I am trying to do better updating my blog, so I wanted to share this great Fourth of July scrapbook page with you. This is actually from July 4, 2014, but I am just now getting around to finishing it and getting it posted. I know, I know, I'm a little behind, but hey we all are, right?
I really wanted to use my Lawn Fawn, Wish you were here stamp and die set, but it just wasn't enough. So, I cut out the starts, the firework and the eagle using my cricut (Independence Day and Artbooking cartridges). Then I used my Cricut Explore and the font "Stars From Our Eyes" to cut out the title. I found the font on DaFont.com. I really love that site, now that I have an explore. I really love how this page turned out and I feel that the black and white picture of my son and I really pops off the page.

Every year, since we moved to Denton, we have gone to the University of North Texas football stadium to watch their fireworks show. Dallas and I, both love the show (with the exception that it is crazy loud), and love that we get to spend time with some of the wonderful new friends we have made.
This scrapbook page is actually from 2013, but I am just now getting around to blogging about it. It features my son, Dallas and his best friend, and our neighbor, Hailey. I wanted to create a page that screamed Independence Day, which was harder than I thought. I have been scrapbooking for a long time now, and I wanted a page that was unique and different from the others I had made. I decided on some patriotic papers, then broke out my Independence Day Cricut Cartridge, and started looking through the images until I found one that I thought would be a good focal point. The rest of the page, just fell into place, and I absolute love how it turned out. Now on to come up with another great idea for this year's pictures :)

My name is JoNeita Kelly and I have been crafting for at least the last 20 years. I live in Forney, Texas with my son, Dallas. I am a High School teacher and Cheerleading Coach. I love to craft and to continue to improve my photography and editing skills whenever I have free time. What I love most is telling our story using pictures, it is the most important gift I can leave my family.
