Let's Go To The Hop!!!

Happy Friday my friends!!
This warm weather has inspired a beach themed Blog Hop at InStyle Stamps!! I was lucky enough to be able to use the adorable new mermaid, Ariel (available today in the InStyle Store) for my projects!! Isn't she a cutie??
Here are the details that you need to know (Vote for me!! LOL)

We will be giving away a Grand Prize to one lucky Blog Hop participant and one lucky design team member.

To enter, hop through the design team’s blogs (you can find them in my sidebar), and then go to the InStyle Stamps blog and vote for the designer who's project inspired you the most. (You're voting for me, right? LOL!) Make sure to leave a comment in addition to voting in order to be entered into the drawing for the grand prize.

You have until 11:59pm EST on Saturday, May 30th to enter, and the winners will be announced on the InStyle Stamps blog on Monday, June 1st.

I used the adorable new mermaid, Ariel (available today in the InStyle Store) to make a cute little giftset perfect for anyone needing a little pick me up!! (I could use that!!)

For my little notebook, I colored Ariel with my copics and used Shimmerz and Stickles on her for sparkle as well. I tied ribbon onto the spiral rings. I typed Notes onto cardstock and cut it out with my nesties.
For my card, I hand drew a seashell and decorated it with some super cute Doodlebug papers and some pretty ribbon and Prima flowers. I colored Ariel with my copics and used Shimmerz and Stickles for some sparkle. I used a really cute embellishment by Mark Richards for my water under my mermaid. Those gemstones are awesome, don't you think??



Remember, I need your vote!! Ok, I've begged for votes long enough!!lol My daughter Brittany was kind enough to loan me her Build a Bear beach towel and ball for my photos. Thank you for stopping by my blog!! Be sure you leave a comment so I know you were here!! I love reading your thoughts about my projects. Have a wonderful Friday!! Now, get hopping!!
