Summer Has Arrived

Today is the first day of summer and with it comes lots of thoughts of picnics, family reunions, holidays and relaxation for most people.  This is a circular blog hop with the Brae-ers so if you just came from Cheryl Peyton's blog at you are in the right place.
  Going on a picnic one thing that I love to do but never seem to be able to do much of.  We are in our busiest season as far as work goes, and with that comes many packed lunches. So in light of that I thought I would do a project that would help me to pack a picnic lunch so much easier, especially for Canada Day.  

I do not have the special Canadian military stamp set yet so I had to make do with getting a Canada flag from the internet.
The clear pillow boxes were the starting point for this project.  I wrapped some ribbon around them and then used a mini clothespin to fasten the Canadian flag and the little banner.  Find some red and white napkins and some plastic cutlery and my project was complete.  This came together in 15 minutes for me - one of the fastest projects I have ever done. I hope you like it and that it is a springboard for some picnics of your own.
Now it is time to see what Michelle at has created,  Enjoy the rest of the blog hop!

Have a great day, Lucy :)
