TN Time With Lisa & Lori - July Challenge

 Hello, everyone! Happy Saturday to you! I hope you have had a good week. Scott was on vacation this past week and we got a few projects around the house done. We also puppy sat our "grandpuppy" while Abby's family went on a little getaway. It was fun to have a puppy in the house again but I am so glad it was only for a few days! You forget how much work a puppy truly is!

It is time for the July TN Time With Lisa & Lori challenge. Here is how it works - this is a just-for-fun monthly challenge that starts on the 10th of each month and ends on the 9th of the following month at midnight CST. If you complete my random challenge for the month - link your TN, bullet journal, or planner spread below. If you complete just Lisa's sketch challenge, link up over on her blog - My Creative Endeavors. If you combine both challenges - be sure to link up on both Lisa's blog and here on my blog. Now, on to the challenge.

Here is my July challenge:

For July my challenge is to use the color red and/or blue - your choice - on your layout and add a star - or stars - to your layout. The star(s) can be an embellishment, in the paper, etc. 

Here is the fabulous sketch that Lisa has created for us:

This is my layout:

Since we just celebrated the 4th of July, I had to scrap a photo of Ada with her sparkler. She had a special sparkler that was in the shape of a heart - and that thing put off a lot of "sparkles!" Ada wasn't too sure about it and eventually handed it off to her mom, but that look on her face, while she was holding it, was priceless!

I used Simple Stories' - Stars, Stripes, & Sparklers for this layout. I had included this mini-collection in my "Collective" to work with this summer. 

Here are a few close-ups:

I loved this little word phrase and thought it could not be any more perfect for this photo! 

I am so happy that I was able to ger one of these little flags on my spread. It's from a tiny pack of flags from Jolee's Boutique. The date on the package says 2002...I'm not sure if they have been in my stash that long, but I'm guessing it's close. I think I have three left before they are all gone. Maybe if I can get another 4th of July layout made, I can get them - and this mini collection - used up this month. 

I hope that you have some time to play along with us this month! Be sure to stop by Lisa's blog to see her beautiful spread, too.

Even though this is a just-for-fun challenge we do have a few rules:
