I am so glad that I am on the Bitten by the Bug Design Team. It gives me lots of incentive and makes me strive to try new formats and projects. I finally am getting to the 4th of July layouts from 2012. This week, Michelle is leading the challenge "Independence Day", and I have to show off. My first layout is of my granddaughter trying to figure out what to do with sparkler boxes and just being darn cute. I used A Child's Year for the icons, and Carousel for the wording. I put a non-Cricut cardboard die cut from my stash for color and had a flag sticker just the right size to add bling to the boy with wagon.
The 2nd layout was easy to put together. I really like the overlays on the Artbooking cartridge, so I cut it almost at maximum size. I got an idea to put red stripes behind the overlay, giving it an American flag look. The pictures are of my husband, the grandma-in-law, and myself all with the grandbaby.
Come on over to BBTB2 and link up your 4th of July project or layout.
