Kauai :)

Lots of challenges inspired this layout {other than my determination to finally tackle my Hawaii album once and for all}... First off, this super cute sketch from Sketchy Thursdays, posted today! 


Here's the layout I made!


As part of the Scrappy Mom Stamps "Life's A Beach" challenge, I used that cartridge to cut my favorite Hibiscus flower out at 3 1/2". I popped up the flower part and doodled with a white gel pen. Since I made this paper piecing, I'm linking up to Lasting Memories' challenge too!


I also cut the title out from the same cartridge, at 1 1/4". I wish this cart had a shadow feature though! ;)


For Amanda's "Get Scrappy" challenge, you needed to make a layout using your cricut AND use a stamp. I just had to add my favorite sentiment from my new Scrappy Mom's summer set - "Mahalo" which is "thank you" in Hawaiian.


Thanks for stopping by today! It feels good to make layouts again (after several card posts).

I will say it again Suzanne, this layout turned out great. Some day I will make it there, but 17 hours is a long time to get some where, but worth it in the end.
