I'd Rather Be At The Beach Blog Hop!

Welcome to the "I'd Rather Be At The Beach" Blog Hop. This blog hop runs from May 18-22. 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 I 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!

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! :)

Now for my project for today! I was very excited when I got a custom order for a beach themed album about a month ago. Beccy wanted a Beach themed chipboard album to send to her family in Germany who came for a visit. She also wanted a page that was asian themed because they visited an asian garden. So I took her suggestions and this is what I came up with...











Now for today's blog candy!

Kimberly from My Craft Spot has offered some of her lovely crinkled hand dyed ribbons in these beautiful beachy colors!


To win all you have to do is:
1. Stop by Kimberly's blog here: http://craftspotbykimberly.blogspot.com/ and make sure you follow her blog!
2. Become a follower of my blog if you aren't already
3. Leave a comment on this post letting me know that you stopped by and became a follower of my blog as well as Kimberly's

Thanks so much for stopping by! Check back daily for more projects & prizes! Make sure you hop along and see what Dawn has in store for today!

Anniebee said...

This is really cute, Emily! I got a quick glimpse of the one for Day 2 when I scrolled past it to get here and I can already tell that it's going to be a new favorite! You have probably seen that same color scheme on my blog a couple of times! It just astounds me how similar our tastes are!

I visited Kimberly (had been there before but just became a follower tonight) and left a comment for her too. She does really cute work and her seam binding ribbons are scrumptious! You know that I already follow you and I'm so glad I found you all those months ago.
