A quick post for the 4th!

Well the back yard is decorated, the food is ready, and now we are waiting for 6pm to roll around when all of our family and friends will arrive to celebrate our nations birth!

For favors, I made these cute little matchbox dies (using the Matchbox Bigz XL die and the Country Living Kit). I love how they turned out! I filled them with mini boxes of "snaps" because I wasn't able to find some festive candy (gotta love last minute shopping!).

A week ago I made this mock place setting for the party (also using the Country Living Kit). I tweaked a few things for the big day but it has been so windy here Eastern Washington, that we decided to forgo place settings and do buffet style.

Have a wonderful and safe 4th of July!

Happy Stampin'!
Carrie
