Hey dUdE, it's like a TCP Tuesday Blog Surf!


Thanks for ridin' the wave with me today folks! I'm smack dab in the middle of a swanky TCP blog surf featuring awesome projects put out by the TCP design team featuring spankin' new releases that you surely don't want to miss out on. You may have landed here via Tracy's blog, and if not, you can start at the very beginning so you don't miss out on one single thing! Here's another great reason you don't want to miss out on anyone's TCP Tuesday blog post today: you can win the whole shi-bang, the entire Kitty Kat pack of the three newly released sets--By The Sea, Fun in the Sun, and You Sick Thing (releasing July 22). All you have to do is stop at each of the TCP design teams' blogs and Alma's as well, and leave a comment, that's it! Alma will be picking a weiner-weiner-chicken-dinner (aka: winner) on Friday, so sit back, relax and enjoy the ride!

This week's challenge is of the inspiration variety with the following inspiration for you to use for your very own creation!



Keep on a scrolling to see what I did with the inspiration piece. My SIL had one of these darling flip flop coaster/charm ditties that is intended to hold your wine glass as well as marking your territory, so to speak. I used a variety of papers from the Cosmo Cricket Snorkel line for each of the flip flops along with some swanky new ribbon from TCP (Candy Sprinkles RB-01) and images from the newly released set, Fun in the Sun (N-9670 CL).



Each of the charms was made by stamping the Fun in the Sun images on polyshrink sheets with black Stazon, coloring, cutting and shrinking--easy peasy! This is the first time I've made my shrinky-dinks in the oven and they worked out beautifully! I colored them with a combination of colored pencils and markers. Here's a closeup of Kittie in her floatie--ain't she just the cat's meow?!



Now that you've gotten to the end, I'm going to {thank you} for stopping over today and send you on to Susan's blog. Get going now!
