Happy Birthday America

The sun is finally shining here (horrible Spring), it is the first day of summer, and I am gearing up for the Fourth of July weekend.   One of my favorite parts of the 4th when I was young was Sparklers.  This digi by Guylou's Inimitability is sooo cute.  Unfortunately, the Stickles look like globs in the photo.  I used Lucy's sketch  http://www.lilypad.inlinkz.com/2011/06/17/memory-box-presents-lucys-lovely-lines/.  The sentiment was done on my computer, combining a fonts, the USA being by Creative Memories.
