Lynne will be going through her stash and sending one lucky winner a surprise package to someone that remarks and gives bloggie love on each of the participants.

I have National Anthem Day. I love our Song for our country. Maybe because I love my country. I decided to print The Star spangled Banner off on vellum. Then I colored a flag with copics and cut it out. This is a 12" x 12" scrapbook page.

Copics used are R29, R35, R59- reds, B26, B29- blues.

Gelly Roll Pens used are Silver Metallic- flag pole, Gold Metallic- ropes.

The papers are by Vellum- Nicole Crafts, Bazzill- blue, Recollections- red and white, Philadelphia Group- clouds.

The next stop on the hop is Kimberly
