1st August...aka Monday

Morning!!! It's August!!!

which means....

The new challenge for the month is up at scrapforhelp! (or it will be, depending on the time difference...) This month's theme is "Fathers" (apparently Father's Day is celebrated in August in Brazil - who knew?) and you'll have to use a bottle cap / cigar / matchbox on your work.

Here's what I made - for the Critters' 'Pop' - and yes, that is what they call him - Pop

 It's a small altered shadowbox frame with a collection of all kinds of bits and bobs to symbolize all the things he does for them.  You can have a closer look if you'd like...
And today is also.... Monday!!!

Which means....

As promised, somebody gets to win this:
And so...... Hi Julia Cheang!  I drew your name out of the hat!  You need to email me your address (write to sngooies@gmail.com) so I can send you this stack of paper K?  :)

Hope your August and Monday is turning out Spiffy! (love that word - we're using it a lot around our house these days with Benny reading Calvin and Hobbes all the time)... see you soon!
