Bust out the Red, White and Blue with a Paper Issue's mini Blog Hop!

The new theme is up at Paper Issues and it is all about Picnics and Patriots. Make sure you stop by there is also a mini blog hop featuring layouts with this theme...oh yeah and a prize! When I think of this subject I think of the 4th. of July and bbq's and fireworks. To me these two just go hand in hand. After a day of bbq and bean bags we all head out to see the firework show. I think the kids have more fun here playing around while waiting for the show to start than they do all day. I happen to snap this photo of all them having a little fun and being totally silly. I used We R Memory Keepers Red White and Blue line. I am always pulled in by red white and blue papers and this line did not disappoint! With fun stripes, polka dots and fireworks it just screams patriotic.

The embellishments for this line are amazing...check out this fun pinwheel and flag. Oh and lets not forget the star stick cool are these!!

    EXCELLENT photo! That's exactly how they wait for fireworks -- goofing around, running around, sometimes whining - never patiently! Just an excellent capture with a beautiful page to show it off!
