Thankful for our Freedom!

Happy 4th of July to all of my American crafty friends!!!

The gals at Imaginisce have been feeling a bit festive and we wanted to share some 4th of July inspired projects with everyone. 

For me, Independence Day is much more than a barbecue, fireworks or a holiday from work.  It's a true celebration of the free life that we are blessed to live here in America!  So many have bravely fought for us to have this privilege and we honor them with our gratitude on this day too.  Thank you!!!

The inspiration for my project today was triggered by the leftover "Ladies & Gentlemen" brad daddy that I had made during another creative endeavor.   It was too good to pass up so I pulled some papers from a few of my collections to get a nice variety of red white and blue colors and voila! 

I added a little extra bling with my i-Rock and Hot Rocks.

The star is a bit of embossed Core'dinations cut with a Spellbinder's star die.  The papers here are a trifecta of Imaginisce goodies.
