Luau…Just Beachy

Catherine Projects

I'm still dreaming of Hawaii…how long is that going to last and when will I return to reality?  I wanted to share a few photos of our last evening there.  Stampin' Up threw us a big ole Luau.  It was AMAZING!  The food was incredible, and the atmosphere just about took me over the top!  When we walked in there were the sweetest little girls waiting with Leis to greet us.  Here I am getting mine, how cute is that?

We spent a while walking around mingling…here I am with a fellow North Carolinian Incentive Trip Earner, Martha Armstrong.  We met a few years ago when we were on our way to the Panama Canal (another one thanks to SU!) and our luggage was lost…a quick $300 trip to Target before getting on that boat and we became fast friends!

While moseyin' around (how the heck do ya spell that!?) we took in the craft booths.  They had Hawaiian artists making leis, weaving baskets, carving wood, and more.  That was way cool.

Those little cuties were great dancers.

Me and my honey.  This dress…are you kidding me?  I took one look at it and Charlotte Russe became my best friend.  I thought it was perfect!  Now I gotta figure where else I can wear it….

Lastly, I must leave you with some stamping projects!  Here are a couple that were on display in the hospitality suite.

And this one uses Just Beachy, the brand new super fun set from the Stampin' Up Spring Occasions Mini Catalog.   Yup…this one is a Catherine Original.  I was inspired before leaving on the trip and made it right before leaving.

Ok…I'm about off to bed…I'm going to be sad though, because I drank my last bit of Kona coffee this morning.  Have you ever had Kona Coffee?  OH MY WORD.  It's delish.

I was telling a friend that I didn't drink any coffee in the room, and when I was packing up, I threw all the packets into my suitcase and cursed myself for not doing that every day.  She asked me why I didn't just buy a bag.  Uh, HELLO!  A bag of Kona Coffee costs $20.  That's TWO packages of Corduroy Buttons!  Geez, does she think I'm crazy?  hehehe…
