Happy 4th of July (almost!) and the giveaway winner.

There is no doubt that the 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays. There's no normal holiday pressure like presents, costumes, or pretend characters. I love that's it's spending time with family, eating great food, watching the sky erupt in bright colors, and celebrating part of our country's history.

I know this is an older layout but it's one of my favorites from my collection of 4th of July layouts. Mostly because of the amount of photos on it. Grids are an excellent way to get a lot of pictures on the layout and it's easy. I love that this layout shows so many little tidbits of the day.

Have a happy and safe 4th of July! :)

Wow- Volume 6 congratulations. I can't wait to get my hands on a copy. And I agree that the spiral binding is wonderful, it is so nice when reference books lay flat.

Email me at with your shipping information.

While I'm on the subject of giveaways, you might want to check some of my giveaways and see if you have won any. I've got a few that are unclaimed. I'll give 10 more days for someone to claim them.

Thank you so much for all the wonderful comments yesterday and celebrating our newest adventure with me.

Just wondering if there are any color layout examples in the sketch book, or is it all b&w just sketches?

LeAnne Smith said...

Hi Allison! Just sent my info again as I was the winner of the Nikki Sivils giveaway last month. Hopefully I didn't end up in your spam folder!

Thanks again, LeAnne

Ps. Another great layout today! Love it!! :)

Allison Davis said...

ScrapyTiff, all of the sketch books are 30 b&w sketches. We probably won't ever add color layout examples in the sketch books but we are considering an idea that would include color layout and sketches. :)

LeAnne, thank you so much for sending it! :)

Love your 4th of July page!! Especially the details like the USA on your sons outfit. But my fav pic is the one of you & Drew looking up at the fireworks.
