I'd Rather Be At The Beach Blog Hop

Welcome to the "I'd Rather Be At The Beach" Blog Hop. This blog hop runs from May 18-22. 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!

Today, I am sharing a double layout.  I haven't done one of these in a long time.  I was inspired by my girls trying to "catch a wave" then "riding it in".  My layouts are on the simple side today but this will change as the week goes by, so make sure you come visit me daily. 

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 for visiting my blog. 

Here's the lineup:

Kimmarie:  <--- You are Here

I am very honored to be hopping along with such talented ladies.  Thank you so much for stopping by! Make sure you hop along to Gill's wonderful blog  and see what she has in store for today!
