Default Surprise Me Border Challenge

Welcome to the July Border Challenge! I took a little break from the Border Challenge, due to my personal schedule, but am glad to be back now! I really enjoy seeing the different perspectives that everyone has of a challenge theme and am looking forward to seeing what you do with this month's challenge!

Did you see theStudio Facebook Fan Freebie that Kimberly made, using Write Me a Letter?



I think it's adorable, and when we were chatting about it, I noted how it is a great example of using multiple borders effectively! I wanted to use this layout as a example, but since we're already done multiple borders, we needed to add a twist to it. I won't even tell you all of the crazy ideas that we came up with.. okay, that Kim came up with (you KNOW she is our resident cut-up, by her own admission, so I'm not telling secrets here!). But we settled on a simple Patriotic theme.

So your challenge this month is to create a border with a patriotic theme. We know that not everyone lives in the United States, where we are celebrating our country's independence on July 4th. But patriotism isn't limited to the USA! We anxiously look forward to your borders showing off your patriotism for YOUR country! What traditions do you follow? What are your country's colors? We cannot WAIT to see!!

So here are the rules:

* You may use any kit you wish.
* Post your layout in the Surprise Me Border Challenge Gallery
* Come back here and post your preview and a link to the Surprise Me Border Challenge Gallery in this thread. This makes it super simple for us to find your layouts in the gallery, and we thank you for taking this extra step!

What do you earn by participating? Well, theStudio offers a 10% discount on ALL of your purchases for the following month. So, if you participate this month and get a layout posted (AND post a link here in this forum), you will receive 10% off every purchase made next month! No coupons are required. The discount will automatically be applied to your purchase. How easy is that? And YES, this is on top of any sales prices too.

And I will do my best to see if I can't get Kim's adorable Quick Page for you for your participation... just in case you missed it on the blog!

I love this photo. This is a biker group of vets who were standing at attention at a parade as one of the armed forces groups marched by.

I used the 4th verse of the Star Spangled Banner. We don't usually hear it but I thought the lyrics were just right for today.

I have really enjoyed looking thru your layouts! It's good to see you back in the land of "Internet Connection," Jody! I loved reading the last verse of the Star Spangled Banner too. It's been a long time! Off to the gallery! Thanks, ladies, for your participation.
