Independence Day Sparkle Layout

In honor of the 4th of July fast approaching I wanted to share a festive layout using Doodlebug Design Inc. Stars and Stripes line.  I had this picture of my daughter from an Independence day parade a few years ago and the dress she is wearing is perfect for this paper.

The red piece of patterned paper is actually the back side of the sheet that comes with the package of pinwheels.  The front shows samples of the pinwheels but back side has a smaller print of this fun paper.

I added stickles to the star shaped brads to add a little sparkle around the page.

Here's a close up of the title and the paper curls.  I love making these curly strips, so easy and fun.  Check out my 4th of July Rosette Bouquet post for how to make the curls.
