July Virtual Crop: Challenge 4

Hi everyone!

How many of you have spent the day in your pyjamas? Either way, I love that I am getting to spend the day with all of YOU! It is YOU that inspires ME!  The wheels are always turning! Chocolate always helps too!  I have my stash of chocolate almonds right here!  What is your chocolate treat of choice?

CHALLENGE 4: Create Monthly Borders–which can be used on any layout throughout the year!  If you don’t have the A Year To Remember Collection—no worries!  You can use any other product to create a monthly border, and then submit to the Virtual Crop Event Page to make sure that your name goes in the hat for door prizes!  Also, make sure to use the hashtag #cmjulyvirtualcrop  !!!
