Land that i love~

I've been meaning to start making some vinyl designs for the 4th of July.
I've been dragging my feet because it really hasn't even felt too much like Spring yet, but I am starting to get excited! The kids only have 7 more days of school!! Wahoo!!!!

I love our country. I love the 4th of July!
Not only is it the our great nations birthday, but it is also my brother's birthday.
He's one of my dearest friends and it's so fun to celebrate!

Here in Eagle Mtn. we have such fun celebrations in the summer.
My personal favorite is the city parade.
It's so old school, it's awesome. They throw out SO much stuff!!! 
Candy, shirts, otter pops, toothbrushes, frisbees...all sorts of goodies!
You know the Porters....we're all about free stuff:)

I'm starting to feel the summertime excitement buzz just talking about it!

Here's a little summertime sign I put together this morning.

These are 7'' X 10" pieces.

I started off by painting them *bright red* maybe a little too bright.... 

Nah, they'll be fine.

After which I sanded the edges and rubbed them with brown paint b/c I was out of gel stain. 
Paint works pretty well too.

Printed out my vinyl 

and stuck it to the boards.

If you'd like to make this project, you can buy the vinyl from me for $6+$4 shipping.
 Visit The Market for details.

If you'd like to make this project without buying vinyl, you can frame this smaller printable version.

Have a great day! I'm off to make cookies for Jesty's pinewood derby night.
If anyone has a great recipe for chocolate cookies...share the wealth!!!
