**God Bless The USA**

Happy Independence Day!
Happy July 4th!
God Bless America!

Since I was a wee one, I can remember my family celebrating this day...
flying flags...
wearing red, white & blue,
celebrating our Independence...
all because of:

freedom.
Freedom that all our military has fought for every day since way back when.
So I salute all of you.
I fly my flag for you.
I continue to wear my red, white & blue for you.
I celebrate you.
I pray for you. For your families
For our fallen heroes. For their families.
But most of all....
I thank you.
Happy Birthday America!
God Bless the U.S.A!

local scrap store, Scrappers Boutique.
I got to play with the new Jilibean Soup paper...(New England Chowder)
and I LOVE the kraft..love love love it!
Here's what I did:

I loved making the corrugated letters look like metal...(using Shimmerz & paint)

I'm off to enjoy the rest of the day...
the kids are off today with friends of theirs
so it's just hubby & I with 16 little furry legs....
hello pool & backyard cookout... here I come!
(that is if the rain decides to stop)

Enjoy yours!
Make it sparkley....

me.
