Design Team member Tamara has submitted this for the STARS and STRIPES challenge this month:
My stash is full of all kinds of red, white and blue. Perfect for some fireworks pics that were taken right in our own backyard. One of the benefits of living close to city hall. I used the back side of some old Flower pattern paper from SEI. The soft dots made a great background. I just added some blue bakers twine around my pics, added a July sticker, some SU ribbon, colored buttons and Pressed petals chipboard stars. I didn't have the right shade of red for my Wow so I painted http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifthe letters white. Added a tassel at the top to look like a firecracker and roughed up the edges to finish up my layout.
Now it's your turn to play! If you go here it will explain the details :)
