Fusion and the Fourth

Well tomorrow is the 4th of July in the USA and we have a fun Fusion Challenge in store for you this week that will make you put you in the mood!

First, Cathy Weber is leaving Fusion, sniffle.  I am lucky enough to be on the Top Dog Dies Team with her but I know that we will miss her at Fusion.  Cathy always has lovely, unique creations and I am always looking forward to seeing what new and inspiring idea she comes up with.  Please stop by and give Cathy some love today!

So here is this week's challenge photo and sketch...



Wow eh?!  I think the  poppies in this dress explode out at you just like fireworks (appropriate for the 4th in the US)!  I love the sketch too.  Now for some reason I had a really hard time getting my head around this one, I struggled and struggled.  But finally I had a break through and am happy with the results.  Here is what I have for you:

OK, now here is what YOU need to do;
1.- Go over to Fusion and check out all the inspiration and rules
2.  Hit each DT members blog and leave them some love
3. Get crafty!

Thanks for stopping today!  Happy Canada Day earlier this week to my Canadian friends and Happy 4th tomorrow to my US friends. :)
