If you get a chance, visit both of these sites for more inspiration :) Thanks for looking! `Olu`olu (Please) feel free to leave a comment! I really enjoy hearing from you! :) Be Sweet! Until next time...

Beautiful cards. Have you found any scrapbook stores over there on the island? It would be fun to see what kinds of stuff they have.

Hi Girls! I hope you all having a great weekend. My vacation is flying by soooo fast. Thanks for stopping by & leaving some love :) Shana, I e-mailed my cyber girlfriend, HawaiiRenee, asking for a scrapbook store referral & she said there isn't any scrapbooking stores here on Maui :( She relies on the internet & Honolulu! Hugs, Mona

Hello Girlfriends :) Thanks so much for leaving me nice words! They mean so much. This will make you chuckle-I brought along my 8yr old Sizzix Sidekick (perfect for traveling), while I was trying to crank a Spellbinders die through, I jammed it & broke the darn thing :( I have purchased several models since, but I am going to have to replace that with a 50% off coupon purchase :) It makes for a great travel scrappin' companion :) Hugs, Mona

Sierra said...

Sorry to hear about your Sidekick! Sounds like you've gotten a lot of use out of it! Also, these cards are very pretty as usual! I would die to have your eye for design and creativity! Isn't there some potion I can drink or something? Help!!!!

Lucy said...
