you. Kiki has beautiful paper packs in the traditional red, white, and blue, as well as a few in less traditional color schemes:
