Blog Candy!

Hi everyone! I'm giving away some blog candy, but not on this blog. Hmm, I know you're wondering what could it be?!? If you're interested, you can check it out here. I hope you're curious enough to hop on over and take a look! Here's a hint: It has something to do with this guy ...

Hope to see you over there! I can't believe the week is finally over! I have some fun things planned this weekend and I can't wait to share them with you! Happy Aloha Friday!

TGF CHA Relay, Day 3

I'm half way there! I can't believe I'm still in the relay! This super cute digi image we played with today is called Toby Cub. Isn't he the sweetest thing?!? I say "he" because that's what my first impression was of Toby. I suppose that the name Toby could also be for a girl though, huh? By now you've all had a peak at Thursday's Digi, Prince Ian. I'm not too sure what kind of layout I'm doing for him yet, so I better put my thinking cap on and start sketching!

Thanks for stopping by and leaving such wonderfully encouraging comments! Until next time, take care!

TGF CHA Relay, Day 2

Here's the card I submitted for Day 2 of TGF CHA Relay. Yesterday's image was Mer(man) Ian, and today's image is Wild Sprout Charlotte. She sure looks like she has a lot of spunk in her, huh? My original idea was to make her into a 60s flower-power girl. But that's not what she turned out to be. I think she could be one of the Pink Ladies from the movie "Grease". Don't you? The stamped sentiment is from my GF Liann and I just LOVE it! This card is perfect for a friend of mine ... can you guess who?

Thanks for stopping by and for leaving all your sweet comments! I appreciate you!

I can't believe I did it! Took me a while, but I managed to get a little mojo going (thanks Kris!) and created this card for TGF CHA Relay. If you haven't heard about this contest, you can check it out here. At first I was gonna make Mer Ian blue or green, but then I figured that most of the other cards would be using those colors. I figured I'd be different and use my favorite color. I'm pretty happy with the way this card turned out, and think that it can even be used as an unconventional Valentine's card. What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Nothing crafty - just an update

Quick post ... just wanted to thank all of you for your thoughts and prayers for my Dad. He had his surgery tonight and so far so good! He'll be in the hospital at least until Saturday, but we're hoping and praying for his complete and speedy recovery. Thank you all for your support during the last month! Aloha, Linda

Thanks for the RAKs, Part 3

Happy Saturday everyone! I'm so sorry that I flaked out again, and was MIA. A lot has been going on with me. A few of my close friends know what's been going on, and now that things are stable, I can share it with all of you. We almost lost my dad at the beginning of December, but he's doing a lot better now and is on the road to recovery. I've been sick since this past Tuesday, I guess as a result of finally "relaxing". AND because I have Menier's Disease, my vertigo has been acting up again. Thanks for staying with me and being such loyal followers! I really appreciate you! Now, on to Part 3 of my RAKs ...

This beautiful RAK is from Liann of Creating with Aloha. She made this double pocket bag and used this super cute digi image to decorate it! You did a great coloring job Liann! Check out the awesome tag she made, and all the goodies she loaded into my bag! AND, I love that stamp! Thanks Liann! If you haven't been to Liann's blog, yet, go check her out!

This gorgeous RAK is from 1luvnmama. Thank you so much Girl! If you haven't checked out Mama's blog yet, what are you waiting for? She does amazing work and I have been blessed to receive one of her fab creations! When are we gonna get together, Mama?

This next awesome RAK is from my DF Shirley, of Stampin for the Fun of It. Shirley is another local blogger who does some amazing work. Head on over to her blog if you haven't yet done so! I love the bling and the gorgeous notebook you sent! I used this notebook to take notes at my dad's doctors visits and it always brought a smile to my face when I closed the cover. Thanks so much Shirley!

This fabulously sweet RAK is from my special GF Kris, of K-Lusive Kreations. She sent me a whole bunch of Christmas goodies, and this beautiful card!

Check out the personalized notepad above ... she stamped every page w/my name! How awesome is that?!? Thanks Girl! Finally, check out this beautiful thank you card Kris made for me. Her copic coloring skills are off the hook! Like all the wonderfully creative ladies above, Kris is a fantastic card maker and paper crafter. I'm sure you all have visited her blog, but in case you haven't, GO NOW!

Well, friends, thanks for visiting and for all your sweet comments. I'm very grateful that you all have stayed with me during my absences. Until next time, take care of yourselves and be safe. Aloha ...

Thanks for the RAKs, Part 1

Hey everybody! Hope you are all enjoying your weekend thus far! I'd like to take this time to thank all the ladies who so graciously sent me holiday RAKs. I'll be sharing them in the next couple of posts, so I hope you'll stay with me and enjoy the RAKs as much as I did!

Before I start sharing, I wanted to show this card I made for a swap at Teri's holiday party in early December. I still had "creators" block from the craft fair, and this was the only thing I could come up with. I wish I could have made it cuter.

This totally stuffed box is from Joy and Tae! Thank you so much you guys!

This next RAK is from Michelle and Amara! Thanks for your thoughtfulness! And look at the precious card Amara made for me!

Thanks again girls! I really love my gifts! Stay tuned for Part 2 ...

Just wanted to say ...

Happy New Year everyone! Hope you all had a very safe and happy celebration with all your family and friends! I can't believe it's 2010 ... where did 2009 go??? Anyhow, this is a really short post tonight. Nothing crafty to share, but I had a question for all my local blogging/crafting sisters out there: Are any of you going to the live taping of "The Joy of Crafting" show this Saturday at Ben Franklin Mapunapuna? If so, leave me a comment to let me know, and maybe I'll see you there!

In the meantime, my obsession with TWILIGHT has started up again, and I am finally over my "crush" on Jacob. I'm definitely TEAM EDWARD!!! To quench my "thirst", I'm going to see New Moon again this week. OME, I can't wait ... until then, let's enjoy this beautiful photo of Edward ...

As my BFF would say, "OH EDDIE!" Hahahaha! I've got a bunch of RAKs to share before I post any of my creations and I want to say thank you to all of you who have stayed with me during my "absence". Until next time, take care of yourselves and be safe out there! Aloha ...
