Decorate To Celebrate #101

Happy Wednesday!!!

Hope you are enjoying your week!
It's the last week of school here and, to be honest,
I am a bit scared of my first "summer" with my 6 year old.

Again, I will survive :)

Anyway, over at Decorate To Celebrate we have another
Anything Goes Challenge starting.

Here's my project:
I decided to make a 4th of July Decor Sign.
I bought a $1 wood plaque from Wal-Mart and painted
it with some Acrylic Paint.
I used Mod Podge to adhere my flag paper,
which comes from Hobby Lobby.

The "Liberty" phrase comes from Summer Celebration.
I cut it out of some thicker blue cardstock.
I used my Xyron Sticker Machine to make the
cardstock a sticker and centered it on the plaque.

I had some arrow embellishments from CTMH
and used those for an added touch.

I hope you will join us for our challenge over at
Decorate To Celebrate!

Thanks for checkin' in!!!

  4. So pretty -- I love this. My son is in the US Marine Corps so I'm always looking for patriotic ideas and this is a beautiful project.
