Happy 4th and Paper Issues, Too!

I'm so excited to tell you that I'm going to be a part of the Paper Issues Design Team!  Paper Issues is a really fun challenge blog and I'm thrilled to be included.  Right now the challenge is red, white and link up your projects and check out the rest of the DT's blogs!  I found this cigar box a year ago when we were visiting my daughter, Lauren, in Wichita. 
 I opened it up and thought the image of these Little Continentals was darling - I had to have it! 
Then, of course,  I had to turn it into cute July 4th decor.  So this is what I came up with:
I also made some July 4th blocks.
  These are really cool, because they have six different images.   I'll just show you a couple. 
 Hope you're having a wonderful July 4th holiday.  Lauren's here, so I gotta go!  

ETA:   Thank you, Tracyfor featuring me!  You are so sweet and did a fantastic job.  I'm so honored!  Check out her blog, Cotton Pickin Cute Thanks again, Tracy!
