I had a lot of fun doing this layout of my grandson Gavin watching the fireworks last year in Okinawa, Japan. The holiday is important to our family - not just for it's patriotic aspect - but because we have 4 people within our family that celebrate their birthdays on July 4 and 5th.
I chose the colors for Monica's July Summer Challenge at Memories, Always Forever. Click http://alwaysforever.ning.com/ to take you to this great new site. This layout, based on one by KellyCali at SB.com, uses so many of the supplies I had on hand. The circles are cut with my Wishblade, but any circle cutter would do the trick. I used lots of buttons as per the Pile It On Challenge blogspot. In addition to the buttons, there are eyelets, brads, rhinestones and Liquid Pearls applied to the circles and strips. This was so fun to do!
