I made this card during Sale-A-Bration and had every intention to send it to Stampin' Up! but time was not on my side. So, I thought I should share anyways.

Keana Mei Ling Wong

It was a wonderful surprise when Norm's cousin Keith came down to LA for a a short unexpected weekend trip. We were so lucky to finally meet Keana...she was born October 24, 2008 @ 7 pounds 6.5 ounces. I remember her arriving a week late because we spent time visiting with the parents-to-be during the time Keana was to arrive. =)

Big Foot

You have to wonder what happened when Norm was sitting in the sun in Hawaii.

I thought he was peeling but nope. I could not stop laughing when Norm showed me what he had done...

...not on purpose, of course. Just had to share because this was a creative accident.

Kind Thoughts Flourish Cards

This card uses a three new items featured in SU!'s Occasions Mini Catalog.
Stamp set: Oval All, Scallop Oval Punch and Walk in the Park DSP. Pretty sweet.
Color combination: Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze, Basic Gry and Whisper White.

I was inspired by Patty Bennett when I saw her use SU!'s Decor Elements Kind Thoughts Flourish stencil to create her cards. I thought I come up with a couple of ideas and this was super fast, fun, eash with an elegant look. The best part...the stencil is only $9.95.

Introducing Evan Christopher Lau

There has been a lot going on the last several weeks and I'm just catching up today. I'm proud to introduce the newest addition to the Lau nephew, Evan Christopher Lau. He was born the day after Norman and I left for Hawaii on April 23, 2009 @ 2:13 am. He weighed 7lbs 3 ounces...arriving 2.5 weeks early. Mom and baby are doing great. Evan is 6 days old in this picture.

Happy Hawaii

The week was kicked-off with a reception at poolside with music, food and great company.

Each day we got to spin the wheel to see what we've won. The wheel changed daily. Below are just some of the gifts I won.

Each evening after dinner, SU! would leave wonderful gifts...bags, jewelry, snacks and more.

Norman needed one last snack before leaving the Waikoloa Hilton...
