Celebrate July 4th

I have 3 challenges to enter this layout in that I completed this afternoon.    We had a great viewing of several business sponsored fireworks display from our dock at the Lake of the Ozarks but then the
best was to our left and our right from neighbors with their huge displays.   We loved it all.

First I used the 6 photo sketch for challenge #505 at   "LASTING MEMORIES"

2nd is wanted to play along with challenge #203-Stars & Strips at "THE PAPER GIRLS CHALLENGE"  so I kept that in mind when I picked out the papers to use for my layout.

Challenge #203 - Stars and Stripes

Since we just celebrated Independence Day this past weekend here in the US, I thought it would be fun to include some stars and stripes on your projects. They do not have to be patriotic projects - you just need to use stars and stripes on your project.

Then last but not least, another challenge that came out today is the new challenge at  "In The Stars" at  "BITTEN BY THE BUG"    I added 8 different stars for embellishments on my layout, in different colors, styles and sizes.


Hello Cricuteers!! Connie Can Crop here with my next challenge for the BBTB2 Design Team. 

We just celebrated 4th of July here in America and Canada celebrated July 1st. So let's create any type of project that includes at least 3 different size STARS. They can be any color but must be different sizes and cut with your Cricut. And yes you may use more than 3.


  1. Wonderful layout and I am impressed how quickly you documented the 4th. Thanks for joining our challenge on Bitten by the Bug 2.

  2. Beautiful layout! The bg paper is so perfect with all those fun stars and pics. Thanks for joining us at bbtb2.

  3. Such a great layout! I grew up at Lake of the Ozarks and recall many a 4th watching from the dock or out on the water. We could always see fireworks from up and down the lake from the dock, and sometimes would boat over to watch the TanTarA or Four Seasons shows. Brings back good memories! Documenting those fun memories is the best part of scrapbooking-love how your layout turned out with the pictures!
