Happy Independence Day!

Hello Friends - Happy 4th of July!

Today I'm bringing you a festive layout to celebrate the holiday. I used another wonderful sketch from Stuck?! sketches.

It's hard to take a perfectly square photo, btw!

Here's the original sketch:

This sketch was just meant to be for these photos of my boys I had waiting to be scrapped.

My boys are 3 years and 1 day apart, so all the hand-me-downs are seasonally appropriate. I love to compare the sweet thangs in some special outfits (usually holiday related). This is the first age comparison page I've done of the two of them!? How is that possible?!

I stamp embossed the stars, and filled in the hollow stars with watercolors. Then I went a little splatter crazy.

They're definitely brothers, that's for sure. But they also have their own look too. Lachy quite a bit chunkier too!

I love this Pebbles Americana collection. It just took a couple of tiny scraps for behind the photos.

The ephemera pack is super fun too.

I added a little journaling at the bottom that is not in the sketch. Seems like Lachlan got a little jipped on that beach view too! Haha.

Thanks for looking & I hope you have a great holiday!
