Fireworks Family Fun Layout

Today is Family Fun Challenge
over at Cooking With Cricut

and I am entering this layout in the Cricut Circle Weekly Challenge

Used Word Collage to cut Title (used hide contour to hide the rest).
Best part about this layout = I used only scraps. (plus two each white and blue cardstock)

Cut Stand and Salute Firecrackers at 2" and used as template to poke stitching holes --
hand stitched with twine
Cricut Circle Challenge is ABC 123 --
ABC = A burst of color  --  My layout is bursting with the color RED
123 =  Use ONE of this, TWO of that, and THREE or these.
1 = One tiny staple - One piece of stripe PP - One journal tag, etc
2 = Two red rhinestones - Two MME rhinestone brads - Two hand stitched Firecrackers - Two Cricut cartridges, Two different colors of twine, etc.
3 = Three red star brads - Three banners (R bottom) --

Items Used you can find at Happy N Scrappin'
