We’re so glad you decided to hop with us! You’re going to meet some amazing ladies. We hope you have a great time visiting, and are inspired by, all the wonderful Patriotic creations.



This is a traditional two page layout that I created using a kit that I created for a challenge on another site.  Please see previous blog post for more information on that challenge.  I am reposting this project because the winner of my prize on my blog will receive the kit I created!  I created the kit with out blog hop theme:  Red, White, and Blue!  I have even cut duplicates of the Cricut embellishments for you!  I used two Creative Memories Cricut cartridges for those items.  I just felt this paper from the Paper Loft screamed picnic!  Then I looked on the back and it is called Picnic!  I hope you and yours have a great 4th of July Picnic!
 

 
 
This is the kit that I will be giving away.  It will contain everything pictured below:
 

 
includes:
8 pieces of paper
5 pieces of cardstock
2 alphas
1 sheet of  bling
2 sheets 12x12 sheets of diecuts
2 title, corner, mat sets

  16. Hi Alicia ... Yours is certainly a lovely layout. I have very fond memories of Independence Day picnics, fireworks and of course, celebrating our nation's history. I grew up in the shadow of Independence Hall in Philadelphia, the "Birthplace of Liberty," so I have a real appreciation for the holiday and what it means to our country and its citizens.

    I enjoyed getting to meet you and Hop with you this weekend. Let's do it again sometime soon!

    Fondly,
