Just Inklined Blog Hop for July


The first Monday of each month, the fabulous design team of Just Inklined has a blog hop and as a guest designer, I get to participate, what a thrill for me! The hostess for the hop is the wonderfully talented Toni and the theme for this month is red, white, and blue, how appropriate for citizens of the United States busy celebrating the 4th of July today.

As you travel the hop, be sure to leave your comments because there are two spot prizes from two mystery blogs.

It was a hard decision but I finally decided to use Archie Butterthwaite and his favorite sidekick. I could not find design paper that I liked so I cut strips of red and white stripes, gave one side a touch of distressing and then staggered the strips, hopefully creating a waving flag.

If you have come to my blog from the incredibly gifted Jak, you have reached the end of hop, but if you are just starting, please begin at Toni's blog so as not to miss seeing all of the astonishing talent of the Just Inklined design team.

Just in case you get lost along the way, here's the links to each design team members' blog.
