Canada Day, Eh?

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a Canada Day scrapbook layout featuring the Oh Canada dingbat font designed by Suzanne Cannon and available in the Silhouette Design Store.

If you're not familiar with dingbat fonts, they are similar to other fonts except that shapes and symbols take the place of what would normally be letters.  You download the font, double click and select install, and your computer adds it to your font library.  This Oh Canada font features 26 Canadian icons to print or cut - here are some of them.  Absolutely perfect for Canada Day, and of course you can make them any size or colour that you want.  

After installing the font, I cut the title Canada eh? and a handful of other shapes out with my Silhouette Cameo.  I am particularly enamored with the moose.  Such a beautiful silhouette!  With the variety of Canada themed dingbats available in this font, you really don't need any other embellishment.  Just pick your favourites, cut them out and use them to adorn your Canada themed photographs.  Happy Canada Day!!  Hope you all get out and enjoy it.

P.S.  I had saved my volunteer badge and lanyard from last year, so I added that memorabilia as well.
