Over at Scrap Our Stash, the July challenge is "stars and stripes" and I knew that these pictures of the grill master would be perfect. These fabulous 2-sided, red/white/blue patterned papers are from My Mind's Eye and I am so proud of myself for not hiding them away to save for "something special". I have a tendency to do that with papers I love---I know it makes no sense, it's just silly ol' me.
And I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE making pinwheels!
I could put them on everything I make right now I think they are so cool! Maybe, because it reminds me of the 4th of July parades when I was little...my dad would attach metallic red, silver, and blue pinwheels to my handlebars and they would spin while I would ride. I couldn't find a picture that had those pinwheels on it, but I did dig up an old 4th of July picture of me and one of my brothers. In this picture (I think it is 1976), I had decided to decorate my doll buggy rather than a bike. I am groovy!
Happy 4th of July!
God Bless America!
