To create this layout I created a raised texture paste pineapple design on my background using a die and and some stencils. I added some color with watercolor paints.

I created a frame of 3 pineapples 
I store my stencils like this so they are easy to look through.
I used removable tape to lightly tack this contraption down while spreading texture paste.


I painted my pineapple background and other die cuts for a personalized touch.

This layout is about when my aunt and uncle stopped by on their cruise ship for a visit!
This is an old school trick-hidden journaling LOL


My aunt is my mother’s youngest sister and 14 years older than me. After I gave them a grand tour of Oahu we went out for a family dinner at my favorite Italian restaurant.That day with my Aunt and Uncle we made some goooood memories. Now I will always remember them!

Now let’s go enjoy the rest of the hop! I can’t wait to see what everyone created with the February kit!
