You had me at Aloha!

I finally blogged - well yay me.

There is something about sitting down for more than 5 minutes (yes, I know) and writing up a blog post that has me stymied.  I can sit here for hours on Pinterest or Facebook or scouring through various stamp company sites - but BLOG?  Honestly blechhh...…..

However…..I really do like to do The Color Throwdown and this week - the colours were so pretty I couldn't not resist…so it is only fair to show you all my pretty production!…...and since I needed a starting point,  I combined it with this month's Sketch For You To Try from Reverse Confetti!

I brought out my Pineapples Aplenty stamp set and Confetti Cuts from Reverse Confetti and stamped away - using the unusual colour combo for my pineapples.

I stamped two of the pineapples with Dark Chocolate ink - and my MISTI (eeks!)…then I die cut them - look how even those pineapples are!!  The Confetti Cuts make it too easy - I even impress myself haha

The little flags at the top are die cut using the Stitched Flag Trio Confetti Cuts…I used a piece of the Quick Card Panels sheets for one of the flags and I just happened to have a piece yellow watercolored paper to use for the other flag.

I also used the Circle Garland Confetti Cuts for a bit more colour behind the pineapples……The little waves are from Doin' The Wave Confetti Cuts and I cut them with Dark Chocolate and Kraft card stock.

There is also a little square of pin dotted vellum behind the pineapples which - in real life- looks quite fine!

Thanks for visiting today and listening to my blog whining :)
