Welcome to "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 you're on the right track. If you just joined us please start from the beginning HERE at 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:

This wasn't taken at the beach but pretty darn close, this was our private pool attached to our room. I had sun poisoning because I was silly and used oil during a cloudy day and well yep I got sick! So we spent the next day in the shade hanging out in our private pool. :) ENJOY!

The carts I used were Life's a Beach and Pack your bags. On the umbrella and center of the flowers I added some rhinestones with my I-rock! The coconut tree is a Jolee's sticker. I used ribbon to frame my pictures again. My drink I made reminds me of the Banana drinks. :)

Well thanks for stopping by! I'm SOOOOOOO Sorry I didn't have this posted earlier. Like I said I won't be posting the winner until May 30th! :) I hope you enjoyed this blog hop as much as I have!!! :)

OK For the FINALE, this is my BLOG CANDY!
this is a beach scrapbook kit and since its MAY I thought I'd add in a Breast Cancer awarness PINK Xyron sticker maker! :)

  2. Such a great layout! I have so enjoyed the hop! Thank you for all the great ideas.

  3. Awesome layout! I love all the details and that cocktail looks yummy! Sun poisoning really sucks! I got it once when my sister visited me with her two boys and we drove down to Galveston for the day. He youngest was only a couple of months old so I sat in the back of the car with the hatch open and took care of the baby while she and the older son went in the water. My feet got burned really bad and swelled up like balloons and I couldn't wear shoes for about a week. It was miserable! I hope you got over yours faster than I did. Live and learn, right? TFS!
