Hawaiian Holiday.

 Thank you to all my fabulous customers and demonstrators in my group, I earned a dream vacation to  Hawaii for my husband, Tom and I.  Here's some highlights of our trip.

We started out in San Francisco and spent one beautiful day there (click on the beach picture to see the Golden Gate Bridge in the background) before heading on to Hawaii.IMG_2035

Our hotel was located on a part of Hawaii that was very rocky and almost desert like.

People make natural "graffiti" on the black lava rock using white coral.   Tom made a romantic one with our initials.




These were the views from our hotel balcony…pretty spectacular…the observatory on top of the mountain on one side…the pools and the ocean on another and a waterfall on another.

The first night we were there Stampin' Up gave us a welcome reception pool side with beautiful flowers and shells to wear.

Stampin' UP! spoils you rotten!

There was a gift every night our beds.  There was lovely hawaiian tote bags, stamping supplies, treats,  a sarong and a gorgeous aloha necklace.  WOW!  You can click on any of the pictures to see them larger.

The hotel itself was gorgeous! A bunch of different pools, waterfalls, a golf course, a dolphin pool, a salt water lagoon (where we snorkled), hammocks to lay in, and beautiful sunsets.

Here's two of the attractions I enjoyed every day.  There were whales jumping in the ocean right beside the hotel (see the tail up out of the can click on the picture to make it bigger).  And every evening a sunset the torch lighter would blow an conch shell and then run the entire 1/4 path around the edge of the resort (in barefeet! and not much else) and light the torches each night.

We saw many beautiful places on the Island including waterfalls, an active volcano, sea turtles and a black sand beach made from Lava Rock.  IMG_2385 IMG_2509 IMG_2515 IMG_2474 Of course we made some time for business and all the demonstrators gathered for a meeting led up the owner of Stampin' Up! Shelli Gardner.  They showed us some sneak peaks of upcoming stamp sets and the new in-colours.  Unfortunately I can't post any of that information, but I'll tell you when I see you at a class all about it!

Our last night in Hawaii, Stampin' Up gave us a beautiful Luau and I learned how to make a Lei.
