Just Beachy with InStyle Stamps!

Put on your swimsuit...
Grab your flip flops and sunglasses...
don't forget the sunscreen....
because we are headed to the beach!

Welcome to the InStyle Stamps May Blog Hop!

Our Theme this month is:
"Just Beachy"

We have lots of fun in store for you today! The DT put on their sunscreen and went to work on all the beach projects! There are many new releases over at InStyle Stamps today so make sure you head over to the store to check them out and place your order....let me tell you they are VERY CUTE and you definitely don't want to miss them!!! Like last month, after you go and view all of the other DT's projects (their links are in my side bar), make sure you head on over to the InStyle Stamps Blog to vote for your favorite project (I hope it's mine...hee hee)! The DT member who gets the most votes will win a prize....AND YOU CAN WIN A PRIZE JUST FOR VOTING!!! All you have to do is place your vote; then leave a comment on the post with the poll to be entered for a PRIZE! You need to leave a comment to be entered into the drawing. The contest will remain open until 11:59pm EST on Saturday, May 30th, and winners will be announced on Monday, June 1st.

Now....onto my project:
I had the opportunity to work with the new mermaid image...her name is Ariel! Oh my goodness is Ariel adorable! I just couldn't get enough of her....so beware you will be seeing more of her on my blog! I decided to make a gift set with her. I found this awesome starfish shaped soap bar while browsing around Michaels in the dollar bins and thought it would be perfect in my little bucket. Then of course you need a card to match! (Please click on any pictures to see them bigger.)
Here is a close up of Miss. Ariel! Isn't she so cute and tropical!
A close up of the card. I used the sketch over at Sketch Saturday. My Ariel really does sparkle IRL as I used my Twinkling H2Os on her but of course my camera can't catch that effect. Umph...I sure wish it could, because they both are beautiful!
Then the finished inside of the card! I decided since this was a beachy theme I sure needed to add Leila to my card! She's all decked out in her hula skirt ready to party with the mermaids! I added tulle to her skirt to give her more depth! Then I used my seashell shape from this card for the message side.

Now....Don't forget to go vote for my project....I mean your favorite DT member's project over at the InStyle Blog!
