Yay! I am so super excited, that today is the Blog Hop Picnic!!
July 10th, is actually National Picnic Day, and I love to have picnics. I started having them, with my husband when we were dating after picking up a picnic basket at a garage sale. We continued this tradition after we got married, and had kids–and then our picnics became even more fun!
I hope that as our family gets older, we will still enjoy having picnics together–and I encourage you to try to enjoy a little old-fashioned picnic of your own, after hopping your way thru these FUN blogs!!
I am the first stop on your blog hop picnic–and I am so lucky to have 9 other amazing women participating in the blog hop today! I love each of their creativity and inspiration they give to others. So, I know you will enjoy the projects they have especially for you today!
After looking at my Picnic Project, be sure to become a follower and leave a comment for your chance to be entered into a drawing for a Cute Stamp set and Close to my Heart black ink pad!
Also– as you hop along, be sure to leave comments on all of the pages, because we will compile all the comments and randomly choose a winner for the new H20 Cricut Cartridge, generously donated by Memory Miser!!
The first project I made was a Picnic Bingo Game I could take with us on picnics. The kids love to play games, when we go on picnics, so I thought this would be the perfect little game to stick in our basket! I made the bingo cards on my computer and then each card is matted onto scrapbooking paper- and then wrapped with a 2 inch strip of cardstock and tied with ribbon.
I made a little apron invitation, using the Block Party Lite cartridge- as you can see in the picture below–as well as a caddy to hold plasticware or condiments. You can watch the video, to see how I upcycled, to make this cute and useful project!
