blue hawaii



i was reading a little short story that had to do with hawaii yesterday ... and i was reminiscing. it made me miss that place. i went to hawaii about 11 years ago (i think that's how long it's been) and i fell in love with it. i swore that i would go to college over there! lol...not planning to do that anymore, but i so really do want to go there for vacation again (and explore a bit more).

see, i was a beach girl even back then...and i fell in love with the crystal-clear blue water (and snorkeling with some awesome marine life at hanauma bay). i loved the lushness in the atmosphere. loved the aloha spirit. loved the mahi mahi and even the poi.

so i dug out some old pictures (i swore i had more pictures than i ended up finding)...and did this 2-pager. they're quite frustrating....but you get this sense of satisfaction after you finish one. lol.

go challenge yourself with the new HMITM challenge it's a toughie but a really GOOD one. in fact, i would go get started right now if it weren't for my mojo deficiencies (it flew away after the above LO). lol.

You inspire me!
I went to Hawaii 13 yrs ago and we swore we'd go back in no later than 10 yrs, maybe even 5. Hasn't happened yet. Just too long of a trip to devote the time it needs. But, I've only scrapped a single layout from that trip and that was only bc I was given Hawaiian papers for a DT project. I think it's time to play with those photos! Thanks Caro!

Your mojo gone??? No way, I can't believe it! You always do such awesome work! I just bet your brain is kicking around something great right now (even if it hasn't taken the time to inform the rest of you, yet)!
