Happy Saturday! I had a lot of fun with my kids this week, who were off for February Vacation Week. We had some fun adventures (including a morning at the arcade on Thursday and a trip to Build-A-Bear Workshop yesterday to redeem their coupons for a free bear accessory) and had a fabulous time perfecting our recipe for fruit and yogurt smoothies. Delicious!
I was having some serious mojo issues last weekend and at the beginning of the week, but by the end of the week I was getting ideas for creations left and right! Now my problem is finding time to make cards for all of the ideas I have. Yikes! Not enough time! Regardless, I was excited to check out yesterday's Free for All challenge on SCS. The theme was Aloha Friday, to make anything tropical, Polynesian, Asian … in a tribute to all of our island friends.
This had me stumped at first, but not for long. I remembered that not long ago I bought some great Jillibean Soup DP with images of paper lanterns. Lightbulb! I cut out three lanterns from the pattern and strung them on some razzleberry-esque baker's twine. A "May your day be Fabulous!" sentiment was a perfect match for these fabulous lanterns. And then I remembered that I have a few little Asian coins from an old collection of scrapbook embellishments. Voila!! Done. :)
I took my colors from this week's ColourQ Challenge #73: pear pizzazz, brocade blue, brilliant blue, razzleberry, and white. Aren't they pretty?
Well, thanks for tuning in for this little slice of bliss. I'll see around again soon!
