What's Your Summer Blog Hop ~ Day 2

It's Day 2 of the blog hop and I am so glad you have come back. All of the projects yesterday were amazing and we had such a wonderful turn out! If you just came from Amanda - amandascraftsandmore then you are in the right place but if you just stopped by you will want to start at the beginning of the hop at
so as not to miss any of the fabulous projects along the way.

It was so much fun seeing what everyone elses favorite thing were about summer. One of my very favorite things is all the Bar-B-Qing that we do. Nothing in my opinion tastes better then when it's been grilled over flames on the Bar-B-Q.
So for my project today I decided to make a center piece for our table that I'll use when we Bar-B-Q.

All of the images were cut from my "Block Party" Lite cartridge. I used several different embossing folders to add texture and also some stickles and gel pens to make the images pop.

Here is a close up of the images.
I will be entering this in to the Decorate to Celebrate challenge.
