Happy 4th of July!

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!
Good Morning Everyone! 
Can you believe it's the first day of July? Yikes, where did last month go? So, do you have big 4th of July plans? We are planning on going to the parade and then to our friends cabin as long as the weather holds out. It will be fun hanging out on the pontoon and maybe even a little water skiing!
I have a fun little 4th of July treat box to share with you today! Little Miss Arya will be giving this to her Teacher at the end of the week along with the card that I posted yesterday. The box is a from the Silhouette store as is the cute 4th of July bear. The paper is from Creative Imaginations. The cute little sentiment is stamped with My Creative Time's Teeny Tag Holiday on the Square Stitched Goody Die. I fussy cut a shadow piece around the square for a little pop.
The cute little bear is cut at 2.21 on my Cameo. I added rosy cheeks, some freckles and glossy accents to the eyes. I even added eyelashes...isn't she sweet? It's hard to see but I also added Wink of Stella to the white stars for some sparkle.
I tied on a fun double bow with crinkle ribbon from my friend Karen at Little Scrap Pieces and filled the box with yummy Hershey's milk chocolate nuggets :) Yum!
I will be entering this in the following challenges:
1.) My Craft Spot Challenge #142 Patriotic
2.) Decorate to Celebrate Challenge #78 Fourth of July
3.) Craftin Desert Diva's Linky Party-Red, White & Blue
4.) Paper Issues In the Navy
5.) Little Scrap Pieces Show it off Saturday
6.) Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #217 Anything Goes
7.) Bitten by the Bug2 Independence Day
8.) Cardz TV Challenge #3 4th of July
