Helmar Red White and Blue Hop

Hello everyone and welcome to the Helmar Red White and Blue Hop. We have a bunch of wonderful projects to share with all of you and wanted to celebrate the colors of our design team with you. Australia, Canada and America are shining brightly, so grab a glass of your favorite beverage and lets get hopping.

If you get lost along the way, you will find the order below. Make sure you leave your comments on every stop for your chance to win. We will select 1 Canadian, 1 American, and 1 Australian individual. So that is 3 prizes total. Now lets get hopping.

If you are hopping along you should have come from Susan's blog .........

Aussie Aussie Aussie Oi Oi Oi yep you guessed it I'm an Aussie...... I was rather excited about this hop and thought yeah i can do this and i can do that... then realised everything was in storage  :-(
So the thinking cap went on and off again, DH added his suggestion  'why don't you do up my esky thats real Aussie'  Yep a great suggestion  (god love him) but what he didn't realise was i left it to the last minute (too busy entertaining our guests from down south) and the time factor wasn't there .... oops.............

With all this in mind and time running away from me i reached for my Premium Craft Glue, some washi tape, flowers, mists and altered this plain white tin in about 10 mins, tied this little Aussie Tin to it - how's that for quick.  Premium Craft Glue is a great all rounder from sticking paper to paper, paper to metal and metal to metal it does the trick every time. So when your running a little late and want to add your little touch Helmar's always be there to save your day!!

  Thanks so much for stopping by don't forget to leave your comment for your chance to WIN!
Now head on over to JJ's blog and see what she has been up too.
 Have fun and good luck with the prizes up for grabs..........................
Got to LOVE that Helmar goodness !!
Until next time take care
