Friday I'm In Love Week 6!

I absolutely LOVE the Fourth of July - it is by FAR my favorite holiday.  What beats summer, cookouts, and fireworks??  Seriously - it's my favorite!!  I have been so blown away by all of the unbelievable 4th of July projects and recipes I have seen (and I am feeling a tad bit guilty that I didn't make anything for the occasion since I was traveling).  In any case, I am admiring from afar - these are pretty incredible!!

Last week I stumbled upon this gorgeous Burlap Wreath that Michele at The Scrap Shoppe made.  Hello - so awesome!!  I have never seen anything like this - so creative!!

These Red White and Blue Swirled Cheesecake bars are only 133 calories per bar!  You heard me - 133 calories!!!  Seriously??  Katie at Dashing Dish is my new hero!  She has so many amazing healthy recipes on her blog - you have to check it out!  I love her milkshakes too - I have them for breakfast almost every morning!

I have been wanting to buy one of those tin stars for like 3 years, and have yet to purchase one.  I am so glad I didn't because now I need to make one of these 3-D Cardboard Stars for like, nothing!  Lisa at Grey Luster Girl shared a fabulous tutorial on how to make one of these beauties.  I think I found my next project!!  

 Jamie at The Crafting Chicks shared this awesome Fourth of July Subway Art.  Go and download it for your 4th of July gathering!!  How cute, Right??  I love all of the fonts she used - and the red frame makes it for sure!!

And, finally - check out these super cute 4th of July Pinwheel Hair Clips at Wildflowers and Whimsy!  I am a sucker for pinwheels, and never would have thought to make them for my daughter's hair!!  LOVE these April!

Enjoy your long weekend!  I hope your 4th of July is fabulous!!  Don't forget to link up tonight for Saturday Social!!
