Celebrate Freedom Blog Hop - Day 2

Welcome to the Celebrate Freedom Blog Hop. This blog hop runs from July 1st through July 4th. If you are coming from Tricia at http://lshdesigns.blogspot.com/
you’re on the right track. If you just joined us, you can go back to the beginning HERE and hop along with us. We’ve had so much fun creating this hop, and we have a wonderful line up with some oh-so-talented creators. You will see some lovely projects having to do with celebrating freedom and the 4th of July theme and have a chance to win some blog candy along the way, including some grand prizes which are being sponsored by Lisa from Honeybearz Designs and she is the first blog on the hop. In order to be eligible for the grand prizes you must leave a comment on every blog in the hop and become followers to all the ladies in the hop also.
Be sure to come back every day between July 1st and July 4th because all blogs in this hop will post a new project each day. Lisa from Honeybearz Designs will be picking the grand prize winners from all the comments left throughout the 4 days.
Here is a list of the complete lineup for this hop:
