It's A . . .

Pocket Challenge today at The Bug Blog!!
And let me tell you, this was a bit of a challenge for me!!  Pockets aren't something that I use on a regular basis (unless you take into account the pockets I always leave my lip balm in and then run through the wash!)
So, what did I do with this POCKET challenge??
Well, I got out my scrappy tools and whipped up a scrapbook layout about -
The Tie Dye Craze....In Our Back Yard.

If you remember me mentioning the this summer the Tie Dye T-shirt Booth for the Grateful Dead Concert in our Backyard, then you'll smile at the page going in our Album - what's that they say - if it Ain't in the Scrapbook, it didn't happen!  =)

The great thing is Jodie has a super cute Dottie Hippie that is PERFECT for this layout (don't you think).  Heck, I even included a photo of Glen and I in our Tie Dyes on the beach in Punta Cana when we too our Anniversary Vacation, and photos of Glen and Chris creating their works of art!!
Image - Bugaboo Stamps "Dottie Collection" - Dottie Hippie
Papers - Kraft, Bazzill & DCWV Hippie Collection
Coloring - Copics
Tools - Cuttlebug, Nesties, Sizzix Scallop Die, Die Cutting Machine and Make The Cut for the Title, EK Success Punch
Extra STUFF - "PEACE, LOVE & TIE DYE" title cut with die cut machine, Felt (for heart), Stickles, Bling, Dimensionals, Prima Flower, Wooden Sun from J's or M's (can't remember which)

So, WHERE'S the Pocket I've referred to that was such a challenge for me?
Well, right here of course - a secret little place for me to tuck the journaling into (so our kids don't think we're total nut jobs when they look at these albums years from now.  =)
Thanks so much for stopping by to visit today - be sure to pop on over to The Bug Blog and check out what the rest of the design team created - you'll be AMAZED at all the pockets!! =)
Hugs & Happy Days!
