The layout was based on a page sketch I found on the Net. I based my colours on my picture's, but I wasn't sure how I liked it at first, but now I think I don't mind it so much. (My sister said the colours were nice and she couldn't care less about scrapbooking, so I think that's a sign!)
The picture was taken at Universal Studios. I thought of it immediately when I received the Do the Hula set.
The Teal ribbon is actually white grosgrain that I dyed using my reinker. Worked better than I expected! (I had an "incident" when I dyed a ribbon with the Classic ink before and it bled, so I had never dyed anything since). I just might get on the dye train now (and get those pretty new fibers...).
And, yes, the waves at the bottom right are made with the coffee steam from "Espress Yourself". ;)

Love this. I especially love how you were able to use so many different stamp sets to do a scrapbook page. I really want to use my stamps more for scrappin' and this is a great inspiration. Great page. Thanks for sharing it.
