ALOHA HAWAII ...

Morning All

First of all did I say that I would have lots of crafting time during the school summer holidays?  That was the plan but certainly not happening much yet...

Secondly I haven't had to hide in a darkened room since Monday following THE shopping spree!  I survived JUST; it was quite painless - not so much on the purse though where my son was concerned but on the plus side my daughter was pretty disappointed at what was on offer.  On the down side I had to take her to Liverpool on Wednesday to conclude the holiday shopping which was much more successful in her opinion.

We had a family outing in Liverpool for my Dad's birthday; he loved the Grandad card too.  He went for a cultural day at the Art gallery but my mum chose the shops and I think it's the first time in about 50 years that she's hunted out bikinis - brings back memories I guess of times gone by with a perfect figure!!!!

So it's my birthday today and my treat is to spend a day crafting if I can find my mojo.  The shopping can wait, the iron has been locked up, I'm being taken out for a meal this evening so no cooking required!  I may put the washer on if I can prise myself away from all that glitters and sparkles in my cupboard.

Anyway on to my cards - and I have 2 to post today.  The first one is for one of my American cousins who is moving to Hawaii next month with his young family.  What a fabulous holiday destination for the family - hope he's plenty of room but I think my crafty auntie will miss her gorgeous little granddaughter.
