I'd Rather Be At The Beach Blog Hop - Day 5!

Welcome to Day 5, the last day of the "I'd Rather Be At The Beach" Blog Hop. This hop has been sooo much fun! I just LOVE the beach and all of the beach themed projects that I've seen throughout the hop! Are you ready for what I have in store for you today? I've got BIG blog candy, a BIG sale in my Etsy shop, and a sweet little project!

REMEMBER, you MUST hop through the entire hop and comment on each blog to be eligible for any blog candy throughout this hop! There are lots of beautiful projects and lots of great blog candy, so by hopping along each day I can assure you that you will not be disappointed! :)

For today's project I was debating on doing an album or something different, so I decided to go with something different! :-)


I love altering things and clipboards have become one of my favorite things to alter! I used the "Shore Thing" paper collection from Imaginisce. I love this paper and have had it sitting on my shelf for quite a while! I also purchased the Beach penguin patterns from My Scrap Chick to use with this paper line. I plan on making an album with this paper line soon, but for now, I decided to just do this cute little clipboard. Oh, and the punch that I used on the bottom and on the tags is by ek success, one of my favorite punches that I own! I hope you all love this project! It was a lot of fun to make!


This little clipboard can be found in my Etsy shop for sale now!

Oh my gosh! This is so cute! You are so talented!

I just ordered the beach album and the "Life is a challenge" card from your esty store. I wanted the beach album you made with the Graphic 45 paper (I think it was day 2) but I couldn't find it. Since I live at the beach and decorate my house with beach theme, I love anything beachy!

This is so adorable Emily! Love the penguins :) i have not been to a lot of places but we went to the Carribbean on our honeymoon and I loved every place I visited there. We were on a sailing ship cruise which was fabulous to me. I would not go on one of those big cruise ships - sailing is the way for me! That is my idea of a dream vacation, sailing at night to a different port to wake up to - absolutely fabulous! Since that was almost 24 years ago and we have not been since but dream about doing it again - i would have to say that I love to vacation here at home - sounds funny but i live in Utah and we have so much to offer right here that i am perfectly happy. We don't have a real beach but we have the red deserts of Moab where i was born and I love Zions. i could go on and on, but i better not. Thanks for hosting this hop and for the chance to win such fabulous prizes!

I think that clipboard is adorable!!! My daughter's teacher would definitely love that... She loves penguins. We go to Seaside Hts and Belmar beach throughout the summer. My favorite beach is Virginia Beach. We went once a few years ago... it was so beautiful! tfs http://kimmarieskorner.blogspot.com

This really HAS been one of the best blog hops I've been on so far and I'm a blog hopping fool! LOL! Love the clipboard! I love to alter things too so this is right up my alley. Cute paper line too and the beach penguins are just adorable. You did a great job putting the whole hop together.

My favorite getaway would have to be San Francisco, CA or the Ozark Mountains. I love them both and they are completely different.
Thanks for the chance to win.
