It's been a bit cold this winter and one evening when it was particularly chilly I thought I would work on something that reminded me of warmer days so I chose to do a 4th of July layout. I got the "map" from the Scrapbook Page Maps 2 book. I really love those books for ideas for layouts!
Make The Cut
Varies Pattern Paper
I have had this paper for a few years and can't remember who makes it right off the top of my head but I loved that it was a bit darker than most papers for the 4th of July. The words on the paper also just seemed to fit the occasion since we were having a cookout at my Aunt Betty's house that day.
I didn't like how the title looked after I got it cut but since I already had it done and didn't want to waste paper I used it. I had to play around with the firecracker to get it where it looked good. I might have cut it a bit big for the page but it's done just the same.
On my cuts the top of the rocket was white and I cut it off with some scissors because I wanted the top to be red. I can't remember if I fixed the file for that or not but you can check it out if you download it.
