4th of July wall hanging

Happy Monday!  Our BBTB2 challenge this week is fireworks, as today is the 4th of July!  We are traveling to Denver today (on our way to vacay in Estes Park, CO) and will get to celebrate with family there tonight.  I'm looking forward to this upcoming week of hiking and horseback riding in Rocky Mountain National Park and have a whole stack of new books to read while sitting on the deck looking at the mountains!  And there is supposed to be a hot tub overlooking Lake Estes to soak in…it's gonna be a great week!  So switching focus to crafty things, below is my BBTB2 project, which we've been enjoying for a few weeks.

I made a wall hanging for my foyer, using Simply Charmed for the words and A Child's Year for the 4th of July images.  It turned out just how I imagined it (which is not always the case, lol) and is framed and hanging up on the wall.  I tried photographing it in the frame, but the reflections off the glass did not make for a decent pic so you are seeing it unframed.  Hope you will check out all the cool projects from the design team and link up a new project of your own!

  1. I can imagine how beautiful this looks in your foyer. It sure did turn out petfectly! Have a wonderful time at Rocky Mountain National Park, this is such a beautiful park. Sounds like you have some fun things planned.

  2. Super cute!!!! Love the silhouette cuts on Child's Year and you used them perfectly! Have a great trip - sounds awesome!
