Blog Challenge Time!!!

Get ready with your cameras! It is almost the 4th of July!
Use those pictures...
or photos from a parade...
or military related...
or your child looking their patriotic best...
or your pictures from a very Americana place...


Don't want it to be patriotic? That is fine! Make it your own and surprise us!

But that is the challenge! Layouts using Red, White and Blue!

Here is what our designers came up with!

This picture is from a Memorial Day Parade in May. I love the Jenni Bowlin Patriotic cards, and thought they made a perfect match! And the flower by Prima was the perfect simple touch!
Kim uses Rusty Pickle, her favorite, with Cub Scouts! What could be more American then Cub/Eagle Scouts?
Speaking of the 4th... Rachelle G. uses these adorable sparkler pictures to remember the occasion...
Alisa visited Boston during the 4th... talk about American history!!
Tracy combined fireworks with color appropriate flowers! FUN!!
Post a link to your layout in the comments section, or drop by the store and have us snap a picture by July 25th, and you will be entered in a prize drawing!!

Come back soon to see who the June Blog Challenge winner is!! FUN!
