It's All About!

Good morning everyone!

Wednesday signals another Fab 'n Funky Challenge and I absolutely love this week's theme, dreamed up by my DT buddy Rachel: "Include some kind of shoe on your project"! I certainly needed to put my thinking cap on for this one, but I love the whole process of going through my stash and coming up with some ideas as I go.

I fancied using up some of my enormous stash for this card and ended up deciding on some decoupage. I've tried to create a little scene of the flip flop with a pebble beach and sea, but am not sure I've completely pulled it off. Oh well, never mind, I still like the card :) Have a look on the challenge blog to see what all my teamies have done with the theme, I can guarantee you that there is a wide variety of interpretations and projects!
