SOS: Apple of my eye

Wow, another week gone by, and we are already past the middle of September!
This week, Chris is our hostess at Shopping Our Stash, and she chose the theme "Apple of my eye"-- use your apple stash!

Ahem... I, uh, view the world through a different lense sometimes... or maybe I just need new lenses... I added *pine* to the "apple" part of the challenge...

So... get out your apple stash of any sort!

Here are the cards I put together:

I was thinking of the lobby of the Grand Wailea in Maui, which had a very cool, turn-of-the-century Hawaiian feel to it.

Supplies and notes:
  • Pineapple stamp by Stampabilities
  • "Thanks" stamp by Stamp Simply
  • Both stamps inked with Versamark Dazzle Watermark pad in Champagne then embossed with Ranger EP in Princess Gold
  • Liquid Pearls in White Opal
  • DP by DCWV
  • Tim Holtz metallic Kraft-core
  • Burlap (from Autumn, thanks!) by Hobby Lobby
  • 3M dimensional adhesive, Glossy Accents, and Tombow adhesives
I'll see you over at SOS for your apple-licious projects!
