Circle Weekly Challenge

We enjoyed watching fireworks from a friend's deck and their neihbor was shooting of some of his own fireworks. We decided to try to get a picture of couples kissing with the fireworks going off in the background because, hey, even after 20 plus years we still feel sparks! Well we never could perfectly time the kiss and the blast with the shutter but I did manage to capture a firework in the sky so I used that picture on the layout with DH and I smooching. And of course I had to include the gang that was gathered for a fun USA birthday celebration!
The paper used was coordination, with scrap white for the shadow cuts and the 12 x 12 white sheet if from a page protector insert. I used the cart Stand and Salute for all the cuts. The bottom swags was using the border feature and the fire works were cut at 1.5, 2.0 and 3 inches with the corresponding shadow layer. The firecracker layered on the photos was cut at 1.20 for height and 3.29 width. I added a bit of sparkle to the fireworks with a glitter marker from American Crafts and the "star" charms on the bottom border are charms from Creative Charms.
