stars and stripes

Hello! Happy 4th of July!

Dropping in to share my lo created for the Blue Fern Studios July sketch challenge....

'stars and stripes'

As soon as I saw these beautiful stars from Blue Fern Studios just in time for the July 
challenge I knew right away that I wanted to create a lo about July 4th.
I found this photo of Liam at our town's annual Independence Day parade a few years ago.

I just kept the chipboard simple with some white acrylic paint as I wanted it to 
stand out against the red and blue.

Here is the beautiful sketch for July...

Remember you don't have to use the exact same chipboard that is in the sketch, any
Blue Fern Studios chipboard or paper is fine, and you have until the end of the 
month to win a great prize pack!

See some of the gorgeous work by the design team using this sketch here.

I am so happy and proud to live in this amazing country....we have so very much to be thankful for ;)
There are so many places in the world where people aren't free...
feeling so fortunate to have my sweet little American boy.

I hope you enjoy this beautiful summer weekend, wherever you are in the world!

Big hugs, Lisa xoxo
