Feeling the Tropics!

I love this Island Oasis paper. It has a bunch of great colors and patterns.

I have been wanting to make a paper bow for ages and downloaded the tutorial from Splitcoast a long time ago, but never got around to trying it. My sister's SU! group got together this month and their project was making a paper bow, thanks to Jen Phillips. Since I live 3 hours away, I don't get to attend. But, I love seeing what they've done via Debbie's blog and talking to her about the meeting. It sounds like they had some kind of fun :)

They inspired me to break out my instructions and get to work. While looking through my instruction sheets, I found the one for the man's shirt. I've made a card with this before - but it was before I started blogging. I'll have to take a picture and post it later. Anyway, I've been wanting to do some Hawaiian shirts and I'm going to make flower leis for them later.

My husband and I will be celebrating our 15 year anniversary in Maui next month. These projects are helping me get ready (I'm already there in my mind!) Won't this bow be cute on a gift I bring back for friends and family?

OK, I've rambled long enough - have a great weekend everyone!
