I had a blast creating this layout for the July 2013 Brush Challenge! I love brushes and experimenting with the different styles and shadows, so it took me a while to finally say I was satisfied with the results but, oh, how much fun it was!!!

KITS: I used papers and elements from the following kits:
Brightness -- by Viola Moni
County Fair Collab Mega Kit -- by the GS Designers
BRUSHES: Patriotic Brushes by BeDifferentBy Design
FONT: Varieté Cabaret
PHOTOS: Stock photos, cake: stock photo extracted by me
