This is Karen and I am back with a Mix and Match page for July.
A few months ago, my kids were playing with chalk in the front yard and asked me to take their picture hugging. They didn't have to ask me twice. I then used the photos as fodder for my next page, of course. The
photos have green, black and red in them so I wanted to see if I could make a page that had only those three colors. I thought using Chalk Studio to document a day of sidewalk chalk would be fun.

Just to prove that no MME line can be too old to use, the red fleece behind the photos comes from the Kraft Funday line! My challenge to you this month is to use one of your oldest MME lines on a layout. And if
you do, link me up in the comments, I'd love to see it!
