Flag inspired USA- Sassy Sanctuary

Hello everyone!  Krystal from Sassy Sanctuary here.  I'm so excited to be here for another round of Wood You Like to Craft!  Its seems like life this year has been so crazy busy that I just don't find the time to craft like I use to.  (I'm sure it has nothing to do with the baby and now having 3 kids) So I just love having the WYLTC gals give me that push to create something.  Because each time I do I remember why I love crafting!!

4th of July is my very favorite holiday.  So I love all things red, white, and blue!  And my project this month was SO super simple.  All I did was get some U-S-A letters from the craft store and add scrapbook paper to them and a star.  Simple.

But they are SO cute!  Sometimes the simplest projects are the most rewarding.

Keeping with the "flag" theme I did the U in a blue, and the S and A in a red and white stripe.  (OK... its a chevron.  But if you think about a waving flag the stripes would kinda look like a chevron pattern.... right?  right?)

And I decided not to add 50 stars.  One was going to have to do. (But its a sparkly one so that makes up for it!)

But I still think that anyone looking at it would get the idea that its supposed to be a USA flag.  ;)

But the BEST part about my USA is that it made me finally put my mantle display together!

I have been a total slacker at changing out my mantle display and it was definitely time to take the Easter bunnies down!  I am loving this vignette!  Its my favorite one I've done for awhile.

Of course the star of the show is the U-S-A...

 but I also make a pinwheel banner out of scrapbook paper...

And added my fire crackers from a few years back with some mason jars and greenery.

I'm just loving the whole thing.

So once again, thanks for the inspiration!

Be sure to be back tomorrow to see what adorable thing Wendy came up with!

Thanks for reading!
