Slug Bug! - No Tag Backs!

Tuesday, February 8, 2011



When my girls and I are out driving we love to play the "Slug Bug" game. My fave car in the world is the Volkswagen Bug! I'm dreaming of buying a "Yellow" one some day! 

I made a fun layout and used the Sketchy Thursday's sketch. I'm also entering this in the "Fave Game" challenge going on over at These Are a Few of My Favorite Things  and also linking to Paper Issues. :) :)

I used a paper kit from Echo Park called Sweet Summertime.
The butterfly is so colorful. It's from K & Company.


I love the color of this Peace Sign. It fits in so well with the Slug Bug theme!


Had to add some flowers. They look so cute on a VW Bug.


And in case you don't know...this is how you play the "Slug Bug" game.
It's great for road trips.

This is a game in which people look for VW Beatles. Whoever sees one first gets to pick someone in the car to punch. Rules vary from car to car but the most common are:

-1 punch for a beatle
-2 punches for a VW bus ("double slugbug")
-If someone punches you and it turns out there was no beatle, you can tag back (give them a return punch).
-Once a car has been tagged on, it can't be reused until the car you're riding is has been turned off and turned back on.

You can modify these rules any way that you'd like. Just have fun with it! :)

Layout Supplies:
Patterned Paper (Echo Park - Sweet Summertime Kit); Butterfly & Flowers (K & Company - Girl Scout Felt Stickers); Peace Sign (LaPetites - 3D Stickers); Foam Alpha Letters (The Paper Studio)

How fun, Angi! Such a cute subject to scrap and such a fun page. Love all those strips of bright papers and love all the scallops, and of course those flowers and that peace sign are perfect.
This totally makes me smile. My DD plays this game, but she calls it Punch Buggy (no punch back), and she always catches me off-guard. :)

What a great page - and game! We play something quite similar, but call it "Punch Buggy". Buses aren't included though - just the Beetles.
