Summertime!!!!

Grab your suntan lotion and a towel and
get ready for a fun Summertime Hop to get some great ideas
to get caught up with old summer photos and lots of ideas
for inspiring you for this summer too!!

Our first stop on this weekend hop is to Liz's blog and then
off to a idea packed hop with the rest of the team .
If you  arrived from Karen's blog,  you are on the right track, 
if not,  head on to Liz's blog to start the blog hop.

It is with great joy to share that I live in a country surrounded with
beautiful beaches,  some with clear pristine waters, 
others with bountiful marine life. As a diver and an outdoor person,
I would not let summer pass without heading to the beach.

For my lay-out,  I played with Surf's Up collection.   I used zap dots by Helmar for some dimension on the page and of course Helmars glue. The waves were fussy cut and layered with the scallop paper.  Its my youngest nephew first trip to the beach and of course, this  moment should be recorded with style.
Highlight on the fussy cutting that serves as my sun embellishment.  The zap dots gave it the dimension I needed.

And now,  you should be heading on to Sarah's blog.

And of course we have lots of chances to win some of
our New June releases and 6x6 mini packs too. Be sure
and leave a comment on either Facebook or the blog
or sign up as a new Follower!!!

Happy hopping!
