Celebrate the Occasion #20 - 4th of July

Hello Everyone!  It's Design Team #2 day at Celebrate the Occasion!  This week we are Celebrating the upcoming 4th of July!  The twist is you must use Red, White and Blue in your project!  I have another LO for you today!
Just a simple LO today!  This one is my Middle Es first 4th of July.

I used Stand and Salute for all the cuts on this LO.  The red polka-dot ribbon is from Stampin' Up!, the white is Hand Dyed Crinkle Ribbon from My Craft Spot, and the blue is from Michael's.

I outlined the Statue of Liberty and popped her up.  The fireworks are glittered up with Stickles.

I love her crazy smile in this pic!  I added some more ribbon, a button, bling and some My Craft Spot Bakers Twine for an accent.

Another great layout! The Crinkle ribbon is just the perfect touch. This little E is just as adorable as her older sister. From the pictures it seems like all 3 Es looked so much alike as babies. So cute!
