Week 122: FLAG

This week's word is sure to have you thinking quite literally.  We know the calendar isn't saying there is a patriotic holiday anytime soon, but that won't keep us from using flags on our creations this week!  Of course, there may be some of you who find this word inspires you to make something completely lacking a flag!  Interpret this word however you want to!

Let's see what the design team and this week's guest designer created for inspiration!
