Summer Fun with BBTB2 & FCCB Challenges

Happy Monday!

Hope you all had a fabulous weekend!

Bitten by the Bug 2

Seeing as how the first official day of summer was on Saturday,
we have a very fitting challenge starting over at BBTB2 -
Summer Fun!

We want you to show off projects displaying
your favorite things about summer!

Here is my project:
I am seriously LOVING the Pack Your Bags cartridge,
there are so many FUN cuts!!!
I love this one with flip flops and sunglasses!
There's no better way to enjoy summer than with this duo, right?!?!

I used some small yellow flowers and purple rhinestones
to embellish up the flip flops
(I still want to call these "thongs" - does that date me?)
I also embossed them upside down with Swiss Dots.

The sentiment "Summer Lovin'" comes from
Craftin' Desert Divas.
And I used Zig Zag scissors to cut out the mat.

My paper is from a Recollections pack
and the twine is from American Crafts.

I used the colors Purple, Yellow and Gray for the
new challenge over at FCCB...
