Aloha! 13

Aloha Cyber Girl Friends!

I had some "down time" last night to play with my scrappin' goodies that I hauled from Phoenix to Maui. I wanted to make my sister, Tina another Thank You card for taking care of our home & my babies. While she stays at our house, she also checks the mail daily. Just to give you an idea, I have to carry a large bag with me to check the mail because my hubbie gets all sorts of journals & magazines, besides the daily junk :) While I am away, I send Tina a few cards to my home addressed to HER Attention. She gets a kick out of receiving mail, especially while staying at my house :) Please take notice of the "make shift" hotel light tent! My hubbie had this great idea this morning to make our own light tent! :) Try to picture this: a small coffee table, draped with a pillow case,a vase used as our decoration on top, propped in back of the drapes (window side), being held in position by me, with my DH sitting on the floor, photographing these pictures! Do you have a really funny visual? It was a hoot! (giggles) Well, that is how these pictures came to be! :) My sketch inspiration came from CPS122 & the vintagy-distressed flower was inspired by Dawn McVey. Thanks for looking at my creations. Please feel free to leave a comment! I really enjoy hearing from you! :) Be Sweet! Until next time...

Ingredients used:

Paper: SU Mellow Moss, Very Vanilla, K&Company DP

Ink: SU Chocolate Chip

Stamps: SU Carte Postale, Warmest Regards

Sprinkles: We R Memory Keepers hardware, Offray ribbon, Making Memories brad, SU distressing tool
