Red, White, and Blue Just For You!

Hope the Fourth of July was a happy sparkly boomin good time for all! Ours was happy but no sparklin or boomin for us because of the ban on fireworks. We could have parked our car, boarded a bus and watched the professional show with thousands of others in a field but we don't do well in large crowds.
I have a layout to share with you that I created with the Apron Strings Designs Larger Than a Breadbox Kit. Everything on the layout is from the kit except for the "scale" I cut from the Pink Paislee's Hometown Summer papers that was in Apron Strings Kit last month.
I used a sketch from Sassy Lil' Sketches to scrap the pictures of my daughter Amory.
I also completed two more challenges with this layout. Crop Stop's Challenge #26 to make your projects using your national colors. Red, White and Blue, of course! The second challenge I completed was ScrapFit WWU #9 to create a layout, card or other project focusing on making embellishments from patterned paper. I cut out a "scale" (formerly a thermometer!) from pattern paper, and created pinwheels from pattern paper as well.
No Amount
Thank you for stoppin by and have a blessed day,
