08/23/17 - "The 4th 2017"

It's just me, trying to keep up w/ my commitment to myself to share some of my completed layouts.
Hope all is well!
"The 4th 2017"

"Fourth of July in our neighborhood means sparkly fireworks both on the ground and in the sky; yes the illegal kind, what do you expect in San Bdno?! Note: the illegal ones are not ours! Also the only day a year I can wear my 4th of July Snoopy T-shirt"

Most items are from one of the 4 kits from the July "The ScrapRoom" kit (see bottom left):

Two Fun Facts about this page:
1) Fourth of July photos are rare as I hardly ever, like mostly never, take photos on the Fourth now that the kids are pretty much grown; I didn't take a whole lot of photos when they were younger either though...because there's only so many photos of kids watching fireworks or playing w/ sparklers you can take before it's becomes "old"
2) Of the photos I did take, and created layouts for, I hardly ever used a traditional Red, White, and Blue color combo
I broke both those rules here... and I'm actually happy about it!
