Scrap-Tacular!

I love the time between June 14th (Flag Day) and July 4th, everywhere you go are displays of patriotism - - American flags, bunting, all things red, white and blue!

I actually begin my display the weekend of Memorial Day and will leave it until August. My front walkway is lined with red, white and blue Petunias, stars and stripes pinwheels, bunting and tiny American Flags.

So a special shout out to any military members, wives, or kids who may be reading my blog today!! Thank you!
Having said all this, I was absolutely THRILLED to receive the July Kit - "SCRAP-TACULAR" from the SCRAP-TASTIC site to work with this month!!

While there is so much more to this kit than just red, white and blue - I took full advantage of these elements to create the following projects:
