"6 Boys and a Tent = No Sleep" Layout 

With all the jubilee celebrations this year, red white and blue was the choice for the teenage birthday celebrations. 

Louise's supplies: Patterned red paper from dilly dally 6 x 6 pad,  Glitz and Jenni Bowlin alpha stickers, Martha Stewart scalloped circle punch to create the bunting.

"A Jubilee Party" Layout

Jennifer's supplies include: Prima fairy belle 6x6 papers, alphas, flower, and chipboard, Dear Lizzy roller date stamp, Cosmo Cricket Tiny Text life stickers  and Papermania Portobello Road papers.

I wasn't sure at first whether I could combine the baby blue and the royal blue hues on one page, but as they were both in the photo I thought I'd give it a go, and I like it! I added some cream rather than more white as it softens the blues and red, and helps to keep it girly!

"Bond -  A Very British Hero" Layout

This layout is about one of our trips to Beaulieu to see their new exhibition entitled "Bond - a very British hero"! The exhibition is 50 iconic vehicles to celebrate 50 years of Bond films. I kept the photos apart from each other because they are quite busy as are the papers.

We look forward to seeing your red, white and blue projects!!

Please remember to link directly to your blog post and to include a link back to the challenge.

If you do not have a blog, please e mail your entry to me at I'll upload it for you.

Good Luck and have fun!!
