American Celebration Blog Hop....

July snuck up on me!!!  I had grand intentions of getting the artwork done BEFORE the wedding so I wouldn't have to be in my scrapbook room on my "honeymoon"...and by that I mean the small window of time with no kids...lol. 

EDITED TO ADD: I've finally been able to get in my scrapbook room and instead of making 80+ "Thank You Cards", I decided to do this card using July's SOTM, American Celebration!!!  I totally cased the idea from one of my MAJOR sources of inspiration....Betsy Veldman (Paper, Scissors and SuperHeroes)...I saw the card a week or so ago and knew immediately that I was going to transform her PaperTrey Ink card into an all CTMH card!!!  I think it went pretty well...

I think I'm so late in the game that I've been skipped but you can keep hopping to Dawn's Blog and pick up the hop there!  Keep on hopping 'till you get back around to where you started! 

Leave some love along the way by taking the time to comment and if something inspires you, purchase the stamp set from your Consultant (or e-mail me to find out how to get your hands on it).

Congratulations Katy! I've been following all your preparations for the wedding and all the amazing invites/decorations you've been making for it. I hope that it went exactly as you'd hoped and I am looking forward to seeing some pics of how it turned out...after the honeymoon is over of course! ;O)
