Mele Kalikimaka

Happy Thursday everyone! I have a LO I created for you using the new sketch at Sketches In Thyme!
One of my New Years Resolutions is to finish up some projects in my scrap room before starting any new ones! These pictures are of Lauren when we were in Hawaii in December of '07!! Boy, I am sooo behind! This trip was so much fun because it was Lauren's first trip to Maui and she was the only child we took with us! (The older 3 had been there before and were involved in winter sports that they couldn't leave for.) Lauren loved all the attention she got from Greg and I and this was the start of her posing stage... ykwim? Everytime I had the camera out, she was striking a pose! And even if I didn't have it out, she would strike a pose and insist I get it out!! I have SOOOO many photos of her from this trip!

Here is this week's sketch. It comes from Sketchabilities and was super easy to work with!
 I think part of the reason I didn't scrap these photos sooner was because I was having a hard time combining the Christmas theme with the Hawaiian theme. But, while I was putting away some of my Christmas papers, I found these and thought the pink in them were perfect for these photos! It brings out the pink in Lauren's dress! And I remembered this darling little song they kept playing while we were there which became the title of the LO! It means Merry Christmas in Hawaii!

Supplies Used:
Papers and most embellies: SEI
Red Flowers, gem brads and letters: Making Memories
Punches: Martha Stewart
Cricut: Ashlyn's Alphabet
Glossy Accents
