Taylored Expressions July Blast from the Past Blog Hop!

Hi there! Welcome to the Taylored Expressions July Blast from the Past Blog Hop! Each month, Taylored Expressions has a blog hop for it's customers to join in on the fun...you can find all the details HERE! This month's theme is Sending You Sunshine!

I hope you made it here from Cassie's Blog and if so, you are on the right track! There's a list at the bottom of this post if you need to get back on track too!

Here's my card using Sankari's fun sketch...



Today, I am using one of my favorite Taylored Expressions stamp sets called Hangin' Out - At the Beach! In just a couple weeks, I'll actually be 'hanging out at the beach' on vacation...I can't wait! I have never used this little polka dot bikini stamp in this set, so I figured it was about time! And...how much more perfect could this sentiment be for this month's theme!!! It's from the A Year of Sweet Sentiments set!


I added lots of bling including a little sunburst around the word sunshine and I fashioned some bling to look like a tie on the bikini top! A triple layer seam binding bow and a little brad holds it all together!

You're next stop on the hop is Natalie's Blog! Have a great time hopping along today!
