Rock A Hula

Hi there and welcome to Nonna's Craft Corner!
How's your week going so far?  I'm still trying to recover from our week of VBS and attempting to get my house back in order after a week with the grands.  Cleaning house sure puts a crimp in my crafting time!

I don't know about your neck of the woods, but we have been having summer-like temps for what seems like a very, very long time here in Southeast Alabama.  It's hot, humid, muggy and steamy around here these days and there seems to be no relief in sight.  So....I think I'm just gonna get a cold drink, crank up some Jimmy Buffett, close my eyes and pretend to be on secluded tropical island somewhere enjoying the sea breezes and maybe...just maybe...doing a little Rock a Hula.....

Can't you just smell that clean, fresh ocean breeze?

* I created the Candy Tube Holder with a cutting file from SVG Cutting Files. (I extended the back on mine).
* My adorable little Hula girl is from the New Peachy Keen Stamps stamp set Rock a Hula (PK-1254).  Isn't she just cute as can be?

* I colored my little Island Cutie with my Copic markers.
* The sand is created with Kraft paper and lots of glitter.
* The starfish is from the PKS June Stamp Set (PKSC-18)

* The tops of the palm trees are from the Silhouette Online Store.  I added some dark brown pearls to the center of each tree for coconuts!  Then I used my hot glue gun to glue the tree tops to my candy tubes - ta da....instant palm trees!

Ok, I guess I have to head back downstairs and finish cleaning this house.  But, in my mind, I'll still be doing the Hula with a cool drink in one hand and Jimmy Buffett singing in my ear!  Have a great island day everyone!

Until next time,
