I had a lot of fun doing this layout of my grandson Gavin watching the fireworks last year in Okinawa, Japan. The holiday is important to our family - not just for it's patriotic aspect - but because we have 4 people within our family that celebrate their birthdays on July 4 and 5th.
I chose the colors for Monica's July Summer Challenge at Memories, Always Forever. Click the link on my sidebar to take you to this great new site. This layout, though based on a digital layout by KellyCali at SB.com, uses so many of the supplies I had on hand. The circles are cut with my Wishblade, but any circle cutter would do the trick. I used lots of buttons as per the Pile It On Challenge blogspot. Here is list of my supplies.

Karen Foster Sparkle Burst Brads
