Happy Fourth of July!

Here in the States we are CeLeBraTiNg the Fourth of July, our Independence Day.

We are kicking off this week with a fabulous layout from April Derrick using the Fabulous Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions. Don’t you love how April used the large scalloped sheet? Fabulous!  And that strip of photos???? Love it!

And Debbie Standard created this gorgeous card using stamps and Core’dinations. The Woodgrain Embossing folder from Tim Holtz is perfect for the background for the cute little birdhouse.

Beautiful!

Have a wonderful Holiday and be safe!
