Happy 4th of July everyone! For my turn hosting the blog I thought I'd share a few layouts that I've created for this holiday. This morning my family and I are heading out for the first part of our annual July 4th tradition--a kid's fun run, in the historic town of Concord, MA. This was my daughter's first roadrace and I'm hoping it will be a life-long love. Naturally I scrapped the occasion, using her race tag as both a title and embellishment. Even thought there's nothing intrinsically patriotic about a road race, using red, white and blue (and stars) gives a pretty good indication that we were celebrating independence day.
No July 4th celebration would be complete without fireworks and this blog post is no exception! Last year our town put on a huge festival culminating with a fireworks display--it was amazing!
I only wish I had studied how to take better photographs of the fireworks. Here's a couple of links to online tutorials on how to photograph fireworks:
I'm going to leave you with one more layout, showcasing those little details that make the day special. I'm a big fan of all the decorations (show me a scrapbooker who doesn't like decorations!), even "people" decorations. Check out my daughter's face-paint and tattoos!
I hope this gives you a few ideas on how you can scrap your 4th of July. Now go on out there and enjoy it!
