We Love The 4th Of July


I created this layout for Layout Challenge Friday on the Bo Bunny Blog! I really loved the sketch, and I also loved another feature on their blog this week, Mixing Collections. Not only did I mix collections, but I used collections that don't have ANYTHING to do with the 4th of July! I used Whooligans, Crazy In Love, and Cambridge on this layout, and I LOVE the way it turned out! I added a lot of stitching, I detail cut the harlequin from a Cambridge paper, and I circle punched the pops of color from a Whooligans sheet. The stars are Cambridge chipboard, and I stamped a journaling stamp on another Whooligans paper! The red strip of paper, and the word "love" in the title are both from Crazy In Love! I sanded the edges of the photos, and I did a lot of distressing on the papers. I seriously had the best time putting this layout together!! You can click on it to see it larger!

I hope you're having a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

Love your take on the sketch! What a great mix of products! I would have never thought to use the Whooligans with the others. It looks great! Thanks for playing along!
