Rosebuds 15

Aloha Girl Friends! How come time does not fly by when I am at work, like it does when I am on vacation? :( Hmmmm Maholo nui loa, (Thank you very much), for coming on vacation with me to Maui (sort of). I wanted to share with you all the view from our hotel and a few photos of the view from the summit area looking into the crater of Haleakala Volcano on Maui, Hawaii. I hope you can enjoy them.

On to papercrafting ... after a strenuous day of sitting on a lounge chair and sipping "lava flows", I made this card :) The sketch was inspired by this week's Splitcoast Sketch Challenge #235, (SC235). If you have a chance to browse the gallery, you will find some very inspirational creations! I loooove making Dawn McVey's distressed flower & with limited supplies on hand, I decided to make all these little rosebuds for my card! All you need is some paper & your fingers :) Can't beat that! I hope you like it!

Thanks for looking! `Olu`olu (Please) feel free to leave a comment! I really enjoy hearing from you! :) Be Sweet! Until next time...
