Hula Girl

I had a lot of fun making this little Hula Dancer from a 3D dress box from Creative Cuts and More! I think it would be cute for a Hawaiian Lua as party favors. This box opens up to hold little trinkets or candy. It could also be weighted down with sand and used as a balloon weight.

The supplies used for this are:

Creative Cuts and More Dress Box in Almond Creme Smooth Cardstock found Here
Kaiser Rhinestone: Here
Paper : Anna Griffin for bikini top
Skirt: cut up table skirt from a party
The lei was made cutting little bits of flower and threading them on a needle and thread, and secured with Killer Red Tacky Tape also found at Creative Cuts and More ( This tape is my new favorite product and you do not get a better deal then at Creative Cuts!!! )
Flowers from my stash
Thanks for looking!

I am No Ed Hardy!!

Amanda turned 19 on Monday, and one of her presents was a Ed Hardy Perfume set. I did my best to try and make a matching card, it turned out pretty good, its cuter and more blingy in person!

A Gift Today!

My family and I have adopted a few soldiers, we actually help send letters and care packages to 18 right now. It is a rewarding experience, and we have become friends with many of them already. Its so exciting to wake up in the morning and have emails from them from Iraq and Afganistan. It makes me so sad that some of them have no contact from home, and we are the only people writing them.. Anyway today I got the mail and Judy, a soldier stationed in Iraq sent me this beautiful handmade bowl from a market in Iraq. I was so blown away. Its beautiful in person. The hand painting in the middle is breathtaking up close.
