Day 2 of the "I'd Rather Be At The Beach" Blog hop

Welcome to the "I'd Rather Be At The Beach" Blog Hop Day 2 of the hop.  If you are coming from Tricia'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!

I'll be giving away a tear bear birdie each day, so make sure that you leave me a comment and follow my blog to be eligible for it. The last day of the blog hop I'll have something extra special to give away.

I'd love for you to follow me on facebook too. So, if you have a facebook account come on over and like me here.

Today I did a basic beach tag. I'll be using this in my own scrapbook . I used all papers form DCWV collections, Seaglass and Fun in the Sun. The papers coordinated well together. I used glossy accents on the surfboard, it gleams like wax. Love it!! I pop dotted surf's up to raise it off the tag and add dimension to it. I just love the beach ball at the top, makes me want to go and play some beach volleyball. Whoosh!

See ya tomorrow!!

Here's the lineup:

Dear Aunt Margaret,
What are glossy accents and where do you find them?
Your niece Chriss
...sorry, couldn't resist!

I recognized the DCWV right away, but I have never heard of glossy accents, it makes the tag look really cool! I am learning so much on this blog hop!
