July Counterfeit Challenge

I am REALLY late to the party this month, but I couldn't resist putting a kit together based on one of this month's add-on kits over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge.  I am a sucker for Americana and just LOVE the 4th of July.  However, the real inspiration for my kit was Julie Ann's at Inspiration for Generation C 2.0.  I had been toying around with the idea of not doing the main kit and focusing on the Liberty Shores add -on from PolkaDot Whimsey.  Once I say Julie Ann's take on Liberty Shores, I was hooked. 

Here's my version -
