so with that in mind we have ideas for you from an adorable silverware caddy and banner to invitations to announce the fun event!!
 Kim made this super adorable silverware caddy from an old pop bottle carrier that she had laying around. She covered it
and added stickers and then filled it with lots of utensils for
all her guests to use for the party.

Debbie used purchase cardboard star and covered it
with pieces of patriotic papers in alternate colors. For the
center and title she used a Spellbinders die and put on one of 
our stickers and layered the hat and ribbon on top of that.
To hang it up she added cute matching ribbon.

for you today to use our brandNew I love America Collection
This paper is filled with lots of bright colors and embossed  glitter that really, really makes it fun to work with... it's great for all those picnic photos, 4th of July, family photos, military and  just about anything that has red, white and blue in the photo.

you would like to use it for a chance to win a pack of these new papers.....
Who couldn't resist the chance to get a hold of some of this right? 
Our first page is from Shannon and she used one of the new diecuts and distressed it and the red glitter paper that she used for the backround.  She created her title by hand drawing out the letters and then matted it and cut it out. She also distressed the photos and added tiny white borders inside each one that really make the photos stand out.
