Aloha! Holiday Fund :)

Welcome to my Aloha! Blog Hop project :)  If you have been hopping in order from the start of the hop at Michelle's blog HERE...then you will have hopped here from the lovely crafty CLAIRE'S blog...and from here will hop on to the lovely RANDI'S blog.

Note: My thank you letter is at the bottom of this post

Here is my Aloha project:

I've made a money box from a Kaiser wood tissue box cover!  I cut a piece of chipboard to make a base for the box and painted the box with blue craft paint. Leilani was printed onto Xpress Graphx blending card and coloured with Copics. Glaze and glitter pens were used to highlight areas of the image. She was then cut out and popped up on dots.

The front and side panels were made using Kaiser DP for the 'sky', CM DP for the water and DP from my stash for the sand. The palm tree is a CM die-cut that I've coloured with Copics and added Kaiser pearls to for the 'coconuts'. The side panels have been created using an assortment of CM stickers from my stash and a K & Co 3D umbrella sticker.

To create the lid with the slot I cut a panel of SU CS and the same Kaiser 'sky' DP and cut the money slot with a craft knife. The lid has been hinged with ribbon. The wording is computer generated, with a couple more stickers to finish it off.

The caption reads:  Aloha! Holiday Fund.......All Donations gratefully accepted!

I'm not normally much of a sticker girl but with a sprained wrist happening in the middle of this project, it was out of the question to do any more colouring for the panels...and it was a good way to use up some of those CM stickers I've had in my stash for a looooong time :)

Now off you hop to RANDI'S blog to see her wonderful creation!  Don't forget to leave some love for everyone along the way :)


I'd like to firstly thank Michelle for inviting me to be a member of her DT.  Thank you for everything Michelle...not least your beautiful artwork that I LOVE to colour :)

I've LOVED being a part of this group...they are a fabulous group of ladies...supportive, caring and happy to share...and soooo welcoming of newcomers. They made me feel right at home from the beginning.  

My crafting has grown in ways I would never have imagined since becoming a member of Michelle's PCP group. Everyone has been so encouraging and enthusiastic about my projects...that means so much to me girls...thank you!!

As for the other DT girls...your amazing creations have continually inspired me.  Thank you for being such an amazing group to work with...well, it's been more like playing really lol!!

It has been such a privilege to be a part of this DT. I can't wait to see what Michelle has in store for us
next :)
