Cardstock as a base....

Because somewhere in my scrapping frenzy
I took a hunk out of this paper
and there wasn't enough - not even for a 8x8.
So.....I found some matching cardstock and used that as a base.
 And that's nothing new, I just haven't done it in awhile.
I've been looking back on pages and there's
lots of things I don't do anymore.
And there's no reason why.
Pointing out that eagle is QK die - isn't he snappy.
Itty bitty stars - yum - I seriously need to pick
up more glitter paper.
 It's perfect patriotic paper - Studio Calico and found
some more colored cardstock to make my "fireworks" -that
I had to resort using the top of a pineapple die cut
for the "boom.
I had a "grass" punch that made and an excellent firework - but I can't find it.
And I'm totally bummed because that was one of the first
punches I ever purchased and I know I wouldn't have
given it away. I tore everything up looking for it
to no avail.
Love the photo of the kidlets with their sparklers.
It reminded me of the three musketeers!
Therefore assorted alphas for the title because naturally I didn't have
all the letters needed to complete some words.
I know I'm surprised.
Actually this was fun to make - the photo is cool
and having to work around my missing punch
added some lively moments.
It's really making me crazy I can't find it.
