Finland Template Freebie

Sorry that today's digital scrapbooking freebie is so late in coming. I had a meeting this morning that took longer than expected. Then I discovered that one of my posts didn't have a country outline in it. So I wanted to correct that as soon as I could.

Finally, I am caught up! So here is the Finland Template. I discovered while researching the country that the swan was considered sacred in parts of the country so I decided to use it as the theme for the template.

Swan is the country's 'state bird' or in this case 'country bird', lily-of-the valley is the 'country flower'
'country animal' is bear, tree is birch and 'country rock' is granite. Finland is absolutely a beautiful country. Finnish people are very much nature people. The architecture, living style, interior decorating - everything is intertwined with nature. Even the flag colors are symbols of nature. '')

P.S. One more interesting fact: Finland is shaped like a lady with a head one arm, waist and a dress. It is sometimes referred to as 'Maiden Finland'. Did I mention how BEAUTIFUL Finland is?... '') Definitely a country worth visiting.
