Summer Blog Hop

Hooray!  Welcome to my blog!!  So excited to share my Summer creations with you! Hopefully, you just visited Shannon's blog, if not and would like to start the Summer Blog Hop from the beginning, please visit our wonderful, Hostess, Kathryn's blog!  There are lots of fun and creative projects, and you don't want to miss them!!

Living in sunny AZ, it is like Summer year around for us...almost!  I thought I would make a Summer Kit to share with you.  I used Life's a Party, and cut the treasure chest at fit to page.  It cut it at 11.5 inches.  I embossed it using a new Cuttlebug folder, not sure the name, but looks like Divine Swirls...and then put the chest together with "red tape".  I only use the "red tape" for boxes, as I don't want them to fall apart!  I cut the Sun, using Simply Charmed and stuck him on the front with dimensionals.  I didn't like the way the chest closed, so I cut the tab off, and applied a little Velcro...much better!  I then wanted some handles, and I didn't have any matching ribbon... that I liked, so I got out my beads, and strung handles for them!  It had been awhile since I used beads... kind of fun!  Here is the finished project!  I plan to get some little trial sized lotions, lip balm, and sanitizer to go in them!

Thanks for looking, please stop by tomorrow, as I have another Summer project to show you!  Yes, there is Blog candy... a $10.00 Gift card to either Jo Ann's or Michael's- your choice!!  To be eligible, you need to leave me a comment on today's and tomorrow's post!  How easy is that?
Now, you are off to Patricia's blog!  Ooh, so many cute things ahead!!  I am also entering this project in a Summer challenge over at Getting Cricky!!
