Our Daily Bread Designs June Challenge


The June challenge for Our Daily Bread Designs is up at Operation Write Home. The theme this month is water.

My card is a little on the random side. Here’s my train of thought – I decided that I was going to use my water DP. I have no water themed or nautical images. The paper looks like summer to me which means hot. People eat ice cream when it’s hot. I have a My Favorite Things Two Scoops for Flopsey stamp set. Let’s make a card.

Also, I wanted to try to do the Sketch Challenge #175. I failed miserably. I managed to get the horizontal element + the three embellishments.

Good Vibrations – Christian Nesmith Circe Link and Robbie Rist


I subscribe to Mike Nesmith’s Facebook posts. He was always my favorite Monkee, loved all his songs and enjoyed what he did after the show. I was incredibly happy that I got to see him perform with the other guys during the 30th Anniversary tour in England.

Yesterday he posted a video. His son Christian, along with Circe Link and Robbie Rist (yes, that Robbie Rist – the one who played Cousin Oliver on the Brady Bunch) did a version of the Beach Boys Good Vibrations. What makes it amazing, more than just their vocals, is that Christian played all the instruments on the song – he didn’t sample anything from the original.

The song is an offering for a Theme Music challlege – the theme is summer. They nailed it.
