Hula Girl At Heart



She owns a window to the ocean
She has a pipeline to the sky
But earthly creatures rarely notice
When Guardian Angels pass them by

Like a gecko behind a painting
With hidden wisdom to impart
In a world that needs more dancing
She’s a hula girl at heart
Photographs show she is lovely
Her bare feet are a work of art
Her fragrance speaks of frangipani
Yes she’s still a hula girl at heart....



I don't know about you, but I have been having so much fun with these TCP Tuesday challenges! The second I saw Carole's challenge I knew what kind of scene I wanted to create. I wish that you could see all of the shimmer and texture on this card. The sand and sky shimmer like crazy and the little seashells and starfish are popped up.


I'm cracking myself up with this card with Poochie being buried in the sand and having visions of 'adult beverages' in his head while Sprinkle is just happily hula'ing away! LOL! The best part of the card though (if I do say so myself) is that Sprinkle actually DOES DO the Hula! I made it so that her little skirt moves back and forth! I HAD to borrow Carole's idea for the sun (it was just too stinkin perfect to pass up). Here's some close up pics of Sprinkle doing the Hula! Thank you Carole for a great challenge!
