Day 4 of the "I'd Rather be at the Beach" blog hop

Boy, I am having a lot of fun on this blog hop. I've enjoyed sharing my creations with each of you, I've enjoyed checking out your blogs and I've enjoyed getting new followers. Just makes my whole week!!





Today I wanted to share a layout that I did. My husband and I took a cruise a couple of years ago and I'm just now starting to scrapbook them. These photos were taken at a Stingray Bay in the Grand Cayman Islands. Let me say, I love the Grand Caymans! Prettiest water and beaches that I have ever seen.

Two of the stingrays that I used on this layout are laser diecuts. The cute one in the middle is actually one that I cut and is a pattern from Scrappydew Creations, who I design for. He is just the cutest little thing. Go check out Scrappydew, they have some pretty awesome patterns for you to work with.

All you have to do today is:
1. Become a follower of my blog...if you haven't already.
2. Become a follwer of my Facebook page...if you have an FB page.
3. Leave me a comment. ( I love getting comments)

Day 3 of the "I'd Rather be at the Beach" Blog Hop!

Hey! Can you believe it is day 3 already? Wow, time flies when you are having sooooo much fun on this blog hop!!!

Aren't you just having a beach blast? What better way to relax on the beach than with a cold tropical drink? I'm not much one for drinking, but I sure do love the non-alcoholic tropical drinks that are out there.




Tear bears are a favorite passion of mine. I can't help but love the cute little things and enjoy making them soooooo much. Today I wanted to share my tropical drink bear. She is darling. She looks good on many different colored backgrounds too!  I'll be adding her to one of my cruise pages very soon.  Hope you like her.

Remember to become a follower of my blog and if you are a member of facebook click HERE and like my business page. I'll be giving away another tear bear birdie for blog candy today.

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!!

Little Deer!

Hey Everyone!
Hope the week has been treating you well. I'm on a new design team called ScrappyDew. I really love their paper piecing patterns and their digi stamps. Please take some time and stop by and check them out.

I created this cute little deer from the forestpalz collection. She is absolutely darling. I just had to share her with you.
I used extra thick mulberry paper to create her along with bazzill cardstock. Then I added a pink bow with a lt purple button flower.
Don't you just love her big eyes?
Thanks for dropping in today.
Blessings.
~Margaret~
