  13. What a wonderful springy project! Thanks for playing at RCC.

  14. thanks for your reply girlie! i was so upset last night! I DID write that bad Yelp review!

    and you were here? the outrigger is where we recommend anyone visiting us to stay. :) my husband proposed 4 years ago on that strip of beach in front of Duke's after we had dinner (I had the macadamia fish too!)

    there's no bridge to the actual arizona memorial, you need to take the ferry. it's in the middle of the water. but there's a ford island bridge (military base) that will take you to the uss missouri. its also where they shot the movie pearl harbor. i used to work at the convenience store there when i was in college. :D

    the ferry is kinda iffy too. i think half of the time that i've went (to take family, field trips, etc) the rides were cancelled for some reason or another. its also very hard to get a ticket.

  15. Great Easter basket! Thanks for playing with our CAS challenge at CropStop!

  16. Great job Melissa! Love the paper you used! Thanks for sharing with us at Creative Cutter Room.
