Christmas in July

Yes, I know America just partied like it was 1776 and that fireworks and snowflakes don't really go together... but it is Christmas in July all ready, and over at Celebrate the Occasion we are pulling out the Christmas glitter here (minus the red) I chose to make a Christmas Tag. The rules were no RED. This was tough. I pulled out my Christmas stash of scrapbook supplies and found that pretty much every little embellishment or paper I had had red. Hmmmm. So I improvised. I used glitter paper and stickers, stamps, pearls, rub ons, lace, a prima bauble, a flower I made from an old book that fell apart when I was reading it, and a clock I cut from bobunny paper. Here is my lack of red end result. It was a challenge this time for me, but I love a good challenge and thanks to the creative celebrate the occasion team- you can see what the rest of the design team came up with.



I hope you all go and enter the Christmas in July challenge with NO RED- it was a blast and I can't wait to see what our creative followers come up with :)
