Summertime HOP with Best Creation

Welcome! Grab your suntan lotion and a towel and get ready for a fun Summertime Hop with the Best Creation DT to get some great ideas to get caught up with old summer photos and lots of ideas for inspiring you for this summer too!!

Our first stop on this weekend hop is right here on my blog and then off to a idea packed hop with the rest of the team and our Guest Designer for this month Shannon Morgan...

And of course we have lots of chances to win some of our New June releases and 6x6 mini packs too. Be sure and leave a comment on either Facebook or the blog or sign up as a new Follower!!!

And of course our DT loves, loves, loves to hear from you so leave them comments too!!

I made this LO of my cute kid cooling off in the pool in our neighborhood rec center. I used one of my favorite Best Creation collections, "Surf's Up" along with BC's fabulous glittery cardstock.



I thought it would be fun to add some mini beads to my layout for some added dimension. Helmar is known for its AMAZING adhesives so this time around I used the Gemstone Glue. It dries clear and doesn't cloud up the beads. Love that!



Now hop on over to Katarina Damm's blog to see what fantastic summer project she has in store for you.

Have fun!
