My Project is a 12x12 layout of the fireworks at the capitol. I mounted some red and white star patterned paper cut at 11.75x11.75 on a 12X12 black piece of cardstock.

 I cut my pictures to be 2x2 and mounted them and then clustered them on a piece of blue and white patterned paper and then mounted that on some white card stock.

 I used a combination of white foam letter stickers and letters cut from the Plantain Schoolbook Cricut Cartridge and glittered.

I stamped a background using 4th of July stamps and Azure StazOn ink.

This is my finished lay out. I added the large journaling spot on the left, along with some home made accents with some stamps, StazOn Ink, and Ultra Thick Embossing powder, and some glitter.
