Patriotic Theme: CCC #37

Hi you all and welcome to another Monday challenge over at Creative Cutting Challenge the theme this challenge is Patriotic. I created a layout from the pictures that we took last year:
Uncle Sam Hat Freebie - Click Image to ClosePatriotic Set - Click Image to Close I used 2 different cut files from Creative Pointe on my layout: I used the Patriotic set and the Uncle Sam Hat Freebie. I used the pennants of the Patriotic set for a border accent and the hat for some patriotic diecut action on the layout.

This layout was done with the last sketch from my sketch solution classes at BPC, we were to replace photos with elements but I loved the sketch for all the extra spots for photos that is what I did with it. 
The hat to 2.5" high and added a nice touch to the top corner of the layout and also right below the journaling spot. 

I resized the pennants to 2" wide and I used the pennants for a border accent. I did use a wee bit of my counterfeit challenge kit with the blue base of the pennants. The white cardstock and the red swirl paper for the photo booth style photos are from last month's kit.
 a closer took at the pennants. You could really do so many things with these.
I used a project life card for the edge of the photo for that lettering spot, I trimmed it up to fit the photo. We were enjoying the moment, they put on a good fireworks display each year and I think we found a new fun spot to see them and a short walk from the house.
