    What a great collection of ideas – I love them all! Thanks so much for featuring my fonts! Would you believe I haven’t done a single craft for the 4th? I have good intentions, but life keeps getting in the way! Maybe I can still do the Strawberry Blueberry desserts and the lemonade!

        If we have a cul-de-sac party like last year, I’ll have to spike the lemonade, LOL! I made jello shots last year and now every time we have a neighborhood get-together, everyone says, “You’re bringing jello shots, right?” – yes, all of my neighbors like to get their party on. 🙂
