Patriotic Blog Hop from Your Scrapbook Place

It's that time of year when watermelons are chillin', grills are heating up, firecrackers are ready to light, and Americans celebrate with "Star-spangled happiness and banner waves of pride" (Cherishe Archer)!
Welcome to Your Scrapbook Place Blog Patriotic Blog Hop!  The theme is love of America and the color RED.  If you're coming here from Karissa's Blog, you are on the right path.  If you lose your way, you can start fresh at Your Scrapbook Place.
Designers are using a special image from one of their own, Pammie Lehto, and one lucky hopper will win this digi, as well as a patriotic-themed Goody Bag!
Each participating designer is in the running for prizes, too, so leave a little love at each blog along the way.
My card has the following recipe all from my scraping stash:
  • Deep red double-sided paper that's printed with 4th of July phrases-the blue polka-dots is the backside
  • Use of Label and oval die cuts to frame the phrase and the gorgeous digi from our Pam-the flowers make it so versatile for color choices
  • star ribbon and stickles for the flag stars.
Here is the Blog Hop order and remember to leave a little Luv along the way please-I would love for you to become one of My Followers and ALSO a follower of Your Scrapbook Place! We're a great group of friends sharing our love of Scrapbooking and Fellowship:
