Splash - Welcome to SUMMER

Whew, with all the HOT HOT HOT weather we've been having in Michigan, a little SPLASH here and there is a TERRIFIC idea!

So, what's that have to do with today's Catch The Bug Challenge?
Well, it's ALL about SPLASHING!!!
Paper - Fancy Pants "Beach Babe" Collection 6x6 pad & Kraft
Coloring - Copics
Tools - Nesties, Cuttlebug , Sizzix Embossing Folder & EK Success Punch
Extra STUFF - BLING, Dimensionals, Doodling and Stickles

With this SPLASH Challenge and because I've FINALLY gotten it together (KIND-OF) to load the Tie-Dye photos onto the computer, I thought I'd share with you a few of our creations!

This is one of our Tie-Dye Creation Labs in Fushia - AKA Empty bucket filled with Dye  =)

Creative Creation in Progress - Yep, Glen and our frind Chris having a very IN-DEPTH Tie Dye Discussion
(Thanks to my hubby and neighbor for humoring me and letting me take ye ANOTHER photo).
Chris is already sportin' his first creation!

Creation Complete
(or 1/2 way complete - there is Navy Blue goin' on this one too).
Stay tuned for a Tie-Dyed Group AND Tie Dyed Ocean View photo!  =)

Believe it or not, we've got MORE clothing in the dye buckets - sure glad Tie-Dyed clothing hasn't gone out of style.  =)  Or if it has, we're sure working to bring it BACK!  =D
Hugs & Happy Days!
