The theme for this month's hop is all about SUMMER! Can I just say, I am so relieved that it is finally starting to feel like summer here. It was a long winter, followed by a long, cold, wet spring. But now the weather is starting to warm up, my children are out of school, and my garden is planted I can feel the relaxation that comes with the lazy days of summer. Well, I have three young children and a yard full of weeds so it won't be that lazy - but you know what I mean!
One of my favorite things about summer is celebrating the Fourth of July. To me it means spending time with family, parades, fireworks, and feeling very grateful for this wonderful country I live in. I realized that it had been a while since I have played with my vinyl, and I found these totally adorable patriotic pinwheels at Joann, so I decided to make a patriotic centerpiece. And since Robyn recently released a most fabulous patriotic stamp set called Freedom Rocks, I also had the perfect stamp to go along! To see all of Robyn's fabulous stamps click here, and for more information about where to purchase My Pink Stamper stamps click here.
