4th of July Layout - A Child's Year

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.


  1. What wonderful layouts Maureen! (Love her little 4th of July outfit in the pictures too!!) I am definitely going to scrap lift your Artbooking layout-love the flag effect with the red strips behind the overlay! Hope you have a great holiday weekend!

  2. I think both of these layouts are sooo amazing! The pics are so sweet and so is that beautiful grand daughter! I love those silhouettes from Child's year and how you added the flag sticker. The overlay on the Artbooking layout is so pretty and it was such a good idea to use the red and white color behind it! Nice job!!
