NATIONAL PICNIC DAY BLOG HOP !

 HAPPY SATURDAY EVERYONE 
and welcome to our...
NATIONAL PICNIC DAY BLOG HOP! 

 Today's Blog Hop is all about picnics ! 
My favorite picnics are on the beach! I love being surrounded with good food, family and friends by the ocean! And isn't it weird how food always tastes better outdoors ?!
So let's celebrate this great outdoor past time with some craftin'!

If you've arrived here then you must have just visited 
Melanie at Scrappy Mel's!

 Now it's my turn to share my take on probably the most popular picnic snack ever ! Watermelon ! And of course no picnic would be complete without those little surprise guests, bugs ! But aren't these little guys cute enough to squeeze! Ok now...
I said squeeze, not squish ! LOL !
 I decided to challenge myself and ONLY use patterned paper in this design. Do you like it? I'm really happy with how it came out :)
The watermelon is from The Preserves cart and the stamp and sentiment are from Stampin UP. Papers from various sources.

Now for the BLOG CANDY !
I am giving away this adorable "Amusing Animals Stamp Set" from Scrappy Moms that I know you will love !
 All you have to do is leave a comment on this post, become a follower of my blog and leave me a way to get a hold of you. 
I'll announce the  Random.org winner on 
Monday afternoon July 12th.
Thank you SO MUCH for hopping along with us 
and stopping by my blog !
Good Luck !
Your next stop is Michelle over at Scrappin with my Bug ! I know you'll just love it there too !

If by any chance you get lost, below are the links
to the rest of our featured bloggers ! And remember our host
Sarah at The Pink Cricut! has an awesome GRAND PRIZE TO GIVE AWAY sponsored by Memory Miser , so make sure you end up at Sarah's blog when you are done hopping ! 
 HAVE FUN AND HAPPY HOPPING !
