Fun and Creative time on Tuesday!

So its been a week since I have posted. I have been busy this week. Well, really I have been having fun this week. Its my last week of play before going back to work on Monday.
On Tuesday, a very Dear Friend of mine and Moms, came over to spend the day with us. She is so talented and creative. Charlotte is also Hawaiian and so pretty too! She told me what my name is in Hawaiian.
She brought some fun goodies to play with too. She brought her Color Mists sprays. They come in so many amazing colors. We all made several background pages using the Mists. Charlotte also brought some stamps that her daughter, Lotus, hand carved. Oh boy, did I have fun with them. I had bought a Speedball stamp carving kit at Mi*chaels a couple of years ago and had never used it. But now I am having a ball carving my own stamps thanks to being inspired by Lotus's stamps.
Charlotte also brought some goodies for Mom and I too. My favorite is a material that is actually made in Hawaii. Its made from bark from the trees over there and then dyed and has patterns in it. I am going to cover some books with mine. I will make a picture of it for a later post.
But I used the color mists background pages and the stamps and made some Journal pages.
I am going to make some more today and not write on them. I hate my handwriting but I wanted to remember the fun day so I went ahead and Journaled on the pages that I made.
Charlotte's name in Hawaiian is Halaki. My name, Elizabeth, is Elikapeka. I guess it is "Peka" for short.
Of course I was having so much fun that I forgot to take pictures, I hate when I do that. But I will always remember the fun we had together. Lotus still lives in California and I hope I get to meet her one day.
I hope every one is doing well and having a great week. Have a fun week-end too.

Looks like you had some fun! I really like the carved stamps. I've done a few but nothing very detailed. I've also done a couple just using pink erasers. But they're only good for small stamps.

Hi, Beth! That looks like fun -- how nice you and Charlotte could get together! I'm just catching up after being gone and hope all is well with you, your stepdad and everything. More later.

Thanks for stopping by the blog and your sweet comments about Thomas and my art.

How fun for you all to get together. Those are some awesome pages! I've done carved erasers, but nothing very detailed. Have been too cheap to buy the bigger pieces to carve on. Need to try to remember to get some with a discount coupoon at Hobby Lobby sometimes.

You are doing some beautiful journal pages these days! Hope you had a great summer off and that your upcoming year is a good one.
