            Well, my first project today is a Thank You card with the Luau theme.  As you can see, I really love the stickles, my cricut, the color pink, the Hawaiian Flower(Think Cricut refers to it as Plumeria) and the "Beach Baby" paper from Fancy Pants.  I also used Peony Cat eye to ink around the card and flowers.  I used Life's A Beach for the Flower and Leaf.  I found a tiny
  spool of Fuchusia Ribbon at Hobby Lobby.


 My second project is this cute little Frame.   Again, I used the shiny fuchusia ribbon from Hobby Lobby.  I painted the wooden frame fuchusia, and then decoupaged the bright colorful paper on to it.  Again, I used my cricut and Life's A Beach to cut out the flowers and the Hula Girl.  The numbers and letters were from a Mylar balloon so I dressed them up by using stickles around them.

Yes, Kit Kat didn't like the lei. Seriously, I don't get why she didn't. LOL Wait until tomorrow as she will have a full outfit. LOL
I don't understand why, and had a very hard time getting her to even look at the camera! LOL Thanks for stopping by and enjoying the hop! Looking forward to another day of beautiful creations! Rexann, I can't wait to see the stickles holder! I will be watching for it!
