Sparkle N Sprinkle May Blog Hop - At the Beach


Good Evening! If you're here by way of Brigita Skopas http://gitascreations.blogspot.com perfect. If not, click HERE to get you started at the beginning.
Welcome to the  SNS blog hop of 2013. The Sparkle Team is so enthusiastic about our 2013 Blog Hops. Each hop will reveal a "theme" rather than just an "image category". This monthly blog hop challenge is At the Beach. So here is my rather large card which is 8" square card. I found this really neat product that looks and feels like sand. I then embodied the sea shells which some of them have Super Thick clear embossing powder on them as well.

 


I hope you enjoyed my large 8" square card and you can find the complete instructions here:http://sparklensprinkle.com/g/view_album.php?set_albumName=People

Please keep on hopping over to Dawn Bennett http://dipndotscreations.blogspot.com
Sparkle N Sprinkle's May's specials can be found HERE.

Every month Sparkle N Sprinkle has a Creative Challenge. Please join us for all the fun. And there are prizes to be won!


To give you time to really check out the fabulous creations that our talented Sparkle Team has designed, the hop will run for TWO DAYS May 9th - 10th!
Plenty of time to get all those comments onto each and every blog to become eligible for our great prizes!!!
Stamp Sets, Glitters (including the new Velvet Glitters), Embossing Powders, Flocking, etc.
To win a prize, leave a comment on each and every blog thru-out the hop.
There are two days to comment - so if you get distracted by life - you can just pick up where you left off.
Three of the prizes are "hidden" on 3 different mystery designer blogs.  Even the designers don't know who has the prizes on their blogs - so don't miss any.
Leaving a heartfelt comment inspires, motivates and brings happiness to each designer!
For those who have hopped with us in the past, the heartfelt sharing you left on our blogs also touched our hearts!
THANK YOU
