Welcome to the Jumpin June Bug Blog Hop

If you got here from Crystal's blog over at Crystals Crafty Creations, then you're in the right place.  If not, please click on the link below for Julie's starting post at her blog My Little Corner. 
Well, my other pics didn't post right so let's try again.  Instead of the beach pics, I've chosen to post a couple of my projects for the Red, White & Blue swap on the Cricut Message Board.  I sure hope my secret sister likes them.  I LOVE playing around with these colors!!  I come from a military family, so trust me when I say these colors are all around my house!!  Enjoy!
This is an altered notebook I made for her.

A close up of the flag "bling".  I love this bling and I had to get several for myself when I picked this up.

This is a mini album that I altered for her.  Hopefully she takes lots of pictures at the 4th of July and can put them in here.

 "How do I win them?"  So glad you asked! First, leave me a comment about my summer time project.  Second, become a follower on my blog and then leave me a comment letting me know you're a follower.  So, that's two chances to win!  After the blog hop is over, I'll use to pick a winner.   Make sure you leave me a way to contact you so I can let you know if you're the lucky winner.
