Happy Independance Day!

I hope all of my American pals are enjoying their National Holiday!!

Jenny Gropp is our Challenge Hostess this month and she has challenged Our Creative Corner, and anyone else who wants to play, to use RED, WHITE, and BLUE on our projects today...any shades, any style!

This week as a treat for playing in the Challenge we have one of the very swanky and Newly Released sets from The Cat's Pajamas - "Happy Camper" that will be awarded to someone that joins in this week's challenge. A very big Thank you to Alma at The Cat's Pajamas for hosting this week's prize and for creating some seriously swanky stamps for our stamping pleasure!

As it turns out, we will be painting my sons room red and blue, so I decided to make an inspirational plaque for him! I used this gorgeous sentiment from Unity Stamp Co.!

When I was finished, I showed it to him and he was just so excited that I made something just for, so sweet!! Apparently I need to make more things in his honor! (I usually let them make their own stuff!) My daughter has since made me promise to make her her very own stationary set for her new room!!

Stamps - Unity Stamp Co
Paper - Summer Picnic dp, real red, ww, pacific point
Ink - Staz On
Accessories - Brads, Eyelets, asst'd punches, nesties

We'd love it if you'd play along with us! Just remember to post back to the OCC Blog for a chance to win and if you upload on Splitcoast, be sure to use OCCC in your keywords!!
