Sesquicentennial July 4th Layout-Funday Friday challenge

Happy Friday to you :) It's Funday Friday and Today over at Jo's Scrap Shack our challenge is Always Anything Goes. Our sponsor this week is Little Blue Button Stamps. I had gotten Vintage recipe printable cards. I love to use their printables on layouts this particular set is great for journaling, fussy cutting the edge that was not needed but kept the rest for a fabulous journal block that I printed big enough to cut in half and add journaling to both sides of the layout. Here is the double page layout I created using it:
 This was a work in progress layout with the right side getting done 2 weeks ago for that Funday Friday and now the other side for this week's Funday Friday Challenge. These were pictures of us enjoying a bit of the 4th in Downtown Williamsport for the 150th Anniversary. We never been there for this festival so it was a good day to check it out. Using my 100 Pattern Paper challenge pile for the background paper and the rest of the paper came from scraps on my craft desk.
I used the sketch from last month over at Let's Scrap for inspiration for this layout:
One of the only challenge sites left offering just double page layout inspiration.
 This is the side I created this week, lots of layers with the matting and that long banner was fun to create and gives a festive look.
 The opposing side I created 2 weeks ago :) Some pictures I got from when we were exploring Downtown Williamsport, times have changed since I was a kid and went downtown often, cool to see so much artwork in the brick of the buildings.
 Using the clock journaling card for the theme of the layout to add my journaling

  1. What a great sketch to work with Tina, I love, love, love how your layout turned out! Looks like downtown Williamsport has a pretty nice celebration on the 4th. So I'm loving seeing the photo's. Also love your take on the sketch, wonderful papers used, love those photo corners, the title is awesome, love the bunting at the bottom and love the journaling on each side. Glad you had a great 4th. Rained here most of the day. :-( Well done! Hugs, Brenda

  2. Fabulous layout! You were able to fit so many photos in and those little journaling blocks are perfect! Sorry I am soooooo late in commenting, life got busy for a while!
