Mo's Challenge #104

Sweet Leilani

I'm hostessing the challenge again this week, and I thought it would be fun to use a song for inspiration. We all have songs that remind us of places we've been,  people we love, or  those tunes that make us feel happy or nostalgic. 
Several songs came to mind for me, but I settled on "Sweet Leilani" because my husband was born in Hawaii, and I just love visiting the Islands. In fact, we are going again when school gets out in June with two of our children, their spouses and all of our grandchildren! It will be my third visit, and I can hardly wait!

I've used "Pineapple Girl" which is one from Mo's series of little girls with different fruits. They are all just adorable! 
The seed pods in the picture were some we picked up on the beautiful Hawaiian beaches during our last visit.

Tools: Copics, Prismacolor Pencil, Cricut machine, Mounting tape

Papers: SU! Soft Shadow,  Groovy Guava, Certainly Celery, Garden Green  CS, Neenah smooth white, Textured DP from stash, Corrugated cardboard

Embellishments: Magic Mesh, Prima flowers, Flower brad

So now it's your turn to  make a card or project that is inspired by a favorite song using one of Mo's images, and join us in Mo's Challenge for a chance to win one of her wonderful images to add to your collection!

So happy you visited!

For the life of me, i was trying to figure out what song this was, and if it was a test, I would have failed big time...Love this card, it is beautiful... Wish I could join you in Hawaii when you go in the summer...

Great card and great theme! I love it! Now I will have to look at each entry not only to see the creation but to see what song inspired it!

Wishing you a happy day!
