The Heart Desires: Aloha






If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you may have seen this:


Ingredients for a project I was working on earlier this week....turned out like this:


Pineapples have become like coffee...can't have enough of them...in real life too.  Love this set by Concord & 9th, Pop Art Pineapples.  Isn't the Pebbles, Everyday paper perfect for the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge?



I used the following Hero Arts ink colors:

Butter Bar  •  Navy  •  Orchid  •  Gold

Make sure you pop over to The Heart Desires shop!

Envision this scene-- super crazy motel summer day, in walks a pretty energetic Australian gal who's just landed in the US for a 6 month tour and staying at the Inn and looking to get the lay of the land and buy camping gear. She's wearing a pineapple sundress and a cool straw hat. I say, "You must be cool, you're wearing a pineapple dress, did you know that pineapples are trending in the paper crafting world?" Oh I am such a dork.

This is just lovely! I agree that pineapples have become quite the rage (too bad I don't own any! Must fix that!) Great use of the colors from this week's Cupcake Inspirations Challenge. Also adore all the different patterns!
