Enjoying Yummy Shave Ice...oh ohhh Leilani, what happened?

These adorable images by Sister Stamps sure brings back memories of when my hubby (then boyfriend) and I took a drive to the north shore on Oahu and enjoyed some yummy shave ice at Matsumoto Store.   They had the best!!! After we got married and moved to the Big Island, we continued to enjoy this refreshing treat at Itsu's.   I like mine with ice cream, azuki beans, and strawberry syrup.  Ummmm.

I used these fun dies to create this scene....
"Country Landscape" by Memory Box
Clouds from the "Spring Showers" die set by Lawn Fawn
"Stitched Scalloped Border" by Lawn Fawn

All of the dies are from Island Scrapbooking.

Also used the "Daisy Rock" image by Little Miss Muffet (I LOVE this stamp!!!) and Stickles on the shave ice.  Anuhea and Leilani's blouses were paper-pieced with itty-bitty scraps that I had.  They sure come in handy.  Oh, and to add dimension, I made tiny little bows using a single-strand of embroidery floss.  I swear these were the tiniest bows I've ever made.  FUN!

Thanks for stopping by and HAVE A SCRAP HAPPY DAY!!!
