I bought this dress for my daugther a few weeks before Memorial day and she just looked so cute in it. She loved to play around and I loved that it was a perfect dress for both Memorial day, and the 4th of July. She was a total ham in these photos - can't you tell by her cubby cheeks?

I made this layout for the Cricut Circle Weekly Challenge #32. The challenge was to use the following sketch.

I used brown and red cardstock (SEI)

The red swirls is from My Minds Eye.

The solid blue is from the Paper company - and has a beautiful shimmer to it. I just love that paper.

I cut the Child on the Firecracker at 2 1/2" with the shadow function from "A Child's Year" cartridge. Pop dotted

The starts are cut at 2" and 2 1/2" also from "A Child's Year". (I made my own shadow for those stars). Pop dotted

The tag at the top corner is cut at 2" from "A child's Year" using the card function (layered a piece of red behind it).

The USA was cut from "Birthday Bash" at 1" and cut with a shadow.

I used chalk and distressing ink to give the edges a softer feel around the layered items. I wasn't happy with just the plain white.

The stars have some stickles on them to make them pop.

Well I hope you enjoy.

Happy Scrappin'
