Happy Independence Day!!!

To celebrate Independence Day, I put together a red, white & blue RAK for a random poster on this thread. (includes: 10 sheets of red & Blue Simply Luxe, 2 sheets of Color Me...Strarstruck, 2 12 x 12 sheets of alpha stickers, 1 red & 1 blue sheet of die-cut journaling jotters, 1 set of red label stickers, 1 white dot border rub, 1 white alpha rub & 1 set of blue epoxy stickers) All you have to do is hop on and post your name, location & what you are doing for the weekend. I will name a winner Monday morning. Good luck & have a fun & safe 4th!

Hi Emily!
Happy 4th to you! I am getting up early to catch a parade, then off to a barbeque where there is guaranteed to be a water fight, and lots of good homemade food! I think I will then chill by the pool for the rest of the weekend! Fun!

I'm going to finish landscaping my yard...I've been doing it for the past 6 weeks in my spare time. Then I plan on cooking out and enjoying my beautiful yard work! Then I hope to do a little bit of scrapbooking since I haven't been able to do much with all the yard work.

Hi Emily, have a happy and safe 4th!
Because of the poor air quality and fire risk here in California (I am in Central Valley) we will forego the fireworks this year. Instead, I will work on my "In Memory Of" pages featuring my favorite aunt who passed away in Dec. 07.
Hope everyone enjoys the 3 day weekend. And by the way, thanks Emily for doing the RAK. These things are always exciting!!

Happy 4th! We're being lazy and sleeping in - then maybe some yard work...Sunday is family reunion day and I'm making a quick and easy jambalya [Desperation Dinners] and my 'signature' [ha] flag pies: blueberry and cherry with the crust laid out like stripes on the flag. I may also take a red - white - blue trifle that's pretty easy to make. Hope you have a good one - Judy in Huntsville

We're doing a cookout at my parents house they have the pool... always a good reason to have it there. Then at dark our little city shoots off amazing fireworks so we'll walk to the main road in our subdivision with chairs and have front row seats to the watch - all the fun with none of the traffic

The plans were to be creative all weekend in my art room until I have a painful cyst attack late Friday afternoon which laid me up until today when I woke up feeling much better, though still in a little bit of pain. I did get some creative time in and still plan for time today. I was able to see the fireworks through the trees and over the house across the street so that was a treat!
