Hi there!
I am sharing a layout I created playing along with a few challenges.
I used a photo of Austin last 4th of July when we met some of my family at Lake Wazee to have a picnic and swim. I used Simple Stories Sea To Shining Sea along with some Creative Embellishments chipboard and wood veneer for this layout:

I added a few mists to my background using the packaging technique. I had a hard time finding the correct navy to go with it and wish I would have watered it down a bit so it wasn't so bold.
I did some color blocking here with a few patterned papers. I added a few stickers, tangled thread and the chipboard word piece:

I backed the main chipboard stars with a few patterned papers and then added my photo right on top. I added a few stickers, a fussy cut cupcake and some CE wood veneer stars:

I added another sticker and tangled thread here. I love the texture I get from the thread and it adds that pop of navy. I used alphas from the Simple Stories collection for my title:

I fussy cut the multi colored stars from one of the papers and added  some CE wood veneer stars and star stickers. I also added some messy machine stitching:

I played along with Scrap The Boys You Are A Star challenge:

and the July challenge at Creative Embellishments:

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
