Independence Day Projects

This weekend, between family get-togethers and spending some quality time with the boy, I managed to fit in some personal crafty time. The first project I made was a scrapbook page about the St. Patty’s Day parade in Boston, which felt very appropriate to me to scrap about on the 4th of July. After all, in what other country could people normally scattered across thousands of miles gather to celebrate a collective heritage? St. Patty’s in Boston makes me proud to be an American . . . and Irish.

The next project has absolutely nothing to do with the holiday. I just really wanted to create a girly card using the glittery paper from American Crafts’ Botanique collection.

Oh, that puppy and boy stamp makes me smile! And it’s from a stamp set called “Freedom.” Could we get any more appropriate for this weekend? I think not. {grins}

Happy Independence Day, everyone!
