Tropical Oasis

Its time!! Its finally here!!! Its time for me to believe I am on a tropical island.... Sipping cocktails ..... being cooled by a palm leave fan... I can smell the coconuts, hear the waves crashing on the shore... YEAH RIGHT!!!!!

Its time for my daughter's 13th birthday party... no relaxation there!!! Its been 3 months in the preparing stages. Its been nonstop for the last three weeks. I have one week to go. I couldn't even get her to relax one simple minute.. But the invites are complete. The favors are still in the making or actually (if you have a teen you will understand this..) still up for the debate! I laugh, because I see myself in this child more and more every day!!

Four invites later... she finally decided on this one..

with the palms in the middle.. and she was too excited to leave ONE blank for me to get picture at the time! URGH!!! {{sigh, this will get better}}

Next it was favor discussion:

It started out with that face she makes when she doesn't like anything... then it went to a deciding face... then she said "Not now, I am not sure.".. and then a week later we were back at it. She isn't totally convinced this is what she wants. Things might get ugly.. especially if the list grows to the point where I need more paper!

I used the Matchbox die, and I love these little boxes.

All items are made with the new Tropical Oasis DSP in the Summer mini catalog. I love the prints and am finding I have been reaching for it with all that I create lately. Next I want to book my little tropical vacation!

Thanks for stopping by!
