Memorial Day at Ala Moana Beach

Highlights from tonight's 10th Annual Lantern Floating Hawaii at Ala Moana Beach at Magic Island.

The Lantern Floating Ceremony is held to remember our ancestors and all the souls who have passed on to the next realm. The warm glow of the lanterns set afloat from the shores of Ala Moana Beach represents the light of happiness and tranquility, free from distress and fear.

Card Project #5: Mother's Day Card's been awhile since I posted here, I've been pretty busy with alot of things in my life. Anyway, Mother's Day is just around the corner and I had to make a card for my mom, I created this card this morning around one in the morning after finishing up 4 other Blippie Purses for my mom, two sisters and niece. I needed to make something fast and simple, that's when I saw this video tutorial at The Hero Club Blog. It took me about over an hour to make and a huge mess in my was getting so late, I needed to go to bed.

The "Mom", scalloped circles, ring and flowers were designed in Illustrator and cut using my Craft Robo. Putting the card together was the easy part, it was the designing/cutting that took a long time to do.

Anyway, I finished it and as soon as I got up, I took photos of my creations and than packaged them up.

Until next time...
