Happy Independence Day! I made this layout for the #23 Inspired Blueprints sketch last month. Last year white space was something I really had a hard time with but now it's something I really love having on my pages. I'm sure it'll change again soon, lol. I feel like just when I think I start getting a set scrapping style I change again. Anyway, I just got this double sided paper the day before I made the layout. I was so excited when I found this photo to use on the sketch that I knew I had to use some of the new paper I found. This is one of those photos that isn't perfect, but I couldn't bear to not keep it either. It's a little blurry, there are deep shadows, but for some reason I still really like it. In fact I think it was taken close to around this same time last year. I remember it being early July. Anyway, enjoy and have a fabulous 4th!
