ALOHA!

well it's been awhile since i've posted an LO, huh?  (for all you newbies to scrapbooking, LO = layout).  actually it's been awhile since i've actually done one all together.  i didn't get a chance to do one this past weekend.  for one...i was not feeling too great and another i think i just needed to take a lil break and just get some creative mojo inspo by surfin blogs of some of my fave scrappy gals.  i have been addicted to amy tangerine's blog lately.  i really love how she puts her pages together.  they're so carefree and she always seems to make sure she adds lil memorabilia to them, which i totally miss doing.  i have truly learned from her that as long as you record the memory down as you like it and add a few embellies and your own touch, then every page will be your fave page.  she also does these lil mini albums which i am thinking of doing also. i was also inspired by her by getting back into writing and scrapping in my gratitude journal i had made over a year ago:
i'll try to post a few of the pages i've done in this journal soon.

today.....i did get a chance to create an LO.  i have been putting off doing our hawaii honeymoon album for too long.  i've committed to at least scrapping my fave photos before we move to cali.  hoping to have it finished by then.  here's the one i did today:
i used the Inspired Blueprints sketch #48 for this one.  we got a gift certificate from auntie linda to the Top of Waikiki resto, "The revolving restaurant with a view," literally.  we made reservations at 5 p.m., had an appetizer, our meal with coffee. omigooness!  it was yumm-o! you gotta eat there!

here a few of the little tidbitz:

here's one i did about 2 weekends ago, another one for the Hawaii Honeymoon album.  i cut up one of the menus from KoKo Cafe and added it my LO. love adding memorabilia to my pages now.
loving stamps nowadays, especially butterflies.  i created a visual triangle using them on this LO.

i highly recommend brunch at the KoKo Cafe if you are ever around that area.  yumm-o! we had eaten at another brunch place but it was nothing compared to this one.  i think we ate here about twice, or was it 3 times? anyhoo... you gotta eat there too!

i miss Hawaii....aaaahhhh.

Just stopping by from Inspired Blueprints! All of your Hawaii layouts make me want to go back! Especially to that brunch place. I love good food on vacation.
