Hau`oli la hanau !

Five years ago my sister and her family set out on a crazy adventure and they moved halfway around the world to Hawaii. Its been great. We get a trip out of it every year to the North Shore of Oahu in the middle of winter. We just got back from three weeks at the beginning of February and it was awesome. I love it there, and am mildly jealous that my sister lives there and can go to the beach anytime she feels like it, gets to wear shorts and flip flops year round......sigh if only.

My Brother In Laws birthday is coming up next week, and I decided because they live in the sun and surf that I was going with that theme for his gift and present. We bought a shirt and a hat from a store called Life is Good. The shirt has an old Woodie with a surfboard on it. Once I had the shirt in my hand I remembered that I actually owned a stamp set that had the same thing in it. I haven't used my SU Just Beachy set in ages, but of course it was great luck that I had it.

So I decided to go with some beachy colours and do a little beach scene using the woodie with the surfboard on the roof rack. I did all the colouring with my SU water colour pencils (they are quickly becoming my favourite tool to use for colouring)

I think its pretty cool Dude!

Stamps: SU Just Beachy
Ink: Colourbox Dragonfly Black & SU Watercolour pencils
