Viva La Verve August week #4

It's been such a crazy busy month that this is the only Viva La Verve sketch I had time to play with!! But there were some good ones this month, so I printed them all off and plan to use them eventually! The Twist this week was to use your favorite color combo with the sketch. Well, you all know that my fave color combo is pretty much Kraft + anything else - LOL - so I just went with this. It's actually a new combo for me, but I kinda like it!!

I used Kraft, Chocolate Chip, Ruby Red, More Mustard and Baja Breeze along with the new Party Time stamp set and my fave Bountiful Backgrounds from the latest Verve release. I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out!!

If you haven't already, be sure you stop by the Verve Blog and check out the Project Parade that kicked off a few days ago - the Divas have some amazing creations posted already!! And if you play along, you just might win some Verve goodies!!

Ok, I'm keeping this short and sweet. We're headed out tomorrow morning for a little Mini "Stay-Cation" at the Grand Wailea resort. Dean had so much fun swimming there last week that we decided to make a little vacation out of it. And yes, the resort is only about 10 miles from our house, but when you live on Maui and can't afford a plane ticket anywhere else - you do what you can!!! ha!! :-) Anyway, we'll be there for 3 full days soaking up the sun, playing in the pools and just hanging out. Dean will be with us Friday and Saturday morning, then he's going to my Mom's until Sunday night so Joel and I will have some super relaxing alone time too!! We're planning to use that time being uber lazy at the Hibiscus pool (no kids allowed - ahhh - do you hear that? It's the sweet sound of silence!!!), catching up on some reading, and probably having a few mai tais at the swim-up bar!!! I have a blog post or 2 scheduled for the weekend, so hopefully Blogger will cooperate! 3 Days is the longest I've gone in a Looooong time away from my craft room, so let's hope I survive!!!

Have a good weekend!
