Spring Break Destination

The new challenge at Our Creative Corner is make a paper crafted item depicting our Spring Break Destination or as in my case...... a 'wishing' I was there' destination.  Come travel with me to paradise and enjoy the moon glow on the beautiful blue water. Are you ready....off we go!




The stamps on the main image are all from Stampscapes and were stamped on glossy cardstock. This image was colored with various Marvy dye inks that were applied with Cut 'n Dry.  The 'Aloha' stamp and the hibiscus stamp (on the background) are from 'Island Paperie', a scrapbooking store on Maui. These stamps were actually 'made in Hawaii' so these qualified as souvenirs from a recent trip to this beautiful destination.  The glass with a 'Blue Hawaiian' drink and the hibiscus in the top right corner are from Recollections.

Wishing I was there.

A warm welcome to Beckie and Mary, my newest followers.

Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.

Hello Marie
You have recalled wonderful memories for me when I saw your postcard,I went to 'Island Paperie' when we had two weeks Holiday on MAUI, and Hubby sat in the Man chair! A perfect representation of the Island, I feel warm and relaxed just looking at your creation, the flowers and the cocktails, Mmmmm aloha.
