Sparkler Fun

Without little ones, I’m not sure I’d enjoy the fun of the 4th of July as much. Their excitement makes it all worthwhile.

For the past 17 years, we’ve been lucky enough to watch the fireworks from our boat on the water. They have never disappointed.

As we celebrated this Independence Holiday, my thoughts turn to those who are fighting for my right to relax and enjoy this holiday. I always get sad for those who are on foreign lands and away from their families. God Bless all those who serve and have served since the beginning of America. I pray that my children, grandchildren, and generations to come have the same comfort level that I experience. It is a fun holiday, but it is also one that always gives me a heavy heart thinking of those who have given so much. They are true heroes.


That freedom allows the little ones to experience the Sparkler Fun. God Bless the USA.




Celebrate T~T for 4/16/13

Celebrate copy

Playing with Adobe photo programs and using one of Kim Klassen’s free textures is the name of the ‘Texture Tuesday’ game, and then everyone posts their’s for the week at her website. It is interesting to see all the different, original ideas each week. Give a visit, if you’ve never and maybe you’ll want to participate.


This week’s theme was just anything that shows a celebration. I chose the words from my coffee cup because each day should be a celebration. I applied a colored pencil glow and then applied the KKStorm texture.

Below is my original.

Enjoy and please leave a comment if you visit so I know you were here even if it’s only one word. Thanks a bunch and Happy Tuesday
