So much for zooming through layouts, huh? I guess that is what happens when you go to Vegas for a couple days and come home having won.......A COLD!

Here is another one from our Christmas vacation in Hawaii. wouldn't that be a nice place to recuperate from a cold? yeah, well, one can dream! needless to say, this is our arrival in the airport in Hawaii. my dad was there to great us all with traditional leies.......seeds for the man, flowers for the woman.....and well, macadamia nuts for the boys! lol!

this layout is based on today's newly posted sketch #208 over at Sketch Inspiration. I think it took me all of four hours after seeing the sketch to have this done. and during that time I also put away a bunch of scrap supplies I purchased yesterday, picked out photos and sketches for 3 layouts, and took a shower. aren't you impressed? HA!

Products used:

Basic Grey papers and alphabet stickers
HS rhinestone and ghost hearts (the ghost one is under the "a" in aloha)
Gin-X rub-ons (don't you miss them???)
misc brown pen and ink

Beware of Attack Gecko

Can you believe this is my 8th layout of 2011?? (not including the last layout where I did the 2nd page of a previously completed layout) Not bad considering my "goal" was 1 layout a week. I am really enjoying getting back into scrapbooking and using all those supplies I have been gathering. Even better, I am getting a tad bit closer to current in my albums......okay, well December 2006 isn't very close but it feels nice to see that stack of Hawaiian Christmas vacation photos.

This layout is based on another wonderful sketch from the Sketch Inspiration Volume 1. it was designed for 2 photos and a title, but I figured that the top photo said it all! lol!!

Products used:

Basic Grey paper and flower
American Craft felt flowers
Lasting Impressions buttons
Queen & Co micro brads
