Hawaiian Themed Blog Hop, Day 2

Aloha, Aloha -- It's Day #2 of the  Hawaii-Themed Blog Hop, sponsored by the fantabulous Nicolette of Beyond Scrappin'.  If you've come from Shannon's adorable Purple Lion Paper blog, you're on the right track.  If you've happened upon here and want to start at the beginning, please do go to Nicolette's blog, and hang loose!

Here is the fun layout I created for today's post:



This cute little boogie-boarder is none other than my granddaughter, Charlotte, enjoying her first summer! The way this little duck has taken to water, you'd think she was born in the summer, but noooooo.... she's December-born. 

For this layout, I used Rusted Sun papers from Fancy Pants Designs, along with their matching Glitter Cuts. A few buttons on stickers marked "Sunglasses" and "Flip Flops", three floral brads, and this layout was done... Easy-peasy!

Cute layout of your granddaughter. My daughter learned to swim when she was very young and is like a fish. She is now a sophomore in college studying Art Animation. We moved here into her 1st apt (she stayed in dorm required 1st yr) last wk.
