Hello, it is Stacy here to share with you my July Red, White and Blue Challenge. I'm not sure there could be an easier challenge here in the U.S. for July since we celebrate our Independence Day and our colors are Red, White and Blue.
I have 5 kids and everyday they come home with some kind of artwork. I never know what to do with it all. I usually just pick my favorites and toss the excess when they aren't around. They usually forget about it after a while so don't notice. (or at least don't mention it)
The other day my 5 year old ds came home with the coolest piece of art. I decided it would be PERFECT for my Scrap Our Stash July Project! He painted this really cool "flag" at school and I just loved the look and texture of it. I asked him if I could have it and add it to my layout. Lucky for me he said yes. He was actually pretty thrilled. ha Now I will have this art preserved for all time and he will be able to look back and see what he made. Unfortunately the ironic thing is that he isn't on the layout at all! He was sick and didn't go to the parade. But at least his art made it on there! lol
So as I mentioned I ended up using some photos of 3 of my kids from the 4th of July parade in Edmond, Oklahoma last year. It was an overcast day and we were super lucky because it didn't start raining until right after we got in the car to leave!
Some other paper I used was We R Memory Keepers Yankee Doodles and The Paper Studio All Seasons pack. I fussy cut some stars out of a sheet from the Yankee Doodles and also used star Pillow Stickers from K & Co. -Americana.
It came together easy as pie. (is pie easy?!) lol
Now it is your turn to show us your July Red, White and Blue Challenge. See all the details HERE!
