Hula Kids

I love these pic of my darling daughter and son. These were taken just moments after they opened their presents from their father. He brought my daughter the outfit and my son the ukulele. I love how much Hula attitude my daughter has while dancing to a CD I received by IZ (songs in my play list). My son is always so serious lately when I take his pic... must be a phase.
Background paper:
I started with a paper from Memory Stor Used my light brown ink and light blue ink on top of the Tim Holtz mask. On the bottom I also used my distressed stickles walnut stain to create a lightly sandy bottom.
The Tree:
This was created out of textured brown paper. I cut a long curve with the tree base and then folded it every 1/2" or so to create the "layers" look up the trunk. The Palm leaves were created out of silk leaves from a Christmas poinsettia.
The Hibiscus:
This was created by enlarging a clip art image and cutting out each petal and distressed and stickled the petals. The center was created with a prima flower and a grouping of rub-ons. Then a yellow irridecent stickles ontop of that.
I used Stamping up buttons throughout and rub-ons. I used a verioity of ribbons and fibers on each photo. Of course the flower cluster is all Prima with stampin up brads. Thanks for reading and viewing this post. I hope you have a great day and please feel free to comment if you liked anything in this post.

  1. Oh this is such a pretty page. I love the photos too. It reminds me of when my kids were small. My son was always the one with the funny pose while my daughter was more serious. Enjoy this time while they are still young. My son goes off to Afghanistan soon and it seems like only a short time ago that he was this funny young kid.
