  6. Love your wall hanging!! I love the 4th of July. My family has a cottage on the lake and every year we head down there for the fireworks which are right over the lake. It is beautiful. We also light flares in front of our cottage as well as everyone else around the lake. It is truly an amazing sight to see!
    Thanks for sharing your projects and for the chance to win :)

  7. I remember seeing this before and loved it! We will be taking it easy here for the 4th. We just moved in our new house and are slowly getting things unpacked and out of storage. We are hoping to be done by then and just relaxing and enjoying time together.

  33. Gorgeous projects Kassidy!!! I hope we will spend our 4th with a nice family cookout or two, great safe fireworks at home for the kids, and a huge fireworks display somewhere a bit different than Lake Erie this year.
    Awesome Giveaway!

  34. We always have THE most amazing 4th of July! Our whole neighborhood (about 18 families) get together in the cul de sac on our street, the afternoon of the 4th, and we all bring food, and bbq and have an awesome time visiting and catching up with each other. Then when it gets dark we pool our fireworks and have an awesome show that would rival most. I swear, it's just like those scenes you see in old movies!!!!

    This is a nice giveaway.

  36. Great ideas! Thanks for sharing. We will spend the 4th with family and swim.

  39. That is a very neat frame!! I love it!! :) We'll be starting the 4th of July with a BBQ at our house w/ friends & family...then we'll all be migrating over to one of the local parks for more food & games, a tribute to the armed forces, & then a spectacular fireworks show!! So fun!! :)

  40. We will celebrate my niece's birthday and chill out.

  41. We will be hanging out with the family on the 4th, can't wait!

  42. How will I spend the 4th? We will be grilling out with both sets of Grandparents & then watching fireworks in our neighborhood.

  43. Wow! The projects are great! I don't have any July 4th scrapbooking items so would LOVE to win this! :0) Sad to say, but I have no plans for the 4th. Since I've gotten Fibromyalgia (about 3 years ago) I haven't been able to really enjoy many holidays. It's hard to make plans because I don't know how sick I'll be feeling. I'd love to be able to go up to the local Reservoir and watch fireworks from there. You can see about 7 different towns fireworks going off. It's really amazing! If I feel well, that would be my first choice. If I don't I will be crafting. :0)

    Be sure to stop by my blog to enter my 500 followers giveaway!

This year we'll be spending it at the beach with my fam and then part of it with my husbands fam.. and some of it unpacking since we're moving into our new home on June 30 we'll have a lot to do :D cant wait thanks for the chance to win!

  46. What a cute project!!! Unfortunately, I will be spending the 5th of July MOVING! Ugh... Not looking forward to setting up a new craft room, I will sure miss my old one!!!


  47. we spend the 4th every year (since we moved to AZ in 2001). We go swimming at my parents house, have a BBQ, make s'mores, pop some popcorn and go tail gate and watch some fireworks. I have always loved fireworks but it's so much better reliving them through your children's eyes.

    Happy 4th Kassidy and Happy Birthday Month.
