Sentimental Sundays Summer Blog Hop

Good mornin everyone-
Welcome to the Sentimental Sundays “Celebrate Summer” blog hop. Tuesday, June 21 is the official first day of summer in the northern hemisphere and we are ready for all the summer fun to begin. For our friends down under who are moving into their winter months and may not feel like creating a summery project, they may be making “Sparkly or Shimmery” projects. What girl doesn’t like her bling?
You should have arrived here from Kimberly's Blog. If you didn't arrive from her blog and would like to join in the hop, please start at the Sentimental Sundays challenge blog.
So for today's hop i created a card with this cute image form Some Odd Girl, her name is Beach Babe Kaylee.....Isn't she stunning in her orange and yellow bikini!!!  I think she's a little over tanned but, she doesn't mind!! LOL.  I paired this image up with "Fun in the sun" sentiment, from Raindrop Echo which can be found here.
This is a side shop to show you the shimmer around her glasses and on her sandals!!!
We hope you will join in our “Summery or Sparkly” (plus a sentiment) challenge this week. Our sponsor is the marvelous Ann Vento of Raindrop Echo Designs. This prize will be four INDIVIDUAL sentiment sets from the Raindrop Echo Designs Whimsy Stamps Digital Collection.
Your next stop on the hop is Nicole.  If you should happen to get lost along the way, you can find the blog hop list over at the Sentimental Sundays challenge blog.  Don't forget to leave comments along the way because there are 3 mystery DT members who will each choose a winner from the comments left on their blog hop posts. The winners will each win a $10 gift certificate to Whimsy Stamps! The hop ends on Friday, June 24th at midnight EST. The winners will be announced on the Sentimental Sundays challenge blog on Sunday, June 26th. So, hop on over to the next stop and good luck!
