I'd Rather Be At The Beach Blog Hop - Day 4

If you are coming from April's Blog then you’re on the right track. If you just joined us, you can go back to the beginning to Emily's Blog and hop along with us. We’ve had so much fun creating this hop, and we have a wonderful line up with some oh-so-talented crafters. You will find loads of projects with a beachy theme throughout this hop! If you love the beach as much as I do, then you won't want to miss this one! We have LOTS of blog candy to offer! Please check back daily for your chance to win!

If you are back for Day 3... Thanks for hopping again. If today is your first day here, you may want to start with day One. If you would like to see what I did yesterday, click  Here

My daughter had this box left over from nail polish I bought for her.  I told her that I wanted to make her a "Shell Treasure Box."  She loves to collect seashells but we always loose the tiny ones.  I thought this would be perfect to store them in. 

I lined the inside with a light blue pp that resembled water to me (not sure of the manufacturer). Next I stamped these adorable characters from Stampin' Up Fishy Friends set with SU Black Ink. On the cover and binding I used the Stampin Around Sandy Shells with the SU Whisper White Craft Ink. The final touch was to stamp cherish in SU Black Ink from SU Warm Words set on the same blue pp with SU dimensionals.

I also have blog candy to giveaway. I will be combining all the comments I receive throughout the week. The more you comment, the more chances you will have to win! I would love for you to become a follower of my blog but it is not required. Please leave a way for me to reach you in case you are the lucky winner.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Make sure you hop along to Gill's super blog and see what she has in store for today!
