Happy July 4th!

Hello!  For all of you celebrating July 4th, we're using our patriotic colors for this week's My Time Made Easy Challenge. For my entry today, I've used the Star of the Show template to creat this star shaped box to fill with some goodies.  To finish it off I used the polka dot paper from October Afternoon's 5 & dime collection.  The perfect little hostess gift for a July 4th get together!  I hope you all having a wonderful time with lots of family and friends.

Be sure to check out the design team member's creations as well:

Here's the detail on how the challenge works:

•You can use the palette on ANY type of project! While participation with products from My Time Made Easy ™ LLC is appreciated, it is not required to participate. You can use products from ANY company.

•Each week we will pick a winner from the palette participants and announce them the following week, when the next Pretty Palette Challenge is announced.

•The palette month will run from the 2nd Sunday of every month, to the 2nd Saturday of the following month, with the Winner announced that 2nd Sunday of the Palette Challenge.

PRIZE PACKAGE: Whoever plays along all month, in all 4 Palette Challenges within the month, will be entered to win a Pretty Package of THEIR Choice! Make sure on the 4th week of the challenge, that you leave a comment linking all 4 projects as well, so we are sure we do not miss you!

That little box is adorable! That little tag on the diagonal is the perfect touch. I haven't branched out to paper crafts beyond cards yet but this might be the project that gets me to do it. :) Have a fab long weekend!
