It's time for another Gem's of Inspiration Challenge over at Christian Paper Crafts. Due to some changes in the challenge schedule, the July Gem's of Inspiration didn't get posted on the 1st Thursday of July as previously scheduled, but you still have lots of time to complete this challenge.
Here in the U.S. we recently celebrated Independence Day, commonly known as the 4th of July. A little U.S. history…The 4th of July is a holiday commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain. Independence Day is commonly associated with all things red, white and blue, fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, family reunions, political speeches and ceremonies, and various other public and private events celebrating the history, government, and traditions of the United States.
This month’s inspirational gem comes from the 4th of July. Let this gem inspire you to create a layout incorporating one of the things commonly associated with July 4th. Your layout doesn’t have to be about July 4th at all, just about one of the things that is associated with the 4th. It could be a layout that incorporates red, white and blue, a picnic layout, a family gathering layout, a baseball layout… whatever you are inspired to create.
I was inspired by this gem to create a red, white and blue layout of our visit to the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia, PA.
