What better way to celebrate the fourth than share a scrapbook page with my friends. I completed this page for a pagemaps challenge. I followed a sketch illustrated by Becky Fleck. I find the pagemaps blog is an excellent place to get inspiration when scrapbooking block acts up.
I took this picture of my layout in the evening so it's darker than I would like. For this page, I used glitter ribbon, cardstock, smooch spray, patterened paper and a Paper pretties sentiment, Dreams. The kite shape was printed on my computer and then I used that as a template to make the kites you see. The sun and clouds are SU stamp sets. I found the grapes and the smoke from circus train are perfect as clouds once they are embossed. Whatever works, right!
I hope you enjoy the page. Have a great day!!! Delia
