July Fourth America - New Layout

Happy Sunday! It looks to be a cooler, rainy day today. The grass and garden are loving the rain. I finished this layout this morning from the 4th of July - THIS YEAR! Wow, what am I think scrapping something current? Anyways, this is a layout using my July Kit Club from Embellishkits.com. I wanted to do a layout to play along with all of the July challenges for red, white, and blue layouts and this worked perfect.



I played along with Frosted Designs - Fabulous Friday to use twine, ribbon and washi (use at least 2). I used two different rick rack ribbon and twine tied around the star at the top left.  

I also played along with S.W.A.T. - July Red, white and blue challenge.  

Along with same colors for the Scrap Our Stash - July challenge, you are to use at least 3 pre-made stars and craft is the only other color paper you can use.  I used three pre-made chipboard stars and inked around the edge. This challenge runs through July 29th, so there is still time to play along!

One more challenge I played along with was Sketches 4 All - Cheryl's Holiday Challenge - show your colors. Our colors in the US are red, white and blue.  

Finally, I played along with Colorful Creations - Anything Goes July challenge.  This challenge is to use red, white, blue and a second challenge is to use stars and stipes.  I think I hit this challenge on the head, LOL!
Here are a couple of close-ups:



Materials Used: Paper - Echo Park and Bella Blvd; chipboard - Bella Blvd; flags - Bella Blvd; journaling blocks - Bella Blvd; Rick Rack - Wrights; twine - unknown.

Thanks for visiting!
