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!
