Life's A Beach Blog Hop Challenge

Welcome to the first of the blog hop sneak peeks! Today the Trendsetters and I will be showing you some projects created with the soon to be released set designed by Pien DaPino called Life's A Beach. This set includes 15 different images/sentiments for only $15!

I am the first stop on the blog hop and next you will hop on over to Becky's blog to see what she has made. Continue through all of the blogs, commenting as you go. When you have finished commenting on all of the sneak peek blogs, come back here and add your name to the Mr. Linky at the bottom of this post. I will randomly choose a winner and that person will receive their very own set of Life's A Beach! You have until midnight Saturday to enter this challenge and I will announce the winner on my blog Sunday. Enjoy your mini beach vacation while visiting the blogs ;)

Here are my cards-

When I first saw this image, I knew it would be perfect for a beautiful sunset. I created my sunset by coloring with colored pencils and blending with OMS. I used Nestablities for the card base and layers to go along with the TSG11.
Ever have one of these days??? ;) Each of these drinks is a single image. I stamped them on the white layer, colored with Copics and added Stardust Gelly Roll pen and Diamond Glaze to different parts of the image.

Here is a list of all the Trendsetters that are participating in the Blog Hop Challenge in case you get lost along the way ;)
