Have a Happy 4th of July!  I have a scrapbook layout to share today.  We made this layout in my scrapbook class last week.  I’m actually going to put pictures from Memorial Day on it.  We went to Stone Mountain and watched the Laser Show and Fireworks there and I have pictures from that.  But this layout works for lots of summer events from Memorial Day to Labor Day.  So take you pick on what you want to use the ideas for.

I started with a layout idea from a scrapbook magazine.  I started with a Crumb Cake background and then used Real Red, Marina Mist and Whisper White to decorate the page.  There are pieces of Designers Series paper cut into little flags and then laid out to form a banner.  I cut them different lengths and then added some different little elements to the tops.  I used paper clips tied with bits of ribbon, some buttons tied with Whisper White Baker’s Twine and brads with little punched circles – the mini silver brads and some of the Marina Mist brads.

The bottom was wheeled with the So Many Stars Builder Wheel in Read Red.  On the right side page I added some fireworks – I searched the internet and found a template that I liked and used the new Paper Piercing Tool and Piercing mat to add the design to my page.  I put added rhinestones to make it sparkle.  Here is a close-up.

The title is cut with the Big Shot and I wheeled the letters with the So Many Stars Builder wheel too.  I think it turned out to be a fun layout and I’m excited to get my pictures on it.  Right now they are on my phone – I hope they are good enough to print.

Enjoy the 4th.  I’m going to go see my parents and spend the day with them.
