Independence Day...and a Challenge.



so while wandering through Etsy, i came across this lovely photo print you see above by the seller 'buckscountyframes'...and it kind of inspired me to scrap a photo from last year's 4th of July parade we used to attend. i just grabbed bits and pieces of red and blue papers i had in my scrap bin and started playing around...this is what i ended up with.




(it's really hard to get a good scan on white cardstock, so i apologize)



so my challenge to you is to use red white and blue on a layout...very simple, right? it could be about anything...it doesn't necessarily have to be about Independence Day. (i realize SC has lots of members who are international, but please don't let that stop you from playing along!) the only stipulation is that you use red, white & blue somehow.






i know how crazy busy everyone is this weekend, so i'll give you until NEXT FRIDAY, July 11th, to upload your work to the SC gallery. and i'm thinking a RAK just might be in order to the winner...






can't wait to see what everyone comes up with...and have a great 4th of July!!
