Are you enjoying the blog hop?  It's now day seven and it has been fun to see what everyone has been coming up with.  As I've watched the different ideas popping up I wonder about my own.  Not because I'm not totally thrilled with how mine evolved, but seeing there modern takes makes me wonder if I was to traditional.  
But no worries there is a traditional category too.  You can read all about the rules for this fun challenge here.  Then let your creative juices start to come up with your own idea.  Will it be modern or traditional?
Whatever style you choose the prizes are awesome!  Look at these great sponsors.  

So sit back and check out all the great inspiration with these great blogs in the all part of the hop and enter to win one of these versatile tools at each spot.  Just leave a comment here for your chance at the one I have to giveaway.  I'll pick the winner Monday.
