BBTB2 & FCCB - 4th of July

Happy Monday!!!

Can you believe the 4th of July is Friday!?!?

This is one of my favorite holidays!
I LOVE Fireworks!!!
Well, fire, I LOVE fire :)

Anyway, it's tradition for my family to have a huge party all day long
of food and swimming and more food and
then light off more fireworks than we can count
to end the festivities!

So in honor of the 4th, BBTB2 has chosen this fun holiday for the theme
- Independence Day -
Bitten by the Bug 2

Here is my project:
I used the fun sparkler from Summer Celebrations.
This cart is great for all the different occasions
that happen throughout the summer!
LOVE it!

My paper is from The Paper Studio,
the twine from Trendy Twine,
and the stamp from CardzTV "Happy Days"

I hope that you will join us for this week's challenge!
