happy 4th of July!

(stickers from SRM Stickers, paper from Pink Paislee)

The 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays- not just because of fireworks and parades and barbecues but because many of the people I know and thousands I don't know and many others who have since passed on who have sacrificed so much of their time, their livelihood their ALL to serve our country and to protect our freedoms. Some of you may have family members who are serving in the military right now- thank you for the sacrifices that you make as well so that we can have a safer world to live in.

This is a layout that I created for SRM Stickers using two of the 4th of July sticker sheets along with papers from Jenni Bowlin and Lily Bee. The flower punch is from EK Success and it's one of my favorites!

These are pictures of Hailey from the 4th of July parade last year; I believe it's important to instill a sense of patriotism in our children even when they are young. Hailey had her hand on her heart as the guardsmen passed by with the American flag. 

One of the most patriotic people I know is my mother-in-law. She has a great love for her country and for those who serve. Here's a layout I made of her with pictures from last year as well, made using the July mini kit featuring Webster's Pages from My Scrapbook Nook last year. I know this is an old page as well, and a lot of you have seen it before I but thought I'd share it today anyway. 

If you have seen the July Scrapbook Trends you've seen another of my 4th of July pages- it's the opener for the 4th of July section of the July issue. That was such an exciting thing for me. 

I hope that you all have a wonderful day with your family and friends. May God bless this nation and those who serve so diligently to protect the freedoms we enjoy.

Happy 4th of July!
