Happy Tuesday to you all! Hope you have a fabulous week planned. I have a FANTABULOUS-WONDERFULLY crazy week ahead of me LOL! Tomorrow we are heading to DC to see a Nationals baseball game with hubby…his firm has a box (so that means some yummy food and private bathrooms, I luvee that) and hope the weather is good. Its my first game that I’ve been able to go to this season so I’m looking forward to it…we are huge baseball, football and hockey fans and we can get pretty rowdy hee hee..so hope the co-workers in the box don't mind us! Then tomorrow is 4th of July here in the US so we are headed BACK into DC to see the stars on the mall (including Javier Colon…my buddy..from The Voice) and then the National Fireworks. Bonus of having a husband that works for a firm that owns a ton of buildings in DC? Well we get prime viewing from the top of one of the buildings with an awesome view of the mall…we bring a cooler and chairs and don't have to worry about parking and all that crazy jazz that happens down there on the mall…can’t beat it! Usually we are in SC for 4th of July so this is first time we’ve been able to see them in DC in awhile and I’m looking forward to it. Let's hope nothing I or my family does makes the NEWS ok? mmmmhmmmm LOL...so if you are watching the celebrations on the Mall and you see me...well just keep it to yourself ok...heehee!
Thennnnn to cap off the week I am headed down near my parent’s home in MD with Alexa (my mom & neice too) on Friday to see…..wait for it….come on shake for it…..yes you know….LUKE BRYAN!!

I used some scrap papers that are years old, BUT the blue-on-kraft background paper was done with the “Freedom Background” Magnolia stamp..I just stamped it in navy on my kraft cs and distressed with my Zutter and some ink. SUZ TIP: The banner was created by HAND…yes you do NOT need the banner dies to make this…I just cut out a triangle shape from cs to fit the letter stamps I had on hand (by PTI) and used the first shape as a template to make the rest. I then inked the edges and punched a small hole in the top of each…then used my bakers twine to link them and tie them off with bows. My Bakers Twine is red and white…so I inked it so it was more vintage looking with my SU ink..I did the same with my buttons as they were not dark enough. The star shapes are from SU punches, the swirly die is by Memory Box…the die reminded me of twirly-whirly fireworks fun!!
Diamond Glaze to her stone tablet and handle of torch and a few Stickles for sparkle!!
That’s it for me…wishing those in the States a safe and fun holiday week and weekend! See you back here on Friday!!
