My father worked for American Airlines, and with working for an airline comes privlidges.  So as teenagers, we got to travel to many places. We would have to go stand by, but we didn't care, we would just pack up our bags and go, and what ever flight had room is where we'd end up. One time we tried for Italy and ended up in Switzerland. This was the way we traveled, and I kind of got used to it. I just wish I took advantage of more than I did,  but at least my parents did.

 Anyway, this little sweetie reminded me of my trip to Hawaii and the fun we had on our little "adventure". You see, my Mom came up with this bright idea that since we were already half-way there, let's visit Australia. So my Dad calls up and books us on the next flight out. Only problem, we had summer clothes, and it was winter there... So it wasn't a well thought out plan on my Mother's part,, so we literally stayed for two nights and then flew back to sunny Hawaii, where I hope to go again some day. I used this little hula dancer called Kalei that you can find HERE

My angle shot:

I hope I inspired someone to join in on the fun, I can't wait to see what you come up with, just don't for get to use one of Mo's images. If you need more inspiration don't forget to visit the rest of the teams blogs they really out did themselves and came up with some great ideas just click HERE to see what they came up with and as Pat always says, don't forget to leave them a little love.

You were lucky to be able to fly lots of places. I didn't take my first flight till I got married. Boring I know. ha! This is adorble. Very Hawaii feel with the colors and flowers. Beautiful card.

Hee! Your holidays certainly sounded like real adventures!
Gorgeous card Debbie, that's such a sweet hula girl, pretty colour combo too!

Hehe, your stories made me laugh! How amazing this was to be able to travel and see so many places! Oh, I wish my father was at least a bus driver instead of a veterinary:)). As a kid, we rarely left home, I had to wait until I got married to leave the house.
Anyways, I would also love to go toi Hawaii, and now, upon seeing your adorable card I wish so badly I was there!!!
Great mixture of colors on your card, looks so happy and cheeerful! And that green really conveys lots of optimism! Love this!
