Happy Happy July from Jean

The Patriotic festivities carry on through the weekend for many people in the USA.

Our July 4th celebration has many traditions dating way back in our history, all the way to 1776.   Picnics, parades and memorials to those who fought for our freedoms are often on the agenda.   A great day for hot dogs, watermelon, corn on the cob and Fireworks!    See more facts below.

I wanted to share some of our lovely Patriotic projects from various Designer Team members.....
