Here's a group picture of my projects for this hop. I will go over each one for you.

I just love the 4th of July!! The colors, the excitement, the cookouts, family gatherings, parades and all the fireworks. It's so exciting!!

First, this is one of my favorite things to do.....decorate charger plates!!

It's challenging as well as fulfilling.  I just love to sit back and admire them once I'm finished. It's amazing how a simple plastic plate and some vinyl can transform into a work of art!
I've recently gotten into making these simple wreaths for the holidays.  You can find my tutorial here
My cards!!!
Washi Tape and Paper Straws!!
Vinyl- Positive and Negatives ( I never throw away anything!!)
Paper Straw Flag
This one, I just wanted to use my new background stamp!! Tee hee!! Also used my scraps!!
Here are two cards from my previous posts. I thought I would share them again.
Washi Tape and Paper Straws 
I changed an Image from the Silhouette Store to a Print and Cut.
I used my Cameo and Cricut Imagine to make this one
Thank you so much for stopping by!!
