Patriotic Pinwheels

Created these fun Pinwheels using subscribed Cricut cartridge When I Was A Kid. Recycled ice cream sticks for Pinwheel stick. Used a mini gold star in center of Pinwheel. Used Die-Namics Tag Stax for sentiment tag. Stamped Hero Arts sentiment. Attached sentiment tag to Pinwheel using Patriotic cord.

Photographed the Pinwheels placed in a yummy Central Market Tiramisu cupcake that hubby & daughter bought some of yesterday. We had dinner at Cafe Brazil and I had my leftover 1/2 of Club sandwich in a to go box so I sat in patio area and read while hubby & daughter went inside Central Market. I'm still reading Jane Eyre book and am on chapter 20. Did not think I would make it past the first couple chapters but it got much more interesting when Jane left the school where she was for 8 yrs and became a governess to an 11 yr old girl at Mr. Rochester's estate.
