Summer Clipboard

I love to collage clipboards and vintage is my favorite.  The theme for this latest one is Summertime.  The quote reads as follows:

"I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer."
(F. Scott Fitzgerald)  The woman on the vintage post card has her summer parasol and leaving her work behind.  She definitely has style.  Hope you are enjoying your summertime.

July 4, 2011

Happy Fourth of July everyone!  We are celebrating our country's 235th anniversary of the signing of our Declaration of Independence. "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."  (favorite excerpt)

Last year I started an album with family photos of our July 4th celebration, family veterans, plus pics from our Washington D.C. trip in 2007.   New photos will be added as Frank and I hosted our second annual 4th of July pool party here at Rancho Buena Vista.  We also celebrated 3 birthdays, Granddaughter Sidney (11 years), Grandson Tyler (6 years), and nephew Chris (?).
