I love 4th of July and even though it’s still a few months away this Doodlebug Stars & Stripes Collection really got me in the mood of parades, picnics, & of course fireworks!!!I love that Doodlebug has their Essentials Kits which give you ribbon, rhinestones, and other goodies inside. Made putting together my layout a breeze b/c I didn’t need anything outside of my KLD Templates and this kit. Because I primarily am a 2-page maker I also picked up another Doodlebug Stars & Stripes Paper Pack so that I had two of each patterned paper to work with.
I LOVE working with my D.T. Sets to visualize & make all of the layouts I create. I hope the below sketch and my actual layout give you inspiration to come up with your own creation for this weeks DT Doodles #15.

I love using my Celebrate Accessory Set. Above is a closeup of #4 from the Celebrate Set which was the pinwheel. It is fun to use flat but I love to fold in the outside corners to the center in order to create this 3D pinwheel which allows you to see both sides of this fun 2-sided paper. I used one of the jewels from my Stars & Stripes Collection- Essentials Kit to add to the center of my pinwheel.
I loved using my pinwheels down the side in between the 3 photos I had of my son.
I used the Cone template (#6) from my Celebrate Accessory Set for these flags off the side of my photo. I had planned on using them as little journaling spots but ended up loving the patterns I chose and didn’t want to cover them up so I left it the way it was.
