Sassy Lil' Sketch

Here is the February 21 sketch from Sassy 'Lil Sketches.  Since Sketches in Thyme has an open contest, I am using it for that, too.  I used it to create a page about the 4th of July....can you tell from the color combo?!  I think this is one of the first pages I've scrapped of this holiday - maybe ever!
So here is what I did with the page - it was mostly pics of my daughter playing at the July 4th celebration we have every year at our church. 
I used some red glimmer paper to create some shiny stars.  I also found some really neat blue star trim to add a layer to my page.  I staggered my scalloped edges of Night of Navy paper using a technique I saw recently in Tips & Techniques magazine.  The title letters come from a Making Memories letter set.  The other embellishments are from Jolee's.  They just screamed out to me to make a patriotic type of banner going across the page!  Here's the closeup:
Paper:  Whisper White, Night of Navy, Playdate DSP, Tempting Turquoise DSP
Accessories:  Scallop border punch, Stars #2 die cut, red glimmer paper (All SU), Red glitter letters, star trim (Making Memories), Star and banner embellishments (Jolee's Boutique)
