Hi! Welcome to the Summer Time Blog Hop. If you came from Jamie's blog you are on the right path. If you started at my blog please pop over to Suzanne's blog  for your chance to win this fabulous grand prize.

My boys are constantly bringing me bugs they have found so for my project I made a digital layout using files from Scrappy Dew. If you would rather do traditional paper pieced layouts they offer a variety of formats for cutting machines and hand cutting. I used Garden Gnomes and Bug Catchers   

Thank you for stopping by, the next stop in the hop is Teresa

For my project I made a keepsake layout with a spot for a picture and the handprints of our children.  I found the poem on the internet, it says 


I'm glad that you're my daddy
Though I am little, I understand
All the love you give to me
That it's you who takes my hand
To show me the wonders of life
To teach me the things I need to know
Your loving way will guide me
Through each year as I grow
I know right now I'm little
But when my growing is done
I dream I'll be like you, daddy
A caring and loving person! 

Next on the hop is Lisa !!!

Should you get lost along the way, here is the entire line up:

Summer Party Blog Hop

Welcome to the Summer Party Blog Hop. I am the last stop on the hop so you should have came from Sandy's blog. If you started at my blog be sure to hop over to Shannon's blog so you don't miss out on anyone's project. 

I chose to do the 4th of July as my theme. I made a luminary to place around a LED candle, 2 flower vases with paper flowers placed in the vase and maracas to entertain the kids. I designed the luminary myself but the flower vases and paper flowers are from paper piecing files found at Scraptastical Kreations.     

All the files used to make the vases and flowers came from Scraptastical Kreations. The flower vase file is a 2-D vase. I cut 4 vases and glued them together to make a 3-D vase.  
To make the blue flower I used fancy flowers, flower # 5 for the petals and the stamen came from garden splendor. The roses are made using Elegant Florals, flower #2

Thank you for stopping by!
