Happy Birthday USA!!!

Well hello there fellow bloggers, I am back!  I had taken an unexpected mini vacation from blogger, ok maybe not so mini.  Alot of things going on in this scrappers life. I have been making cards and layouts, just have not made time for the bloggin.  But the 4th is one of my two favorite holidays....the first being Christmas of course.  And OWH had a couple of free digi's for a middle of the week throw down I had to show you what I came up with.  The stamps were provided by Tracey fo The Stamping Boutique. I did combine this with a few other challenges over at Paper Craft Planet.  I love PCP, they have so many groups to help you create beautiful projects.  Now I am an American girl thru and thru...I take pride in my country!  My daddy was in the Marines in the early 1960's, and he was my hero in many ways.  So I tried to get the colors to match the Marine Dress Blues in honor of him.  And I want to say Thank You to all our troops who are serving, whether it be here, or over seas, on the front line, or at a desk.  They all serve a purpose!!!  I hope you enjoy.....

I decided to use only one digi stamp for the OWH challenge, the solider in front of waving flag!
One of three challenges from PCP was the sketch challenge, sk062610, as seen above.
 The second of three PCP challenges was for the Color Challenge, pcpcolor73, to use any shade of Red, White and Blue in honor of the 4th of July.

The third and final PCP challenge was from a new group I joined recently, The Cuddlebug-ers.  Their challenge was a double embossed, with the second embossing at an angle....which as you can see I forgot about the angle  Oh well it's all in fun.
