Hello Everyone and Welcome to your last stop on the
Thankful Thursday All-American Blog Hop!
We are celebrating the All-American Summer with 4th of July, BBQs, and so much more! There are fun projects and blog candy to be won along the way so please hop along with us! If you hopped here from Leah's blog Leah's Card Designs then you are heading in the right direction! ***Leah must still be having blogger problems today so if you came from the talented Ruby Rose then you are still in the right place, stop back later to see Leah's fun project*** Aren't my fellow teammates amazing!! If you just happened to stop by to see me today (thanks), you'll want to start at the beginning of the hop with Jenny at Crazy About Cricut! So, enough chitty chat...on with my project!
Since I've been posting 4th of July projects all week and our Hop theme was "4th of July, BBQs and more", I thought I would mix it up a bit and create a project that falls into the "and more" category! I made an All-American Summer Vacation layout!
This year our All-American Summer Vacation means heading to the Jersey Shore!
I'm really excited because we haven't even made it to the beach yet and I already have some LOs ready for pics (which I'm sure there will be a ton of pics)!
I used the Imaginisce Splash Dance paper line for my LO. The title is cut from Life's A Beach and I added a few buttons tied with colorful Bakers Twine from My Craft Spot!
This adorable Jellyfish guy was cut from Once Upon A Princess (are you wondering where the jellyfish is on that cart???). It is a cupcake top that my Oldest E stretched with the gypsy, cut, added some google eyes and drew a cute little face on him!
We added some Pink Sorbet Bakers Twine and I tacked it down in the swirly design with Tombo Multipurpose Liquid Glue (just little dabs, a small amount goes a long way).
I was a little sad that some of the original chipboard stickers disappeared from my LO. I am guessing since neither of the girls would confess and/or rat the other out, that they must have been partners in crime! There was an adorable chipboard crabby here but since I have not found his new hiding spot, I had to use some of the puffy stickers. Still cute, just not as cute as the original element!
Again, I had a really cute school of fish up in this corner which magically disappeared! Lesson learned, take a pic immediately upon finishing a LO so my little scavengers do not have time to snatch the goods...hehe!
While we worked on the LO, the girls and I talked about the beach, and they drew me pictures of what they think our All-American Beach Vacation will be like!
We added their pics to the LO until I have the real ones to put on there! I know it will look a lot better with the real pictures but any Mommy knows that these pictures tell a story just like the real ones will!
OK, so who wants some BLOG CANDY? Today I have something fun for you! I have a 30 yard spool of Black Licorice Baker's Twine from My Craft Spot, a set of Imaginisce Splash Dance Rub-Ons, and a Stampin' Up Stamp Set!
