I'd Rather Be At The Beach Blog Hop May 18th-22nd Day 2
Welcome to the 2nd day of "I'd Rather Be At The Beach" Blog Hop. This blog hop runs from May 18-22. If you are coming from Martha's Blog http://pattisscrapingtime.blogspot.com/ you're on the right track. If you just joined us please start from the beginning HERE at http://www.createserendipity.net/ and hop along with us! We’ve had so much fun creating this hop, and we have a wonderful line up with some oh-so-talented crafters. You will find loads of projects with a beachy theme throughout this hop! If you love the beach as much as we all do, then you won't want to miss this one! We have LOTS of blog candy to offer! Please check back daily for your chance to win!
Here's the lineup:
These were taken on our honeymoon in St Lucia. We were riding in the waves and having a blast doing so. We didn't have surf boards so we were body surfing which was very different. I will give you a run down of what I used to create this LO. The paper I bought at Joann's I believe it was Little Mermaid but I loved the glitter background since it wasn't over whelming and the sea horses. I found some ribbon at Michaels in the dollar bin and used that as a border around my pictures. Crave the Wave was cut out from Life's a Beach cricut cart and then I stamped it with glue and used MS glitter. I love her glitter if you couldn't tell already. We had lots of coconuts trees near the beach so I found some stickers at Michaels and used them for this layout with the sun and birds. It just brought back the day we had. I loved the waves I made using my gypsy to weld them together and then I bought some glitter paper from Michaels . Some of the shells are from the beach and some are from the CT stash.. Most of my shells were TOO big to use on a layout.
So what do you think? I love this one, as I love all of mine but this one just brings me back to St Lucia all over again!
Since this is a 5 day hop I'll be annoucing my blog candy on the last day. In order to be entered, you need to become a follower of my blog and comment on each day of the hop. Ok, now on to the next blog April http://www.curlsngrins.blogspot.com/. Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you tomorrow . Have fun!
