Crazy for Challenges Guest Designer

Hello blogger friends! Thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Can you believe its July 1 already. Summer is in full swing here in Pittsburgh with our hot and humid days. After our rough winter this weather is  so welcome, at least for me anyway.
I had my son, daughter-in-law and sweet granddaughter Phoenix Daisy for a week long visit. We had such a wonderful family time. I sent them back home on Sunday and now the house seems so quiet and empty. I will have them back for Christmas though.
One of our memorable events was going to the farm to pick strawberries and then make strawberry jam. Phoenix Daisy loves to help in the kitchen and she is only 3 yrs old. I can't believe I didn't get any pictures of our jam making adventure and let me say it was an adventure. But, I did get 10 jars of jam and some of it I will give away for a small Christmas gift to some of my friends and family.
Now onto my project for today. This one I made for my final week as guest designer with the Crazy For Challenges team. Peggy's challenge was to make a card or project that depicts the season where you live. I immediately thought of July 4th. And, my June Paper Pumpkin kit arrived right in time for this challenge.
The kit contained everything I needed to make the pinwheels. All I had to do was find the right vase and add some stones to display my project. They make a perfect table decoration.
I also thought they would look good added to a napkin for a festive place setting.
Well, that's it for me for today. Drop over to the Crazy For Challenges blog and check out what the other talented designers have created.
So until next time............God bless.
