For the love of Scrapbook Paper

I don't know what it is about scrapbook paper...but I just love it so much! I have tons of it! More than I could ever use...but it's just sooo cute! Today I made these blocks just because I loved the paper so much! I have been meaning to make some 4th of July blocks, but I've been having trouble finding the perfect paper to use. Isn't that just how it is? I can always find what I don't need and can never find what I want when I'm looking for it! Anyway, these adorable papers have been sitting in my craft room begging me to use them. I look at them every day so finally today I pulled them out and made these crazy summer blocks. I think they are super cute sitting in my little entry zone. I am a huge fan of the lime green vinyl! I got 2x6 boards at Home Depot then cut them to be 6, 7, & 8 inches tall. Last night, I paid my 2 oldest boys and their cousin to sand them for me. I think sanding them is the worst part. I painted them real red and then modge podged the paper on. Maybe the modge podging is the 2nd worst part...but the end result was good! My house is decorated very simply and fairly neutral, but I love adding little bits of color here and there.
