How I'm Doing So Far

my spare tire (pics)

So the other day our boot camp leaders instructed us to go to a local garage to pick out a used tire. we'll be using this for the first time at boot camp tomorrow. i call it 'bring your own torture device'.  Monday morning they also advised that 'prettiest tire' wins a prize.
My friend and I had already gotten some spray paint and just didn't have time this weekend to decorate, so she, another boot camper we've gotten friendly with, her friend and I met up at my place last night and turned my car port into spray paint central.

Saki gets hers started. We each had to coat our tire first with a solid colour in the spray paint that said it would adhere to rubber. She did aqua, I did pink and Leah did yellow

Nicholas managed to spray paint his hand lavender

Leah is a real trooper - she's washing her tire AND one for her friend Tessa who couldn't make it

Thank goodness I had the foresight to pick up extra drop cloths to cover my car port

the real trooper was Tura who came to help Leah. She's not even in boot camp

Leah gets creative

This one is mine - pink, black and silver

the paint finally came off my hands and arms when i was scrubbing dishes this morning!!!

Oh mi oh my! That was all fun! You guys are definitely creative to come up with that amazing idea. Your tire is so pretty, and the black, silver and pink colors looked so good with each other. BTW, did your tire win?
