Flip Flops Are Done

I finally finished the flip flops for the swap I'm in. Jennalee from Artrageous Afternoon is hosting this event and once I got into it, I had a lot of fun, but boy oh boy, I had a hard time with this one. My creations are below.

My one and only other swap I did with Jenn was the Easter Egg garland which was lots of fun. I don't know why I had such a hard time with the flip flops. I guess because it was hard to get past the fact that you wear flip flops so they couldn't have any texture to them because you certainly couldn't have texture under your feet! I had to keep telling myself that this was a creative enterprise and texture is good, but Easter Eggs were definitely easier for me to make!! We'll be making these flip flops into a garland also and I'm anxious to see the ones I get in return.

The next project I have to work on are ATC's for an ATC Club I recently joined at my local scrapbooking store. Our theme for this month is "Under the Sea" and I really love what I have planned. I'm going to be including some sand and shells from Sanibel and I am excited to get working on them.

Sanibel is beautiful. While these next two shots are not the best, I wanted to share the view from the living room of the condo we're staying at, as well as a picture of Rachel standing in the Gulf of Mexico.

Vacation time is such fun!!
