I'd rather be at the Beach Blog hop - Day 1

Welcome to the "I'd Rather Be At The Beach" Blog Hop. This blog hop runs from May 18-22. If you are coming from Emily's  Blog you’re on the right track. If you just joined us, you can go back to the beginning HERE and hop along with us. 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!

Here's the lineup:

Now, on to some good stuff.

My first project to share with you will just scratch the surface of hanging out somewhere where it's warm :)
I've created this super cute page border with a pull out tag.  Aren't these two bears just too cute?  They are patterns from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs.  I used the "You are my sunshine" pattern for the bears and title, and then I grabbed the sun file from the "Humpty Dumpty" collection, resized the heck out of it and made it the background for this border,

This border is loaded with bright colors ... Yellow, Orange, Lime green, and Red.  The little guy with the glasses is certainly prepared for all the sun he will be soaking in at the beach over the next few days! :)

I will definitely be offering up some blog candy, so be sure to enter to win.
Each day I will be offering a peek at the total grand prize blog candy.  There is one prize for this entire hop.

In order to be elgible to win, please do the following 3 things
 -1 Follow this blog
 -2 Become a fan of my Facebook Page HERE
 - Simply leave a comment on at least one post during the duration of the hop.   You have 5 days to leave at least one posting, so have fun!

The blog candy for today (Day 1)  is a $10.00 Gift Certificate to Little Scraps of Heaven Designs
