I'd Rather Be At The Beach Blog Hop Day 1




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  Lisa Blog  you’re on the right track. If you just joined us, you can go back to the beginning HERE and hop along with us. The Queen had so much fun creating projects for 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!
Now on to The Queen's Project for Today

Now The Queen has had this cricut cart
"Pack Your Bags" for quite sometime now
and never used it ... well hold onto your
swim shorts because The Queen will be showcasing it
all this week for the awesome blog hop...
Grab your sunscreen and favorite beach chair and enjoy...
For my first card I used the sand castle
because what Queen doesn't like a castle...
The Queen inked around the edges using
Tim Holtz Distressing Ink Vintage Photo
{really who doesn't love the effect}

The Queen used mounting foam tape
to raise the whole project off the
blue background paper

The card base was cut using
Lacy Labels it just perfect for welding
card shapes together...
I also cut out blue card base and used
blue stamping up ink Ballet Blue

I used a new stamp I got from
 now this stamp
was taken from the New Baby Set...
Which just goes to show you that sentiment
stamp can be used anywhere...
Love my stamps... Now what hop
would not be complete with out some
awesome blog candy...so The Queen will be giving away
another set of awesome stamps from

Just come back everyday and visit
The Scrapbooking Queen
1} become a Royal Follower
2} comment on each post for the 4 days
Easy Peasy
The Queen will have Random.Org pick the winner...

Thanks so much for stopping by! Make sure you hop along and see what
The Awesome and Talented Lisa has in store for today!
