I will start this post by wishing everyone here in the USA a Happy Independence Day and a big thank you to those in the military that have given time and even lives to make and keep this possible.

Today I am sharing a layout I did with some photos from last year's celebration.  We had spent the day having a barbecue at friends house and then attending a big fireworks show in the evening.  It was wonderful to be able to celebrate with friends.  This year is a quiet one as we are new residents of Delaware and haven't met many new friends yet.  Michael couldn't make it because he threw out his back and needs to rest it to be able to work and I planned to barbecue for me and the kids but got back from a disastrous grocery shopping trip late so we had a roasted chicken and mashed potatoes instead and will have a big barbecue tomorrow night.  Hopefully we will get to see some fireworks tonite.

I did this layout using a sketch on Colorful Creations for their Plus Two challenge, and I also have entered this in the Red White and Blue challenges at Outlaw Women Scrapbook Emporium and a Homespun Affair.  

Thanks for stopping by...
