Time for the BBTB2 Patriotic Challenge

Now that Summer is upon us and Fourth of July is just around the corner our DT sister at Bitten by the Bug 2 Susan has challenged us to make a Patriotic Project.  I decided to work ahead on layouts and create a Patriotic layout using A Child's Year and Art Philosophy.  

Here is the double page I created.  
The kids with the flag is from page 46 of ACY cut at 5 inches.  
The rocket cut is page 45 cut at 4 inches. 
I wanted to make a banner so I cut one from  Art Philosophy at 2 and 2.25 inches for a shadow.  
I then cut out Tim Holtz letters from one of his stacks to say Made in America. 
Paper from K and Company last year and also used some old fashion flag and firework pieces I cut out from Tim Holtz holiday stack.  Lots of inking with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo.  
I am also entering this in the Cricut Circle Weekly Challenge- Must have 3 stars and stripes on page
I hope you will join us for the Patriotic challenge.  Remember you have two weeks to link up your project to BBTB2.  You must use a Cricut cut and don't forget to let us know what you used.  Also a reminder that you have one more week to link up your birthday and pearls creations.
Hope you will join us and Happy Craftin!
