4th of July layout

I decided to create this layout for a handful of challenges. This was definitely a fun layout. I just LOVE 4th of July! We have our little family tradition of riding our bikes to the town parade. For a few years the boys enjoyed riding their bikes in it but then they realized they wouldn't get to collect candy! So they sit on the sidelines with us now! We also decorate our bikes the week before. This layout is back from 2008. This particular year our neighborhood had a block party after the parade where we closed the street, rented a bounce house, blew up an inflatable water slide and lined the road with grills, food and chairs! Once it got dark our neighbor brought over his guitar and played some songs for us while we roasted marshmallows over a fire pit. Good times!

This layout is for the following challenges:

Peachy Keen Stamps Let's Face it Friday Challenge - Patriotic
My Craft Spot Challenge #13 How Sweet It Is - Have a sweet treat somewhere on project
Getting Cricky with K Andrew Simply Sunday Let's Face it Challenge
Whimsical Wednesday Let's Get Patriotic Challenge

Here is what I created :)

I really had a lot of fun putting this little layout together. It went together so quickly and it really didn't need too much!

Lyrical Letters cart - Fireworks
Mini Monsters cart - candy
Peachy Keen Stamps Everyday Character Faces
DCWV Summer Time Paper Pack
Hobby Lobby - 4th of July bling
Creative Memories Star Punch
Bakers Twine, Stickles
