Theme Thursday -- Famous Faces

I just recently acquired this stamp of Mt. Rushmore with its famous faces, so I thought I'd use that and this image of George Washington I've had so long it just needed to finally be used!
(I know the map background is not correct geographically, but it was the only map paper I had of the U.S.)
You can see the rest of the submissions for this challenge at http://themethursday.wordpress.com/.

And now I'm off to watch American Idol to which I'm terribly addicted to see who the next famous face may be in the music world!

How perfect for famous faces. I saw the real Mt. Rushmore 2 1/2 years ago. I wasn't disappointed, but it did look different from what I thought it would. Love the stamp.

Great artwork, Louise--I'm addicted to American Idol, too--I really like Danny--don't understand the judges' infatuation with Adam, though!
