Summer and Vacation Projects Blog Hop

Welcome again to the Stampers with an Attitude Blog Hop for July!

We have a bit smaller group this month - lots of gals were crazy busy and out of town vacationing at our Close to My Heart Convention in Disneyland! Maybe you will see some sneak peaks of new products on their blogs.... crossing my fingers for you - and for me - since I was not able to make it to Convention this year. But stay tuned Ladies and Gentlemen!  CTMH has some amazing new stuff coming your way!

You should have arrived here from Melinda's Blog - If You Bling It.  Be sure to follow along to the other 3 Blogs and get some ideas for your Summer and Vacation Projects.

I used our Seaside paper to create these 2 layouts, along with 6 others - please come back and see them all, hopefully next week!  I don't have pictures on my pages yet as I am using these for a Retreat that I helped hostess last weekend.
The theme was a cruise to Hawaii  :-)  we had such a great time and one gal graciously offered to put ALL of our pictures on one disk so I will print those this week, get them on the pages and then re-post.   

I wanted to do a layout that I could get a lot of pictures on and this one fit the bill. I used the stamps from the Seaside Workshop on the Go, which I LOVE! I also used some of the metal pieces from the assortment, which sadly are no longer available BUT at this very moment the Seaside paper, WOTG and Stickease ARE still available, so order quick if you love them, too.  
(Secret:  The WOTG has the metal embellishments in it!!  Click here to order now: My CTMH Website)
I'm going to add more of the Stickease and some Sequins and Aqua Dots once I get my pictures on the pages.  

I'm sorry I couldn't get my pictures a bit brighter - I'll work on that with the next batch I post :-)

This next layout I wanted to show you because I brought in all kinds of fun stuff we got at the Retreat.  I was worried how well my outside items would match my paper but with a little thought and creative shifting of papers I was able to include this sign and napkin and my Room Key along with the Ship - we each had one on our beds :-) as well as 2 regular size photos and one small spot for journaling.  So always keep all those fun little things from your trips - you all do that already though, right?

Thanks for stopping by - If you have enjoyed my artwork today and would like to see more Seaside pages, please sign up on the right to get an e-mail when I put any new posts on my Blog.  And please also feel free to pass the link for our Blog Hop to your friends.  We love your comments!

Next on the Hop is Melisssa at My Heartfelt Sentiments.  Go see her and leave her some love in the comments.

See you next week - enjoy what we have left of Summer and Vacation Times!
