Happy 4th of July!

The 4th of July is a big celebration for our family. We spend most of the day together just hanging out, having good conversations, and eating good food. So I normally have a lot of pictures of this event. I took over 100 images and narrowed it down to just 28 to edit.

One of my most favorite things to do when I have this many pictures I love for a certain layout is to print Walgreens photo collages and cut the smaller pictures apart. You can get as many pictures as you want (of course the more you put on there, the smaller the picture will be) printed on a 4x6 area for just 29 cents!

So having a lot of pictures for this layout, I thought that Sketchy Thursday's sketch this week was awesome and would totally work for me!

Here is my layout. I used Bo Bunny's 4th of July themed papers for my layout. I put Pacific Point and Real Red cardstock with them!

I just love this half circle detail that was in the sketch!

And here is where you can see my collage prints in action. I just had 3 pictures printed on one 4x6 area. And I left them connected together like a photo strip you would get from a photo booth!

Journaling Reads: "We spent the 4th of July at the Ryden's house. Family and friends were invited. We always have so much fun!"

Then of course I had more photos that wouldn't fit on this layout. So I created a 6x12 scrapbook page that I will put in an American Crafts page protector in the middle of this layout in my scrapbook.

Journaling Reads: "This was Brooke's first year to participate in breaking the pinata. She loved it and got some Smarties to munch on. Yum!"

And on this page I left enough room for some more journaling and this picture...

Walgreens can't seem to get it to print without a little blue spot on her cheek, which you can see is not on the original image! This one is just too cute not to include!

Well I hope you liked my layout! I can't wait to get back to my craft room tomorrow to create more!
