Celebrating the Fourth!

Hello, Happy Tuesday!!! I am so happy school's finally out for the summer!!! I work in a local school system so that means some much needed time off. I have so much to catch up on around here. I did get to go to my friend Pia's house on Saturday for a day of creating and laughing with the girls. It was so much fun to spend the day with everyone and I got a lot of crafting done too!

This week at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations the challenge is a great one for anyone here in the US, the theme is the Fourth of July!!! I don't know what I love the best, the big parade in town, the cookouts or the fireworks. We would love to see what the Fourth of July means to you, so come play along with us this week.
