Memories of the 4th...
We were all together again - with the girls as a bonus- and even a girlfriend. It is just about as good as it gets...except the 100+ temperatures. I do not take these times together for granted. Every day is a gift and every opportunity to just hang out together is savored. We are so blessed to have a sense of family in this crew. We thank God for them.
Laughter, books, cards, watching the "fashion show", "fair food" from the vendors and the best fireworks show in the state made for a great time. I caught some fun shots of the fireworks display using my 50mm lens.
This layout was started in Memory Mixers and finished in PSE9. Fast and fun. The sparkle alphabet is from a Christmas Alphabet ant the fireworks are from a New Year's Eve Kit. Don't forget to think outside the box when looking at seasonal kits. I find that many cross over to other celebrations. No sketch - I started with the photos and played with sizes to get all of these pictures on one page. 14 pictures on a one page layout is just about a record for me!
Stay cool my friends.
