Join us Friday night (tonight) for the TSG Chat - at the TSG Forum!!! It will start 6-8 PM Pacific Time (9-11 Eastern Time)!!!

Now on to the Challenge!!! This week it is all about a *TROPICAL GET-AWAY*!!!

Holly has provided this great website for inspiration. Your Challenge is to pick one of the tropical art pieces from this site and create a card or project. Jessica is giving away extra brownie points for using bright colors!!!

Here is the art piece I chose!!! I really liked the fun colors :) !!!

Of course I chose the TSG - Life's a Beach Set!!! Isn't it fun??? Did I make it bright or what - LOL??? I love the new Crushed Curry color!!! I think I'll get some extra brownie points - *wink*!!!

I thought I'd do some sponging with this image - I used Bashful Blue for the sky and Crushed Curry for the sun!!! The rest of the image was colored with Copic Markers.

Hope you will have time to play along and maybe we'll see you tonight for the chat???

Please stop by Jessica's blog for more info and to don't forget to add your creations to the TSG Forum !!!
