Happy New Year JAI friends! We hope that 2022 is a wonderful year for you all!

Welcome to our first challenge for 2022! As we always do, we are kicking off the year with a full team blog hop and we would love for you to help us celebrate new beginnings by joining in with our "Just Add Summer" challenge!

We asked the team to put forward ideas for this theme and these were some of  the suggestions...Camping-Relaxing-Hot-Summer-Celebrate-Colourful, all of these fit the theme of "Summer" so with those in mind you have lots of options for creating!

To start our "Summer Blog Hop" and see all of the fabulous design team projects, Click on Lou and from there you can complete the hop loop by clicking on the "NEXT" banner on each DT post!
