Hello, friends! Happy Friday and Happy Independence Day!!! :) I'm sure many of you have celebrations happening today/tonight!?!...May each of you enjoy them!

Today, also marks a new challenge at The SRM Challenge blog! And we've changed things up, just a tad bit! ;) We now have 4 different challenges you can choose from! You can play along with just one or you can play with all 4...It's up to you! Check it out!

How fun are these challenges!?!...So, for me I chose to use the flip flops as inspiration. I saw the colors and loved them. Though, I was quite lost at first on what to do. Then, after some trail and error, I ended up with this!

Okay, so I stuck with the colors. I knew I wanted to use some grey, but honest didn't have much of the 'grey' I was thinking of. Then, a light bulb went off and I used a silver doily! I thought that was a nice bold touch and worked well!?!...Now, I was gonna use some kind of pink flowers, but was having trouble putting all that together. Then, another light bulb went off and a pink umbrella is what I got from it! Thinking, okay an umbrella can fit in with flip flops, right?!...You go to the beach or maybe even a pool and you wear flip flops and may sit under an umbrella, yeah. That works with the inspiration photo, right?!...I threw in some clear sequins and to top it off, I used a wood veneer banner for the sentiment. Thought, that added nicely due to the photo have a brown background. So, what do think?!...

I hope you'll join us at The SRM Challenge!?!...Be sure to swing on over and see all the fabulous Guest Designer and DT creations!!! And you'll see what's up for grabs...Fun stuff, I tell ya! ;)

And again, Happy 4th of July!!! Enjoy!
