I'd Rather be at the Beach Blog Hop may 18th - 22nd Day 5

Welcome back to day 5 and the LAST day of the "I'd Rather Be At The Beach" Blog Hop. This blog hop runs from May 18-22. If you are coming from Elsa's Blog ~ you’re on the right track. If you just joined us, you can go back to the beginning HERE to and hop along with us. We’ve had so much fun these past four days on this hop, and we have a wonderful line up with some oh-so-talented crafters. You will find loads of projects with a Beach theme throughout this hop! If you love the beach as much as I do, then you won't want to miss this one! We have LOTS of blog candy to offer! Please check back daily for your chance to win!
For my final project I was inspired by Emily's profile pic, and thought wouldn't it be a wonderful thing to be able to decorate for a Beach Wedding.  So I made something I thought I would love to see at this type of wedding.  I hope you all enjoy it.

The flowers are handmade, one of my favorite to make.  Really easy to make.  I love all the white on white!  So there you have it!  This has really been a fun week of hopping!!!  So many wonderful projects.  I really hope you enjoyed every day of it.  Thank you so much for coming back day after day.  So as I mention throughout the hop, I do have blog candy, so if you have left a comment on each day and are a follower you will be entered into the drawing.  I do have to let you know this before hand, this giveaway is not sponsored, this is from my personal stash and is only open to US residents.  Also, this is very important.  I have been having a lot of problems with my winners not replying to my email notification regarding the winner.  I know!!! WHAT!!!???  But it is true.  I only  give the winner a week to reply, if no reply is sent, then I pick another winner.  No exceptions.  I also need to remind you to please leave me an email address, if not I will not go looking for you and will pick a different winner.  I hope you all will understand why, I have to put this out. 
Thank you so much for stopping by and for joining us all week long.  It's been fun!  I will pick a winner on the 25th of this month.  I will post it here, if you want to come back and check.  Thank you again, and have a great day!!!
