4th of July Blog Hop

Welcome to our 4th of July Blog Hop! What comes to mind when you think of the 4th of July? Being with family, barbecues, picnics, and fireworks? That's what comes to my mind. But, few know the actual reason we are celebrating this holiday. We know it has something to do with America, the flag, independence. On July 4, 1776 United States of America declared it's independence from Britain. So today is America's Birthday, Happy Birthday America!!!

Today we have a lot of wonderful, talented women wanting to celebrate this holiday with you. If you've come here from Colleen's blog than you're in the right place. If you've just happened upon my page and would like to hop from the beginning, start at Pamela. Here's today's line-up in case you get lost along the way:

Nancy {you are here}
Lisa {You're next stop}

We have some really exciting 4th of July Candy! Kristy from Scraptastical Kreations is sponsoring this hop and has offered to give one lucky winner a $15 Gift Certificate to her store! All you have to do is visit every blog in this hop and leave a comment. It really doesn't get any easier than that!

And now for my project...Each month I change the theme of my magnetic board that I hang in my kitchen. This month I chose to do a patriotic theme and thought it couldn't be more perfect for this hop! 
Magnetic Board ~Creative Memories
Piecing Files ~ Scraptastical Kreations
Papers ~ Paper Pizazz & DCWV
Embellies: K&Company
4th of July Ribbon ~ Hobby Lobby
Various chalks, inks, pencils, white Gelly Roll pen

I was able to get this photo from the fireworks last night and add it onto the board! :)

Thanks for stopping by! Now I must send you on to the very talented Lisa to see what fabulous project she has for you. Remember to win the blog candy you must visit every ladies' blog and leave a comment. I hope my project has inspired you in some way, have a safe and wonderful 4th of July!
