Aloha From Home - Mo Manning Pineapple Girl

 The most wasted of all days is one without laughter.    E.E. Cummings

Mo Manning Pineapple Girl digi, Tattered Lace frame dies,
Cricut writing feature,gems, paper flower, gold leaving pen

Hey there from Nannyland,

I should be eagerly packing for a much anticipated trip to Hawaii next week, but the Governor has politely asked tourists to stay home while the State gets its off-the-charts Covid numbers in check.  I'm happy to comply and know that I will be able to return there soon when things settle down.  In the meantime, I'll just pacify myself by coloring some sunny tropical images.  This adorable Mo Manning digi called Pineapple Girl is just what I needed to put me in a happy beachy frame of mind.

The shaped card is created with Tattered Lace nested frame dies.  The background comes from my ever growing collection of digi backgrounds.  I'm loving digi papers more and more because they take up no space and it's easy to scroll through them on my computer to find just what I'm looking for.  I lined each panel  and the sentiment (created with the Cricut writing feature) with a gold leafing pen and added  a bejeweled flower and butterfly for a little glitz.  I used mounting tape to attached my fussy cut image to my main panel.  So fun, so easy, so sunshiny. 

Thanks for visiting Nannyland.
I'll just be here blissfully creating until your next visit.
