Red, White, & Blue Challenge @ Paper Playtime starts today!

Pause Dream Enjoy Ch#26: Footprints... Click here

Good morning! It's the first Monday of the month and that means it's time for Paper Playtime's die cut challenge! For Ch#78 Use any type of die cut and the colors RED, WHITE, and BLUE. This does not have to be a patriotic project, but it can be if you want it to.

Our sponsor for this challenge is GINGER SNAPS SCRAPS with a $10 Gift Card! Anyone WORLDWIDE can win, so be sure and get your entry in! Pop over and visit her store by clicking here... I wish I could win.... but I can't.... there's so much I wish I had in this store! :)

I made 2 projects for this challenge using GOOGLE to search for FREE COLORBOOK PAGES. Now, I know what you are thinking... but I thought this was a die cut challenge. Well, you are right; it is. So I added a SUN die cut from the DOODLECHARMS cartridge. See? It's easy to mix and match. Come play with us! CLICK HERE to play.
