I've been a crafter it seems forever from when I was a little girl learning how to knit and crochet with my grandmother and my aunt; sitting under a quilting loom threading needles for Gram and the ladies at church; learning to sew, quilt, doll sculpting, counted cross stitch and now onto paper piecings with cards and lay-outs!!!! I guess you could say I'm a well-rounded gal in more ways than one!!! LOL
This is the final day of our hop. I would like to thank the lovely ladies in this hop for helping me celebrate my 50th Birthday with a Luau theme hop. I would also like to thank the hoppers for joining us to celebrate my birthday.

Now on to my third and final project for Barbara's birthday project:
This is a combination of itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka dot bikini and soaking up the rays to relax playing beach blanket bingo with the waves just rolling in!!!
With that being said, here's the recipe
the bikini along with the sand was cut from Nifty Fifties
the sun, waves, palm tree and the word "relax" with the beach chair cut from Life's a Beach
the paper from the card was cut from a fabulous package of papers from Pat Catan's which was one terrific bargain for about 30 pieces for $2.00!!!!
the balance of my papers were from my scrap bin
Now, granted, this body will never ever see a bikini again in this lifetime, but a girl can wish!!!! There's always that beach chair in the sand wishing for that coconut drink brought by the cabana boy!!!! A girl can always dream!
Hope you had a great birthday Barbara and I thank all of you attending our three (3) day hop. I had a great time making these projects and hope you enjoyed!!!
