Just Beachy...


Hello and Happy Monday!!!

Monday's are always fun because it means that it is the E.A.D Designs Team Blog Hop!
{it officially starts at 10 am EST}

You should have arrived here from our Guest DT's blog, Lauren: 


We're sooo glad to have Lauren this month!!!

If you aren't hopping here from Lauren's, make sure you start at the beginning of the blog hop which is the E.A.D Designs blog.

Today's theme is "Just Beachy"!!!

I used the Pocket Full of Sunshine Stickerz for my little card today:



Swim trunks and flip flops...sounds like my boy...Did some stitching and the sentiment is A Muse.

I wanted to start with my valentine's too so I put together this little 3x3'er:


The apple is from the new Valentine Friends Stickerz...the sentiment is from A Muse and the twine is ala The Twinery...

Here is a little trivia about Washington and apples:

Harvest of Washington apples begins in mid-August and generally ends in early November. Each year, Washington harvests over 100 million boxes of apples, each weighing about 40 pounds. 

Make sure you check out Joann's blog for some fabbie blogaversary/birthday goodness...including some EAD goodies!!!!

 Check out the January steal HERE:


Okay, your next stop is Stephanie's:

Love that apple card, the simplicity and meaning of it is great!

Love the beachy card ~ makes me long for summer or at least some sunshine and a temp above 30 degrees.
I like the apple trivia too. My favorite apple is the honeycrisp which was created here in Minnesota about 5 years ago by the University of Minnesota.
