A Card and A LO

Aloha Mai,
I had a wonderful weekend, but I'll have to talk about that later, because the photos aren't uploaded yet and you just HAVE to see the pictures!!  

For now, I wanted to show you a card that I created for a challenge at Cardvaarks.  I used items from the March kit at Secret Scrapper, with a few of my own additions.  

I created in response to a challenge on the Rusty Pickle blog.   I used Rusty Pickle paper, chipboard and stamps to capture my favorite memory of being at the Puyallup Fair with my DS. The hearts in the upper right form a pocket for 4 journaling tags that read: 

"Every year for my birthday, you and I go to the fair.  "Doing the Puyallup" with you is a special time for me.  I will always cherish our time together.  I am so blessed with you!"

"We love the modern living or "gadgets" as we call them.  It's so wonderul to share time with you, doing things we both love.  I love looking at the trains and the lego exhibits with you too.  Thank you for keeping me company."

" I love how you LOVE to eat.  You  can eat anything and everything!  What a wonderful eater you are.  I especially love all the food you get all over yourself.  So unselfconscious.

"As you grow up I miss the special times we had together.  I miss your unquestioning love, innocence, delight and spontaneity.  But there are new gifts and I cherish those too.  I am grateful for my memories and hopeful of the future."

Thank you for looking.  I will get those pictures of this weekend up ASAP! 
A hui hou!
