Happy 4th of July!!!

It's pretty quite around here today. Mike is at work until 6p, so we are cleaning house, doing laundry, and baking and cooking for tonight. We are going to the church's ice cream social and then to the river to watch the fireworks...1st time since we've lived here! Once that is over, we will head home to do our own fireworks.

I thought I'd share a red, white & blue project I created over this past weekend while at the scrapbook retreat. I basically copied the layout idea from the Close To My Heart 2008 Summer Idea Book and did just a little tweaking...different title...accents, etc.

I love this My Reflections Kit, Blue Ribbon...especially that Cranberry Butterfly B&T! It works for so many themes...4th of July, BBQs, Picnics, Bluebonnets, Family Reunions, Summer Fun, Memorial Day, Labor Day, and so much more!

I made my bluebonnets out of White Daisy Just Bloom Paper Flowers. I cut the petals off and then sponged them with Indian Corn Blue ink. The stems are made using CTMH's new RicRac Designer Ribbon.

I love my Alphabet Solo stamps! I never have to worry about running out of a sticker or chipboard letter.  Gotta love that! I inked the edges of the stamps with Chocolate distressing inks then stamped them onto Colonial White cardstock and cut them out.

Thanks for looking and I hope your 4th is spectacular!
