4th of July party time

I was perusing some old links I'd saved a long time ago , and came across this fun "oldie but goodie" from CTMH way back in 2009.

Click here for the link

At the link you'll find some GREAT party ideas for celebrating the 4th.  While some of the supplies are no longer available, a good crafter will always substitute what's in their stash -

Here's a great 2 page layout that can easily be created with cardstock and any current themed stamps.  I created this original layout in 2008. 

I hope you have a WONDERFUL 4th of July holiday.
