Under The Sea Blog Hop

Welcome to the Under the sea blog hop hosted by the oh so talented and ever gracious Ashley from  That is where the hop starts, so if you stumbled across my blog (thank you so much) you must swim back to Ashley's blog so you don't miss a single ray of sunshine (or bubbles)!!  If you got here by way of Lisa then you are floating in the right direction.

So who's ready?  I know after all the heat we've been having here in the Mid West this past week I know I sure am ready for a little dip in the ocean.

For my project I made a treasure box.  This little gem was only $1 from that fabulous where you can get anything for 4 quarters store!

 I then just painted it a pretty sea blue, added some glitter paper for a little sparkle, upcycled a broken shell bracelet I had gotten probably from a Florida trip and voila!

I hope you feel a little cooler after your dip in the ocean!  Make sure you continue on this refreshing journey by visiting Nancie next!

Here's the complete line up in case you find yourself swimming in circles:

 Thanks for stopping by and happy scrappin'!!
