August is Family Fun Month!

Hi, everyone!
We all know about holidays through the year such as Valentine's Day, Easter, July 4th and Christmas, but what about those oft-forgotten, completely crazy head-scratcher holidays that are rarely heard of, and often laughable?! Catch the Bug we will be highlighting some of the whacky holidays each week with some great projects and cards to depict them! We're calling it
Humor Me Wednesday!
We hope you will join us in the fun each week: take a peek at some of the different days by visiting the talented DT members for Bugaboo Stamps for some inspiration. Most holidays are just belly-busters, while others are just plain fun! :0) We are choosing holidays from each week for the Humor Me Wednesday creations, so we aren't all covering the same one. We're hoping this offers you that much more inspiration and fun! :0)

For my card today, I chose to use the August holiday: Family Fun Month. I like that Family Fun is a month-long holiday! I think it's a great month for it, too! I can remember going to family picnics in August when I was a kid. There was a little amusement park along the river where we would go for bbq, and they had a lot of fun family games planned for the day (through dads work). They had a few small carnival type rides, which were always my favorite (who doesn't love the Tilt-O-Whirl? I know I did!). Anyhow, this fun image reminded me of those days, so I thought it was perfect for this month-long holiday celebration. This card features  the AKV Carnival - Jumping Trio image.

I colored up my image is PSE, as always. I used the EK Success Mini Pennants punch for my banner pieces, and a Marvy punch for my tiny flowers. Then I added some rhinestones. The banner is on pop-dots for dimension.

By entering your project, you could win up to TEN Bugaboo images!
Head on over to Catch the Bug to play along!

One more thing before I wrap this up....
I am now assisting the DT Coordinator with some of the more routine things at Catch the Bug Blog to fill in some time for our wonderful Ms. Min, who is expecting Baby #1, and is happily preparing for the arrival! I'm helping out with some posting duties, and I'm also helping out by choosing a Bugaboo Stamps Fan of the Month! So......if you're a fan of Bugaboo Stamps (and who isn't, right?!), make sure you're posting your Bugaboo cards on your blog because I'm poking around Blog-land looking for YOU! :)

Happy Crafting!
