La La Land Beach Bash Blog Hop


That's right, I'm one of the Alumni joining in with the celebrations over at La La Land. Irina is celebrating her first year by having a big Beach Bash. There are hops galore (and they're all short and quick so easy to join in with. You should have arrived here from JANA'S blog. If you have simply stumbled in, head on over to the start over at La La Land to begin the journey.



If you were visiting my blog whilst I was on the team, you'll know that I was always using Maya the Cow, so why change? I have used the Summer Bill and Maya image to create my beach bash card. When I saw the image, I had the feeling that Bill and Maya were posing for a camera. I tried to go for a notice board type feel where people hang up their holiday pics. I saw these clips in Wilkinson for 80p for 30! (it said approx 20 on the box so a bargain to find so many more in it) Had to buy a box of them but now I have another 29 to use - any ideas???


As part of the hop, I am giving away a 'MYSTERY PARTY FAVOUR' as is each of the members of the hops. Simply leave a comment here to be in with a chance of winning the prize. The next stop on the hop is KATIE. Off you hop and have fun!

A final point is the fact that during the Beach Bash, Irina has put up a new digi image for release. It's special as it's her very own image. She'll only be available as a digi during the bash so go get your hands on her. So, without further ado, here's MARCI:



I'm also entering this card into a few challenges:
Incy Wincy - Summer Fun
Crafty Ann's - Lazy, Hazy Days of Summer
Creative Craft Challenges - Animal Antics
Craft Calendar - Summer

The more I see Bill & Maya the more I love them! Fun, fab card!

Sue from Oregon said...

Yep...this is your signature Paul! Great creation as always!!!

Maureen said...

It's so great to have you joining us for the hop Paul!! You have such a way with Maya and this card is fab!! Love the clean lines and that clip is the perfect 'bellie!

Another way to use them - cut a little rectangle of chipboard, round the corners then cover with paper or leave plain. Stick the clip on top and you now have a homemade mini clipboard embellishment! HTH!
