Welcome to the Mountain Plains Crafters Summer Challenge! You have not one, but two choices; go nautical or go patriotic with your creation. It's that time of season and we want you to choose whichever theme strikes your fancy. Create a craft project (card, layout, DIY, etc.) and scroll to the bottom of this post for the InLinkz to link up. We do have a few house rules, so read those at the bottom as well.
