My fellow Americans…



Thank you to all of our armed forces that ensure our safety on a daily basis, and to our founding forefathers who built this country on the values we hold dear.

What will we be doing over here at the Confessions household?

  • Getting up early to check out the July 4th Parade.
  • Possibly witnessing a rodeo. (Tinker Bell has high hopes of seeing a pig there.)
  • Relaxing and spending the day with family.
  • Maybe a little swimming.
  • Enjoying some yummy BBQ.
  • Talking the Teeny Tot through another year of semi-terrifying overhead explosions.
  • And enjoying squeals from the older kids as each one lights up the night sky!

I hope you will be able to enjoy a wonderful and safe Independence Day with those you love!


Digital Scrapbooking Template:

For all of you digital scrapbookers out there, I also have a fun star template to share with you. It was inspired from a class at where I’ve learned most of my mad graphic design skills!

Note: This is a layered PSD download, so you’ll need to have Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Elements to use it.

Here’s a sample of a layout I made a few years back using this template. The background is white linen paper, but it’s a little hard to see on this image.
