Have a blast!

Let's celebrate!!! When we left PA and headed out west, one of the first things the kids noticed were fireworks stores everywhere!!!! Fireworks are illegal to buy in PA, the big ones that is! So on our way home we stopped and made an impressive purchase. Even though we had one extra person and a van load of stuff, we managed to find room in the van for fireworks! So for todays challenge at SCS (we were to use wire) I thought of a blasting firecracker. I didn't have the right size image so I found this one at FamilyFun.com. The wire is actually from twisty ties (suggested on the challenge). I have pretty wire but couldn't find it (there is that underlying issue again)! The sentiment is red embossed and the bg stars are white craft ink and clear embossed. I punched out the little stars with the kids punch and glue two together over the wire then pushed them in the silver ink. The big blue star is hand-drawn and cut out. The firecracker is popped. Actually quite fun! Another hazy day here in PA....so summers right around the corner! Can't wait for watermelon and corn on the cob picnics! Enjoy your day!
