Scrap a Page Sunday

I've had a VERY productive weekend!! My friend Judi came over yesterday and we went shopping at my local scrapbook store, Island Paperie. I have to tell you that some VERY exciting things are in the works at Island Paperie as they prepare to launch an improved online store and will soon be releasing their own line of Hawaiian / tropical themed stamps as well as expanding their digital line!! BIG things are in store. I'll keep you posted as things develop. Be sure to check out their current online store where you can order from their huge supply of beautiful locally designed Hawaiian-themed papers and embelishments.

Anyway, back to my productive weekend. I put my new Island Paperie purchases to good use and made this adorable scrapbook page. I LOVE these new imaginisce products (I FINALLY got the hula penguin stamp!!!). I had the perfect picture of my friend Lori's adorable daughter on the beach on Christmas Eve. We had such a fun day!

All products shown here were purchased at Island Paperie. Everything but the scalloped background paper, So Saffron background paper and chipboard letters is from Imaginisce. I used Photoshop Elements to convert my original photo of Mia to black and white, then "erased" the B/W to reveal her cute swimsuit in color (which matched almost perfectly with the Imaginisce products). You can't tell in the pic, but the chipboard letters are very glittery. I think it turned out well.

And here's a cute little card I made with some of my scraps and my new Imaginisce hula penguin!! Isn't she adorable!?! It was love at first sight when I saw her in one of Theresa's projects over at Addicted to Stamps and Scraps and I just HAD to have her!!
