Beach Party Blog Hop June 25-26

Hello!!!! Thank you so much for joining us on this Beach Party Blog Hop!

Blog Hop

This hop starts with Abby here and I am actually the end of the line. Don't forget to leave comments on the blogs along the way!

I really don't feel like its much of a summer yet because of all this rain but this hop brought the warmth to me and I had a blast making these layouts.

I used paper from my stash and I am sad to say that I was being rushed and I do not remember the paper line. But I know that I used Pack your Bags and my teal expression

Again, I used paper from my last years stash and my Childs Year cartridge.

A close up

Hope you like the layouts!!!!

Thank you for following along with the hop and I am sure you all have been inspired and warmed by all the wonderful projects!!!

Have a great weekend!!
