Little Beach Houses

Well it's been over a year since I posted!  How'd that happen?  My mom got sick number one and I spent a good bit of last spring and summer in SC with her.  She survived but it has been a long road!  My twins were in their final year of college so I tried to see their sporting events as much as possible.  My oldest son joined the Navy.  Life just keeps moving forward and I try to keep up!! 😅  Enough of that!  Today my post is all about a blog hop with Papertrey Ink.

This is the inspirational photo!
I decided to make some little beach houses!  I'm going to the beach next week with my family and extended family and I thought I would make these for the girls and put some lip balm, hair ties, little hand sanitizers and chocolate in them!  It all fit! 

These little houses were made with Betsy Veldman's Tiny Town houses.  The roof was die cut out from the new Tiny Town Sweet Shoppe.  Betsy had made a beach house on her blog and I took her idea and made them my own.   I think the girls will love these.

I added tags to the houses with the new PTI's Some Like It Hot stamp set.

I hope you like these little beach houses.  Thanks to PTI and Betsy for the idea!!
