Stampin’ Up Grand Vacation Blog Hop

Stampin' Up Grand Vacation Hawaii Blog Hop -
Welcome to the BEST blog hop ever!!!  If you’re playing along with our Hop, I know you enjoyed the fabulous project created by the UBER talented, Dena Rekow!  I just love that girl!

I am so excited to be a part of the Stampin’ Up Grand Vacation Achievers Blog Hop!  I am so blessed to work for a company like Stampin’ Up and let me tell you, any job that sends Mr. Awesome & I on a fabulous vacation is a company worth working for!

Our theme for the Blog Hop is, of course, Hawaiian…what else?!  I had such a fab time creating this coconut beverage card.  It’s created with the Circle Card Thinlit (page 228 of the catalog).  I used the 2 ½” circle punch to make the coconut and the Woodgrain embossing folder really gave it the texture it needed.

The “Let’s Celebrate” came from the Sumthin’ Sumthin’ stamp set and it says it all.  I am so ready to celebrate with other Stampin’ Up Grand Vacation achievers!!!
