Vintage Ladies Celebrating at the Beach - Blog Hop (Updated)

UPDATE - 3:20 PM Mountain Time:  There was some confusion between our gals and our coordinator and this was supposed to just be a post, not a hop so please ignore the hop part, but do check out the other ladies lovely creations!  Sorry for this mix up!

(Earlier Post)
Hi there Friends!  I have been so bad.  I didn't get my project done for our Blog Hop today over at Vintage Heartfelt Designs (VHD), but I did have some awesome inspiration hit me in the middle of the night.  If you just happened upon my blog please start at the beginning (link is above).  If you arrived from Carol at Cardstock, Scissors, and Glue you are in the right spot!  

As I mentioned, I did get some inspiration so I went to my craft room and picked out my main "focus" for my project and then decided to choose some items to go with it.  Well, I'm one of those people that has to sort through everything and it takes me forever to put together a project.  I'm a definite over-thinker.  I just can't help it!  I don't usually whip something together real fast.  I like to weigh all my options! :0)  Obviously, that leaves me with no time to complete my challenge today; however, I wanted to give you all a little "sneak peek" of what's to come!  I am including here a picture of my incomplete project with the hopes that you all will come back to see the finished project!  I thought that maybe the supplies I have chosen to use might entice you to see the end result.  Please tell me if I'm wrong. ;)

The theme for this Hop is Vintage Ladies on the Beach with the inclusion of either/or sand and shells.  I like to call it Vintage Beach Babes. ;)  I happen to have the perfect paper line by Graphic 45 called "Boardwalk" which couldn't be better for this theme.  How lucky is that?  Yet, I have been so ill that I still didn't get my project done even though the lovely Dee (Coordinator/Owner of VHD) gave me plenty of time to do so.  I apologize to my other teammates too for not being done in time.  I really do put a lot of pressure on myself to get things done by the deadline, but sometimes my body just will not let me!  As you all know, I fell down last week and as silly as that seems, it really, really hurt me!  I twisted my knee, my calf, my shoulders got jolted (they always hurt), have some very deep wounds on one knee and scraped up the other one mildly.  I look like a little kid who's been pushed down about 100 times on the playground! :p  Feel like it too! LOL When you have fibromyalgia every little thing like that is amplified so much.  :(

Anyways,  thank you all for stopping by today and please be sure to visit our DT blog for the other awesome creations by my fellow vintage teammates.  I'm sure they will be amazing!

 What will I be making?  It's a secret! ;0)  It will include some of these papers and stamps though.
 This is the Beach Babe I chose to use.  Doesn't she have the life?  
What's that you see?  Could it be?  Yes, I think there may be some Jillian Vance stamps in there.  We'll just have to see where my imagination will take me in the next day or so.  Oooh, this is fun!

Your next stop is the talented Debbie at Debbie's Craft Time

Thank you all for humoring me while I have my fun.  (It's 3:00 AM so if I seem loopy it's because... I am!) LOL

XO ~ Amy Jo
