Challenge Ends on August 6, 2012
DigiDarla is the brain child of Kim Eskola and her daughter Emilea. 
Emilea and I both enjoy creating and when the idea of creating digital stamps came up, it sounded like the most wonderful way to earn ever! There was only one problem! We are both shy and dislike the center of attention! As a way of "hiding behind the scenes" and avoiding having one spokeswoman, 
DigiDarla was born! 
Working with Emilea on this project has been a wonderful blessing and has stretched both of us. Emilea is a busy teen with her passion for art and training our 2 horses, piano and violin lessons, and squeezing in high school classes somewhere in between! She is also the oldest daughter in a family of 11! 
Denise is a member of the Digi Darla Design Team

So lets's get to it!

The rules are very simple.  We are asking this "Burning" question: "What is Red, Yellow, Black, Green, Blue and has Rings?"  As you visit each blog, look for the mystery words which are hints to help you answer the question.  At the end of the hop, return here and leave a comment which includes your answer to the Mystery Question!

Jackson's Digital Expressions - You are here
Your next stop is =========>Kim

Who is this former American track and field athlete?

You will find the answer in the post of one of the blogs on the hop.  When you post your comment, mention the name of the Athlete and the Blog on which it was found.  Your name will be entered in a special drawing for a mystery (virtual) grab bag prize.

Before March 1976, this person ran only one 400 m hurdles race, but then began focusing on the event and made remarkable progress. The athlete's trademark technique was to take a constant 13 steps between each of the hurdles, pulling away in the second half of the race as rivals changed their stride pattern. That summer, he/she qualified for the US team for the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal,  In his/her first international meet, he/she won the gold medal and set a world record of 47.63 seconds.
After breaking his/her own world record the following year, he/she lost to West Germany's Schmid on 26 August 1977 in Berlin, his/her fourth defeat in the 400 m hurdles. Beginning the next week, when he/she beat Schmid by 15 meters in Düsseldorf, he/she did not lose another race for nine years, nine months and nine days.
By the time American ------- Harris beat him/her in Madrid on June 4, 1987, This athlete had won 122 consecutive races, set the world record two more times, won three World Cup titles, a World Championship gold, and earned his/her second Olympic gold medal in Los Angeles, where he/she was selected to take the Olympic Oath. After losing to Harris, he/she won 10 more races in a row, collecting his/her second world gold in Rome in August of the same year, and then finished third in the final 400 m race of his/her career at the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul. As of 1 April 2012, he/she still holds 25 of the 100 fastest times in the 400 metres hurdles. (excerpted from wikipedia)

If you can name the countries repersented by the colors shown here, you could win more images!  Include your response in your comment AFTER you have finished the hop!
