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, and independence. On July 4, 1776, United States of America declared its independence from Britain. So today is America’s Birthday! Happy Birthday, America!
 For my project I made a little decorative piece This is a favorite candle holder that I have sitting (not at the moment) on my mantel the candles are white and very plain so for the holidays I like to spice them up with something cute and fun. I wrapped them with Graphic 45 "boardwalk paper cut at 21/2 inches wide and punched the edge with an EK Success scalloped punch I then cut stars from the Stand and Salute cartridge in red , white, and blue at 3 different sizes and layered them. The fun images are from
  "Scrapping With Lisa Designs" I used her "4th of July Parade " set Printed the Adobe file fussy cut the images inked the edges a bit and popped dotted them to the stars. Boring candles to fun festive decoration!

Hope you enjoyed my project and if you like the images head on over to Lisa's store and see what else she has so many very cute images and many also come in digi stamp form as well.
