Lilo's Fun Friday #23

Happy Aloha Friday everyone!!

According to Blogger, this is my 500th post!!  How cool is that?!  Way!!  Well at least for me! ;)  That's a pretty good milestone & reason to do a give-a-way, yah?  So in honor of my 500th post, I am going to do a random draw to one lucky commenter and you will receive a RAK of my choosing.  Please do not post this to your blog, there will be a time limit until tomorrow at noon (PST).  Good luck!!

For today's LFF share I have the second version of the bookmarks that were offered as make and takes at the stamp convention.  It is the exact same bookmark except for the main character, sans the butterfly.  This one was the most popular and we actually ran out of images.  Here is Yoshimi from Sister Stamps:

The colors used are exactly the same as the Cherry Blossom Rin bookmark that I shared on Wednesday.  Here are a couple pictures from the convention with some of the new fans of Sister Stamps.  We were happy to find a couple that already knew about them as well.

Everyone was super excited to see a brand new line of stamps at this show.  We could not keep them on the shelf!  We were not the only ones premiering the Sister Stamps line, our friends at Hanko Designs also had a hard time keeping them on the shelves!

As you can see, they sold out as fast as we did!  And do you see the card in the center of it all?  Well that is a sample by none other than Jenny from Sister Stamps.  It was gorgeous, I wanted to buy it!!  In the second picture is Renate' with some goodies in her arms, HD demonstrator, Lori Lai & owner of Hanko Designs, Norm Yoshida.  We ALWAYS have a good time here.  :)

Well my friends, I hope you liked these snippets of our time at the stamp show.  I will be sharing the rest of the pictures including the make & takes we had featuring images from La-La Land Crafts & TGF, BOTH  were also fan favorites.  For now, I'm going to sign off and wish you all a happy ALOOOOOHAAAA!  Mahalo for stopping by! 


Have you all been by the Sister Stamps blog the past couple of days?  Release #7 is being previewed and you have a chance to win 1 of 3 boy stamps.  For all the fun details and to see some really amazing samples head on over to the Sister Stamps blog and make sure to leave a comment for a chance to win.  Here is an introduction to Katsura where you will start.  Have fun and good luck!


Supplies used:
White and kraft cs (Neenah), black cs (Recollections); Brambleberry blossoms/garden party dp (Imaginisce); embossing folder (Cuttlebug); gems; MS butterfly punch; extra small and small sakura punches; pink and black ribbon (stash)
