Yes, "Aloha" is prominent on this LO, BUT the hidden journal (revealed when the ship is lifted) is about the headband my husband made at the luau to cheer me up. We went to Hawaii for our 26th Anniversary. Hurricane Iniki hit Hawaii 2 days after our arrival. The aftermath had us scrambling to make alternate plans for our 2 week stay. It was very stressful as we were literally on the streets for 18 hours until other arrangements were made. The next afternoon, we purchased matching outfits for the luau, to add some humour to our experience. The outfits had "tourists" written all over them, LOL. A hurricane was not about to spoil our long awaited trip.
All the die cuts were created with my Cricut. Some were coloured or inked. The He'e Berry Lei was fussy cut from a computer printout. Some of the shells are real ones collected on the beaches during our trip. TFL
