Holiday scrapping!

I know people are already posting Halloween, fall, and even Christmas pages, but I'm a bit behind!  :)  So I am sharing a 4th of July page with you today!  I posted a challenge on the message board to use holiday photos (from any holiday), but use a paper line that ISN'T holiday related.

When I first saw some of the prints from the Fancy Pants Everyday Circus collection, I thought the reds, creams, teal, and navy would be perfect for July 4th photos.

I took the burst papers, cut our a large circle, then cut away some of the spokes of the burst to create a "firework" element.  I stitched over it with some gold thread and added some white die cut stars around the page along with some buttons and a tag from the Everyday Circus line.

I die cut my title on my Silhouette, and added a few gold glitter enamel dots and gold star stickers to add some sparkle!
