Back in the Studio Again!

I don't know about you, but this week between the weather warming up and the 'outdoor' projects, it seems like I'm seeing less and less of my studio......Sniff Sniff.....
So, my excuse today was that it was necessary for me to spend time in my studio downstairs for two reasons - ONE:  It was SO MUCH COOLER than the rest of the house and TWO:  I was trying to keep our lump of fur a bit cooler without us having to turn on the AC.  For some reason Gizmo just doesn't understand Basement = COOL, Rest of House = SWEAT YOUR FUR OFF!!

And of course, WHILE I was trying to keep Gizmo cool, it was only fitting that I worked on some scrappy projects!!  The big one - Ms. Bev's TTT Challenge that she posted over at Shelly's Images last Thursday.  I've had these adorable flip flops printed out for over a week and just haven't been able to get to them.  If you haven't figured it out - I LOVE FLIP FLOPS!!  My tooties often as myself in the middle of winter when we have 12" of snow, are wearing thick boots and dealing with -20* wind chills - "Self - WHY OH WHY do we live in Michigan?"  Self sometimes answers, "I have no stinkin' idea" (that's usually after a bad commute thru snow with bad drivers).  LOL  But then Spring arrives and my tooties are reunited with their long lost flip flops and all is right with the world.

Whew, talk about digression.  Anyway, you still have a little bit of time left to join us at Shelly's Images for Ms. Bev's Challenge yet - until 11:59 tonight.  And woudln't you know it, this card fits the Sew Many Challenges Anything Goes Challenge too!  I LOVE IT when I can play in two challenges at once!!
