Beach Party Blog Hop


Hello and Welcome to the Fabulous Beach Party Blog Hop!! If you got here from Amber at Stayin Crafty then you are in the right spot.  If you just came across my blog then make sure you go start over with Abby at Scrapbookaholic By Abby

You are not going to want to miss any thing on this hop. It is so much fun!! We are doing this hop to celebrate that the Summer/Beach days are finally starting (we hope!). We all created Summer/Beach themed projects and they all came out awesome!!

I made my card with the H2O solutions cart. I just opened it for this project and I really like how it came out! The Sandcastle is cut at 4 1/2.

The card is a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card.  The Layer is 4 x 5 1/4 using Echo Park Summer Days pack. I used the Divine Swirls Cuttlebug Folder for the background. I also used this pretty ribbon from the Dollar Tree. I used the White Sakura Jelly Roll to stitch around the Kraft Cardstock.


I used this stamp that I got out of the dollar bins at JoAnn's to make it an adorable party invitation. 

Thanks for coming and visiting my blog for this fun hop!! Your next stop is ALINA. Make sure you go over there and see what awesome project she has in store for you! Make sure you comment on all the blogs in order to be eligible for the amazing blog candy!!
