Forgot to get pictures while we had everything cooking or after everyone was seated, but at least I got a couple of pictures of the food on the table and our July 4th themed plates and napkins on the table for everyone.   We had 9 of us for our cookout dinner.   5 adults and 4 grandkids.   So much fun and an assortment of food for everyones favorites.  Brisket for most was requested,  hubby and son wanted pastrami and then at last minute had to microwave some chicken nuggets for a couple of picky kids but it all worked out well.   With just enough leftovers for two sandwiches the next day.

I am entering this in two different challenges.

"SCRAP OUR STASH"  -- Saturday Cartoon Sketch Challenge   I used the sketch and was inspired by the patriotic them of the cartoon Micky.   You had to add arrows and I added 4 fussy cut arrows to my layout.


The 2nd challenge I'm entering is at   "LASTING MEMORIES" -- Challenge #453 is Patriotism - Red & White.

LM #453 - Patriotism - Red & White

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you are having a good weekend. We are officially on vacation and that feels great!

I can't believe that tomorrow is July 1st and that means it's time for a new theme and new set of challenges. Our theme and challenges for July are courtesy of DT Sandy.

Our theme for is "Patriotism" and all of our challenges will be patriotic in some way.

LM #453 - In Canada, July 1st is our nation's birthday. To celebrate that create a Red & White layout.

Your layout can be any theme - just use the colors red and white predominantly on your layout
