Happy 4th of July! And Happy Anniversary 4th of July Smashbook Page!

Happy 4th of July! I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful Holiday weekend! We are have some cooler weather here in Arizona, we are not expected to hit over 106 this weekend! Yippee!

Not only is tomorrow Independence Day, it is my wedding anniversary! I got married on the 4th of July 18 Years ago! Yikes the years have just flown by!  I already made a page for my smashbook here, but it just didn't feel right not having a red, white and blue one since we were married on the 4th of July! So I decided to make a 2nd page!

I LOVE digging into my stash and pulling out hoarded items! I actually found silver stars that you could lick to make them stick! I am thinking they are at least 20+ years old!
