July 4th Parade Layout

Hello everyone and Happy 4th of July!!  This is Amy here to share a fun layout with you to celebrate this holiday.  I created this layout of my kiddos at the annual July 4th parade in our area.  This was from a few years ago….I hope to remember to capture photos of my kids at the parade this year.

That’s a lot of birds with one stone…so win win! Mini confession: we originally posted this several years ago… But a good old red, white and blue twine art  map of the USA is awesome […]

Scrapbook Page – Flag Ceremony

Jeanne here today with a patriotic scrapbook page featuring the new Twinery Firecracker Twine.  It’s the perfect accent for your 4th of July or other USA themed projects.  Boy Scouts have been a big part of my family for several years – my husband has been the Scout Master of our local troop and I’ve been Treasurer.  I’ve done more than a few merit badges with the boys too.  They always impress me with with their enthusiasm and curiosity. If you’ve never attended a Boy Scout Flag Ceremony it’s something that you need to witness. […]
