4th of July Fun!

I really enjoy the 4th of July. I guess because it's not as commercialized as Christmas, Easter, etc. I enjoy the cookouts and fireworks, love sparklers and smoke bombs. So I made a special mini book using goodies from my Summer A Kiss On The Chic kit, a Kaiser chipboard album, Tim Holtz Crackle paint, Melissa Frances coupon book, and chipboard letters. These are pictures from last year. Here's a few pages:

I decided that my doggies needed a special 4th treat also. So I made them star shaped peanut butter cookies with oat topping. They loved them.

Here's a picture of Jake gobbling his up. Gracie ate her's so fast I couldn't get a picture:)

And last but not least. My dear hubby turned 30 on Sunday. I know this is a big birthday so he got a big present:

I don't do well going in debt! But he had a very happy birthday so that's all that matters. If you look close in this picture, you'll see our doggie Jake setting in the passenger seat. As soon as we got home, hubby dropped me off and picked his best little buddy up for a ride!

Does Jake think the truck is his present? Cute photo :)

Your mini book is fabulous; what a wonderful little memory book.

Happy Fourth Amber!

I love the fourth too! I think because it's such a nice casual holiday. No worries about fancy clothes, just friends and family!

Fabulous Album!

I love your album and all the patriotic colors! You are so sweet to make cookies for your dogs! Is it a special recipe for doggie cookies or regular cookies? That is a great idea, our dogs would love homemade cookies! Looks like your husband had a wonderful birthday!
