Tuesday Throwdown Challenge Sponsored by My Grafico

Boy, what a time we've had!  Allie's birthday party was on Saturday and what a great time we had!  But I gotta tell you, I forgot how much energy a group of kids can have!  I was exhausted and it took a couple of days to recuperate!

Glad to be back with another challenge over at Tuesday Throwdown!  Our sponsor this week is MyGrafico and what fun under the sea images they so graciously supplied us with to have some fun creating for you!  It was really fun because the theme is anything goes so you just can't go wrong!  I chose to use this cute octopus from their Sea Animals set because I think they rock!  They used to scare me, but now I think they're so much fun, especially this cutie.

I colored this cutie with copics and added stickles all over him.  The papers are from BasicGrey's Shine On paper pack and I love the colors!  They look so beachy to me!  I embossed the yellow papers and the aqua and green chevrons with my devine swirls Cuttlebug folder.  The gems are from Studio G and the ribbon is from my stash.

Isn't this face just so sweet?

 I love these papers and tried to add some browns with the stripes on the scalloped circle frame that this cutie pie is sitting on.

Make sure to stop over and join in on the challenge.  An anything goes challenge is a great way to participate.  All you need to do is make a card or project!  Also, stop over at the Tuesday Throwdown Challenge Blog and see the fabulous projects that my designing buddies have come up with for you.  They're all just so stinkin cute and I'd hate for you to miss out on them!

I love the glitters and all the details on your card. And what a great idea to use the stickers. The octopus fits so well with the background.
Hugs, Jacqueline
