June's Monthly Challenge - Under the Sea

This month's challenge is brought to you by Erika at Artful Rising.  We're going "Under the Sea" to swim with the fishes.  Erika told me she was thinking about the Little Mermaid, summer vacations, and the color of the ocean.

Maybe I'll use something from my vacation, like this photo I took.  If you're just starting your vacation, remember to bring along your favorite art supplies.  And don't forget the camera.  Mine was the perfect tool for saving memories and capturing images.  

So grab your boat and join us at the beach.  The challenge is open to all Blogging Business Artisans team members.  Here's some things you might want to keep in mind:

1) There will be 12 monthly challenges with a given theme. As part of the BBA, you are to participate in at least six (6) challenges in the duration of the year and blog about your entry.

2) One blog post must be submitted to the Team Blog linky about your Challenge between the 26th and the end of the month.

3) No late submissions will be acceptable.

4) Feel free to put any project you create in your shop, and talk about the Challenge in your description!
