It's another week gone by here. This week Sweet Sketch Wednesday is being sponsored by Pixie Dust Studios. As I had the opportunity to pick out images, I fell in love with this Uncle Sam image. I knew even though it was past the 4th of July I still wanted to do this image. Don't you just love how Uncle Sam turns out? Pixie Dust Studio is offering our prize winner a gift of 2 digital images of their choice. You will want to make sure you run over and check out Pixie Dust Studio.

While my sister, Judi, was here she got me hook on these metal embellishments. So I had to buy a few. I love the look of them on this project. We were able to find them at Joann's. So I was happy about that. Then my star came from my cuttlebug embossing folder. The stars works so well cut out.

Well, we will be celebrating Stockton Days soon. My husband and I are preparing for our first Dutch Oven Cook Off with two more coming in September at the Fair. My husband loves to dutch oven cook and this is something he has been wanting to do for awhile now. Here is a pic of some rolls we are making. We have been doing a lot of practicing to get ready.

I think we are using less cheese on our next rolls...maybe even back to the cubes which I have always used in the oven. There are also onions on top. Such a yummy roll. Turns out great in the dutch oven.

Well, thanks for dropping by this week. Hope you have been well feed looking at my blog and all the inspiration I have here. I hope you will also run over and check out Sweet Sketch Wednesday Design Teams inspiration. Have a sweet day!!!
