I'd Rather Be At The Beach Blog Hop - Day 3!

Welcome to Day 3 of the "I'd Rather Be At The Beach" Blog Hop. This blog hop runs from May 18-22. 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 made another paper bag album... if you haven't figured it out yet, I LOVE to make albums, especially paper bag albums! This one also doubles for my project for today for the Little Scraps of Heaven Designs DT. We were supposed to create a project with stripes, polka dots, and a LSHD paper piecing. I used the cute little surfing monkey from the Fun in the Sun Monkey Pattern Collection. I do believe this is one of the smallest paper piecings that I have ever done! It gets really difficult when the monkey stands only 3 inches tall! Tweezers definitely come in handy! I hope you enjoy this album! I've been hanging onto this paper for the perfect project, so finally, I think I found it! The paper is from the "Beachy Keen" line by Bo Bunny.

I hope you enjoyed my little project for today! It is now up for purchase in my Etsy Shop!

Now for today's blog candy!
