Celebrate FREEDOM hop Day 2 - Gather together!

Welcome to the
Celebrate Freedom 
blog hop!





If you've arrived here from Michele's blog, you're right on track.  If you need to start at the beginning for all the details then hop over to Lisa of Honeybearz Designs, she's our host!!  

Celebrating Freedom; gathering together with family & friends!


Here are some fun projects the kids & I put together for celebrating the 4th of July...

Cupcakes baked in fun papers, topped with red & blue candy stars (which my daughter had a ball making!!)  A dollar banner from Target; we cut 'USA' letters with our Cricut then crimped them!  The pinwheels are from The Cutting Cafe templates.  My Cricut framed art from yesterday's post.  The silver jar is a jelly jar altered...I'll do a tutorial on that technique another day!

All in all, just little projects, but they provided some awesome family fun time!!



I also wanted to mention...
There's a new challenge @ Digital Tuesday today, the theme is kids! Interpret however you wish, just be sure to include a digital element on your project!
