KABOOM! Fireworks Celebration! FCCB#118 Challenge and My 100th Post!

Happy Birthday Week America!  Today is the kick-off of a very big and exciting week around camp Pie!  First off, today is the first time participating in the FCCB (Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog) as a Design Team member and coincidently my 100th post! Secondly, this is the week we celebrate America’s birthday! What better way to start celebrating it, by making a project for this week’s challenge at FCCB!

This week’s challenge over at FCCB is making a project with a firework, sparkler, rocket, or anything that goes KABOOM! Follow me on over  and get to creating! I would love to see what you got cookn’ with your Cricut!

What I came up with was making personalized candy tossing pails for the kiddos that are doing the 4th of July Push and Pull’em Parade with us.  It is a parade where there are literally more people in the parade than watching it.  It is a time for 100’s of local families and friends to get together and deck out their scooters, strollers, bikes, wagons and whatever else they can get their hands on and just celebrate this great nation’s birthday!  It does dump into a HUGE street fair, which is TROUBLE for me…and the hubs wallet!

Picture from the position of “middle” of the 4th of July Push and Pull’em Parade… yeah it is the hot spot to be every July 4th!

I really like working with vinyl and I had a new stamp set to test out, so I was in heaven this past week in my craft studio.  Needless to say I was having a ton of fun whipping out 5 of these.

Hope you all have a wonderful and safe 4th!  Thanks for coming and sharing a piece of, “Happy Birthday America” pie with me.
