You have an awesome list!! I love all the craft ideas you have. It sounds like a fun summer is in progress. Thank you for linking up to the party, I'm so glad you did.

I owe you a "tag" post...I am so, so sorry. I don't know how it got off my radar. I saw it in my draft list when I started blogging again this week. I started it and must have gotten sidetracked somewhere along the line. I'll work on finishing it this weekend.
