July's ODBDLYLS7 Challenge
Now for the July Challenge!  Circle, circles, circles. Who doesn’t love a circle or two? We thought it would be fun this month to not only play with circles but to also play with your favorite color or a color in your photos. So, your challenge for this month is to: create a layout of any size using at least one circle, ODBD stamps, and your favorite color or a color in your photo(s). Your circle(s) can be included by using embellishments, the way you cut a photo, etc. Have fun!”

And here is my inspiration for you using this July Challenge. I chose colors from my photograph for my page, and I had fun with circles on the bottom of my layout.

8x8 Layout by Patter Cross
ODBD Products Used: Sweet William Small, Time

To see close-up photos, a complete supply list, etc., please visit my blog post by clicking my name just above the scrapbook page. Now, it is your turn to play! Here are the guidelines:

**You must use ODBD stamps on a scrapbook page of any size!
**Other stamps are allowed, but ODBD images need to be the focus!
**Use Keywords ODBDLYLS7 and ODBD when linking to SCS or other public galleries.
**The same keywords will be used for this entire month of July!
**To be eligible for the $25 gift certificate, leave a link to your creation here using Inlinkz.
**All entries for the entire month must be linked to this first post of the month using Inlinkz.
**If you use either your blog link or online gallery, please give a link back to this challenge page.

The challenge runs through Sunday, July 31st, at 6 p.m. Eastern. You have all month to enter. You can enter as many times as you like, just remember to link your creations to this first post. We will select a winner from ALL of the July scrapbook challenge entries for a $25 gift certificate to the ODBD Store! The winner will be announced with our new challenge that will begin Tuesday, August 2nd! Thanks for stopping by, and we can't wait to see what you create! Have a blessed day!
