VBS "Submerged" 2016 decorations

If you know me, you know that my time the past three weeks has been filled up with decorating and preparing for our church's VBS. I've had a great crew of friends that have helped me on our decorating nights, taken things home, helped me paint, (even my kids helped me!), hang everything up and more. It all looks really great, I'm so excited for all of the kids to see it tomorrow!

Here is a sneak peek of what we have been doing...
 The beginnings of one of our undersea backgrounds for our auditorium...(two sides of the same one)

 The beginnings of a 2nd one...

 The 3rd one we made a transparency of one in our book, traced it onto our canvas, and painted it... I loved this little grumpy fish!
 The 3rd one getting more painted in...
 (Below) done... before shading!

 The 1st one getting sand put in...
 and water, with shadowy fish!
My friend took the 2nd one home and did LOTS of work to it, it looks SO cool!
 The 4th one began to take shape last week... we painted cardboard boxes, added some shower curtains (like windows), some cool paper, some fish, seaweed and creatures... it's so cute! A little observation aquarium....

My daughter helped me with it, so she wanted her photo on it before it was hung!

 We made some different kinds of coral and roped them together with fishing line...
 Here are the backgrounds all hung up, with my youngest and her friend checking them out. We added the big fish for our different age group names, so the 2nd one became the tiger sharks...
 The first one is for the barracudas...
 The 4th one is for the dolphins...
 And the 3rd one is for the swordfish!
 Pinterest gave us this idea for a door off of our stage, love this octopus!
 Another Pinterest idea... a school of fish in our snacks room...
 with a jellyfish and string of bubbles in the room also...
 Our stage became the submarine helm with lots of yellow paper, an orange stripe, portholes, and the sea scene under it. I hung nets and out the coral in front of it...It makes me smile to see it look so cool! Most of it was hung this morning, and the kids thought it was COOL! I'm relived that the set-up is done, but now we have the VBS beginning! I've been praying for this event for several months, and I know God will do good things while we are Submerged! in His Word this week! "We're diving down, we're going deep, into the Word of God and all it's mysteries..., " One of our songs says.

An extra special THANK YOU to my crew that helped me in the past few weeks! I'm praising God that He helped us get done what He wanted us to do to prepare for VBS. 

Here is our theme verse for the week:

"Search me, O God, and know my heart;
Try me and know my anxious thoughts;
And see if there be any hurtful way in me,
And lead me in the everlasting way."

Psalm 139:23-24
