Trendy Twine July Challenge

See the LINKS above for my previous post for Today.  It's a busy month and I don't want you to miss a thing :)

Hi Everyone, it is my 1st post as a Trendy Twine DT Member and I am so Excited.  Today is a start of a new challenge over at Trendy Twine.

This month's challenge is to create a project using Red, White and Blue with Trendy Twine or any hemp or embroidery thread.  If you don't have any Trendy Twine then you may wanna check out the store, there are some sample packets to start you off with, which you are going to love.

I decided to make a LO:
12 x 12
Cardstock is Bazzill
DP is from Authentique
Embellishment Stickers K and Co
For the Blue Top Note  I used my Cricut Baby Steps Cartridge at 10"
For the Stars I used Cricut - Art Philosophy at 2.5" then I embossed it with the Cuttlebug Stars Folder and wrapped some Berry Red and Blue Berry Twine on the edge of the stars.


Okay make sure you check out what the rest of the DT has created over at the Trendy Twine Blog also to get all the details for the Challenge.

We are also having a giveaway all you have to do is "Like" Trendy Twine's Facebook Page and "Like" My Thought Exactly's Facebook Page for a chance to win.
Deadline is 11:00 pm CST, Wednesday, July 4th.  Winners will be announced the following week.

Wonderful layout. Do you have a big party and go to a parade. I use to love that when the boys were little. Hubby doesn't care for any of that.
All you page needs is some fun pictures of the family.
Hugs,
Linda
