Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring August's SOTM, which is Baroque Borders, a set of 5 stamps.  If you have come here from Adeline Brill's Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants here.
