We {heart} Hawaii! - MDSM81

I saw this cute sketch on MDS Monday and wanted to play with it.  There are so many people, places and things "I Love" that it was very hard to narrow it down to just one! LOL!  Maybe when I get caught up with my photobooks I can create another one dedicated to "Things I Love".  What a great concept!  Thanks for the inspiration MDS Monday!

You may view the challenge here (as well as all the pages created with this sketch here:

In creating my page, I chose our love of Hawaii!  We fell in love with the beauty of the islands on our honeymoon trip.  We try and go every year to explore different parts of each island, so every trip is different and memorable.  We go in October to celebrate our wedding anniversary.

Thanks for taking a peek!

Supplies Used:
Background - Summer Sun
Punch - Square (filled w/Paradise Found DSP #6, Textured Cardstock - Early Espresso, Early Espresso and Whisper White)
Stamp Brush Sets - Enjoy Every Moment (dotted circle - Whisper White); Paradise Found (leaf - Whisper White); Love Story (heart - Whisper White)
Embellishments - Paradise Found (flowers - recolored Summer Sun or Early Espresso)
Font - Market (Whisper White and Summer Sun)

    1. Thanks Tami! I do admit, that it took me several moments of switching out paper/colors to get the color combo you see here (the beauty of digital scrapbooking.... an endless supply of products and nothing is ruined if you decide you want to change the color!lol!).

  3. Beautiful page; you do so amazingly well using sketches for guidance; I am impressed. Love how you changed out the banners, made the page your own and yet still followed the sketch. Just beautiful, all of it; thanks for sharing!

  8. Hi Anita! Yes...they are unconventional colors for Hawaii, and I changed papers so many times before I could get the right fit for the photos (So happy that you can do this easily with digital!). Thanks so much for your wonderful comments!
