Hugs Sand Kisses!


Happy Summer!!
I hope this has been such a pleasant season for everyone.
Welcome to Joy's Life Summer in 3D blop hop!
You are bound to have some great summertime inspiration.

(Please be sure to start at Joy's blog.
Below you will find a list blogs which are participating in the hop!)

 My summers tend to be be water based.
I grew up on Lake Erie in Ohio...
Swam at Club Carousel as a teen...
Missed the lake while in college...
moved into a subdivision where there is a pool 
so that my kids could group up swimming too!


This treat box is a perfect size for your summer time house guests.
Fill it up with some candies and place it by their bed side.
Or...Keep some of your sea side vacation treasures inside to cherish through long winter months!


Here is used a sentiment from Joy's Life: Pun in the Sun set.
In case you didn't know, there are a lot of nautical sentiments in there too!




There is a fish charm hanging on the Timeless Twine.
The seahorse is also a charm. I cut off the loop part.
Be sure to add  Rumple ribbon from Lovebug Creations!
Here I used Ocean's View...of course! lol

***PRIZE NEWS***
So, if leave you leave a message on this post about a happy summer time memory,
 and sign up to be a follower of my blog
I will throw your name into the hat for a $5 gift certificate to Lovebug Creations!



Additionally, Joy's Life is giving away a chance for a gift certificate to their company store to
one lucky crafter who leaves comments on each post!



I used Glue Dots ® to put together this SVGcuts cutting file.
I have two favorite sizes: Micro and Pop Up.
Pop Up Glue Dots ® are great for making more dimension on your projects.
That is how I got the top layer of the shell to "float" up above the bottom layer.

Have you heard about Glue Dots ® new dispenser?
Photo: Have you tried our new dispenser? Do you prefer the serrated edge or the roller feature? We appreciate your feedback! Thanks! http://www.gluedots.com/glue-dots-blog/entry/glue-dots-introduces-new-desktop-dispenser.html

Read all about it HERE.


Well, it's time to take sail...
and see what Kendra has floating around her dock!

Thanks for stopping by today!
