The Aloha DT Blog Hop

Hello everyone and welcome to the Aloha Blog Hop over at Michelle Perkett Studio. I hope you started at the beginning if not you can head back to it above.If you came here from Jasmine then your on the right track.


This is a double celebration weekend for me. We as members of Michelle Perketts group over at PCP are celebrating the DT members that have been making creations using Michelle's beautiful digis for the last six months of which i was one such DT member until a few months ago when i sadly had to step away and concentrate on other things.


So the challenge for this hop was to make a creation with Leilani and to incorporate the word 'Aloha' meaning hello, goodbye and thank you... and to also write a thank you letter to the DT for all their/our hard work.








My creation kind of came out of no-where. One minute i was struggling with all my digi creations next minute i was printing off several copies at a time to complete this challenge. The strange thing was i was pleased with all my colouring. I decided to make a mobile using Michelle's Leilani and Penelope and Olive. Actually i helped myself out towards the end when i remembered my parasol light fitting i bought from Ikea as it incorporates some lovely flowers and the added advantage of lights so i printed off two of the stamps i was using having reversed them so i had back and front. I set about colouring them with watercolour pencils and then laminated them all...having laminated them i punched holes in the tops and threaded them with some string that i had inked to tone them in with the light fitting. I strung them all to it at intervals and then inked up some chipboard letters and glued them to some more string and attached them to Leilani.I'm quite pleased with my creation it looks like what you might enjoy a malibu and coke under whilst sitting watching the sun go down.









I hope you have enjoyed your time here. I am probably off somewhere blowing out some candles of my own as I'm celebrating my 40th birthday today...Who knows what I'll be doing as I'm writing this on 21/7 so I'm organised in advance. In two days my son finishes nursery all ready to start big school in September. Where does the time go. Anyway enough from me. Hop along now to Bevs and enjoy all the lovely creations :)




Aloha!


To the Michelle Perkett DT


What fun it has been to be part of this DT and to see those that have left each week inspiration to others (myself included). I have learn't alot from all the wonderful cards and creations you have all made, particularly where digital stamps are concerned as up until i joined Michelles group i hadn't really come across them and it's certainly taken some work for me to feel content with what i do with them where colouring is concerned, it's all a learning curve i guess. Thanks to all of you :)


Btw just for fun find out your Hawaiian name here I'm Keli :) And don't forget to check out my extended Blog Hop post below this one :)
