For the first week of this contest, here is your challenge:
Your subject is "an American Child." This does not have to be your title. You may interpret it how you want and use any colors you would like for your layout, but you must add stars and stripes to your layout.
You will have until Monday, June 21 at 3 pm to upload this first challenge in the official entry thread. If you need a reminder about the rules, they are listed here.
Here is the layout I created for this challenge... I used a star border punch and a silver star sequin along with the striped measuring tape paper.
We can't wait to see what awesome ideas you all come up with for this first challenge! Be sure to upload your layout no later than Monday June 23rd by 3pm CST.
