MB's Treasurista 4th of July Blog Hop

Welcome to the MB's Treasurista 4th of July blog hop! I'm so glad you are able to join us today! Now i know its Father's Day, so don't forget to show all the Father's in your life some love!!! I'd like to say Happy Father's Day to my hubby who is also a SSgt in the USA Air force!!! As an Air Force Veteran myself, Independence Day means alot to me. Being a proud American, i love to celebrate this holiday and a few of my favorite things about celebrating is the fireworks and decorating. We have just a few short weeks before 4th of July, so lets get those thinking caps on and stir up some Independence Day creativity. To get that mojo flowing, my designers and myself got together and created some USA inspired projects. Please check out all the blogs and keep hopping, as there is a grand prize giveaway and hidden blog candy throughout the designers blogs. I hope the MBT Designers inspire you as much as they do me! ;)

Here is what i came up with. Now believe it or not i didn't have alot of 4th of July themed items, and the stores were bare to the theme as well. So i got creative with MB's Treasurista goodies, the DCWV Nantucket paper pad, K&Co Americana paper pad and a new to me Digi image ( 4th of July Candace ) from Chi Chi memories Designs. I also used one of my sketches for the Weekly CCL card challenges. I made the card 2 ways as well. Enjoy!!!:
