2 days and counting!

Yesterday was a big day for our family, my daughter passed her driving exam!  One of the big milestones of growing up.  She has been a little stressed about this, sharing that she had several bad dreams about driving off a cliff!  I think a celebration is definitely called for!

I am posting a few pictures today of a mini album that was inspired by Shari Carroll (Hero Arts).  It was a lot of fun to put together.  I plan on giving it to family that will be visiting this fall.   I used so many different supplies for this project, I don't even know where to start.   The front cover is stamped with a Hero Arts stamp using white Stazon.   The aloha stamp is made by a local company, Taj.  The flowers are from All Natural Accents and I think the ribbon is May Arts.


The second picture has a stamped image taped to the page with Heidi Swapp tape I got long ago (an example of the collecting thing).  I colored the image with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol.  The background is chalked. The Pokadot background was clear ebossed and colored with Distress Ink.  The steamp is from Stampin' Up.   The ribbon here is from American Crafts.

The last picture shows a page made with a shipping label.  The flap is stamped (again, not sure who made it).  The little card inserts are stamped using the Hero Arts Clings, Ledger.

Only 3 more days of my staycation.  Hope to get out and paddle again today. Before I go, I want to wish one of my dearest friends Happy Birthday!  We have known each other since Kindergarten,   Not saying how long that has been, but it has been awhile.

Wishing you a happy Aloha Friday!
