I had fun doing my page this week for MDS Monday! The theme was to follow the sketch (below) and make it PLAYFUL and COLORFUL! Well, if you know anything about me, you know I love color! I am not one that wears dull clothes .... or if I do have on black, I usually have a pop of color somewhere! I like bright colors and my wardrobe and my cards are a testament to this!
I decided that the pictures that would look the best with the challenge would be my Hawaii pictures. I visited Hawaii in 2005 (I think) and 2008 with Ashley. Well, finding those pictures turned out to be a challenge since back then, I printed most of my pictures from my camera. But, I forgot I had saved them on Shutterfly so I was able to access them. If you have never been to Hawaii, you have missed a beautiful place. The flowers there are the most gorgeous I have seen.
This page was so easy to do. I used a pre-made template and just dropped the pictures in. The background is from the download kit called Paradise Found and I just recolored it to Turquoise. With all the beautiful pictures on the page, I didn't think embellishments were really needed. I added the flower behind the text and the Hawaiian girl (from the same kit). The title (Hawaii) is actually a punch called Smitten Alphabet that I love. I use it a lot.
Here are a few pictures from the trips.
