The Hippity Hop April 19-21

Welcome to a Super fun Hop!  I know that you will enjoy this hop and find lots of Great Inspiration.  So Lets get started!  First off I want to thank Melissa for having me on this hop.  Second this was totally a Last Minute thing for me.  I just had to join in on the fun and I am so glad I did.  If you are coming from Deborah's blog ~, then you are at the right place.  If not you will want to start at the beginning with Kadoodle Bug Design Blog ~   I was able to pick any file from  It was a hard decision but this is the file I choose; "The Happy Hippo Family"

Why Hippos?  Well I live in a small city just outside of Austin, TX and our Mascot is none other than a HIPPO!  We are known as the "Hutto Hippos"!!! LOL!!  So This is what I created with the file:

Okay so it is not my Best work, and I have a small confession to make, I have not glued anything on yet.  I know, I know!  But I wanted to make sure I got it in on time.  So I decided since this is a two day hop, I will post the completed Layout with more embellishments, tomorrow.  So Please come back to see the finished Layout.  Okay, I'm the last one on the hop, so you are done!
