EFA August Challenge- Dog Days of Summer!!!!!

A fellow member of my artist group EFA(Etsy for Animals) came up with this great idea to do monthly challenges. It is a great way to showcase the various talent of fellow EFA members. Enter your craft or art item based on the monthly theme. The theme for this month is THE DOG DAYS OF SUMMER!! Pretty cool,huh. I already have my idea ready and the creative wheels are turning. If you would like to learn more about the EFA click on the links on the left under Etsy for Animals. If you are an EFA member below is a list of the rules and fine print for the challenge. Have fun and go EFA. The following info can be found at
