It’s the Simple Things

Good Morning!  Happy Saturday!  Well, we are officially into summer vacation at our house.  My daughter’s last day of school was Wednesday.  Thursday and Friday were crummy weather wise and I was surprised we all survived.  Lots of paper, paint, crayons, markers and glue came in handy.  Fortunately, my kids like that kind of thing.  The dog is even off her schedule! LOL!

Anyway, today marks the start of a new Catch the Bug challenge for Bugaboo Stamps.  Today we are challenging you to get out your red, white and blue (especially appropriate for our stateside friends with the July 4th holiday fast approaching) and ribbon

I love the Summertime Peekers and love it even more when I have one colored in my stash.  Even more when it fits with a challenge theme!  I used the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday, which worked perfectly.  The starred designer paper is from the absolutely fabulous Jillibean Soup Watermelon Gazpacho paper pad.  Some buttons, ribbon, Stickles and rhinestone stars finished it off with an appropriate level of cute.

We’d love to have you play along with us this week.  Break out your red, white & blue, along with your ribbon and link up your NEW project with a DIRECT LINK to your blog post on the Catch the Bug blog.
