Dog Days of Summer

Hi Everyone! It's me again, Sharon. August is usually the hottest month of the summer, unbearable heat. Sadly here in my part of the world, it has been quite the opposite. Cooler temps and lots of rain...until this week. The week most of our kids go back to school and the temps soar. This week's challenge is to create something HOT or something to help cool you off in the heat.
Our fabulous sponsor is:

  Smeared Ink  
And their very generous prize is a $15 voucher to their store
Please stop over and show them a little love.

Here is a little inspiration from our team of very hot ladies:

Julia - Mer in Bucket

Mo - Calaveras Sugar Skull 3

SharonShe Grump

Sanja - Tequila Worm (Kenny K) 

And we're super excited to share

some amazing projects from two of the Smeared Ink
design team members for this challenge!

From Kapree

From Shoni

Our challenge will be open through September 2nd. Take a break from the heat, come inside, pour yourself a nice, big glass of iced tea, cool off and get crafty. Please show us your project by linking up with the Mr. Linky below.
We can't wait to see what you create!
