A 4th of July Layout for the CCChallenge #17

 Happy Memorial Day! Thank you to the service men and women that have or are still serving. Thank You!

Here is the last challenge for Creative Cutting Challenge-off for Summer break. The theme is anything for 4th of July. I decided to do a 2-page scrapbook layout:
 I created the layout from this sketch:
 I used the heading, the flag banner as a tip for the arrow and a couple of stars from the Patriotic set: 
 Patriotic Set - Click Image to Close
This isn’t your typical 4th of July layout, but the cuts from the Patriotic set gives a 4th of July feel to the layout.

This is what we did 4th of July in 2012. Since it was on a Wednesday we were treated to availability to get to the Lewisburg Farmer's Market, took a leisurely drive towards home stopped in Milton to check out the old train station and then home with the boughten treats at the market for the boys. It was a fun day. Since we both worked the next day, there wasn't a chance to see the firworks that night.
The materials I used in the layout was from the My Mind's Eye American Made collection, the background paper was in my drawer of blues papers so it probably came from a swap or a paper pad but not sure of who made it. The Navy blue paper was from a scrap. the journaling block came from a creative memories pack I have.
Check out the challenge over at Creative Cutting Challenge blog and join in on the fun.

Thanks for stopping by and see the view from my little corner of the world....
