During the month of February, I have had several occasions to create projects from our Painted With Love Suite. This week I will use these products at my monthly downline Inspiration Night!
I also featured these products at last week's Bunco games.
Everyone who comes to Bunco gets to take home a hand stamped favor and one person goes home with an Aloha Prize.
The favors I made this month were these cute Narrow Note cards that were covered with our Painted With Love Specialty Designer Paper. This Designer Paper is so gorgeous. I especially love the gold that is displayed on each piece that really makes this paper shimmer and shine!
I used the "Lot's To Love Box" framelits that are a part of this suite to cut out this cute striped heart that provides a base for the sentiment, "Sending Heartfelt Thoughts".
This card is small. It is one of our Narrow Note cards which are perfect for little Valentine cards or gift card holders. They also are great to just have on hand to pass out to friends, neighbors or co workers when they need some encouragement. They would also be great as a card in a bouquet of flowers or attached to a gift.
As people arrived at Bunco they saw these cute cards all lined up on display along with the Aloha Prize and 6 product prize bundles.
Our Aloha Prize was this photo frame I purchased at Wal Mart and embellished with die cut hearts.
During Bunco we usually pass the Aloha Prize around the room until a winner is determined at the end of the game. Since this prize was made of glass I had a fun idea of something else to pass around instead.
And here it is, a fancy heart headband!
This idea turned out to be really fun and brought lots of smiles to everyone's faces.
Whoever has this headband on at the end of the game determines who the big winner of the night will be. They get to take home not only the headband but the Aloha Prize and their pick of one of the product prize bundles!
The headband was small so I told everyone that they didn't have to wear it in case it would give them a headache. Everyone was a great sport, including Tom who played with us this month!
Our big winner on Sunday was Goldie who is pictured here with her baby Duke.
On Monday, it was Mary's turn to take home the Aloha Prize.
I love gathering each month with all of the friends who come to play Bunco. We talk, we eat, we laugh and cheer each other on. It really is one of my favorite things to host each month.
Immediatly following Bunco I went on a date night with my ohana to Sansei. Although we have been going on these group date nights for years, this was the second year in a row we went there to celebrate.
Sansei is located at the Waikiki Beach Marriott Resort and Spa. My favorite hotel in Waikiki! Their food is amazing and if you go during their Happy Hour the prices are GREAT! It was wonderful to go there with friends for a delicious dinner and a great time of fellowship.
The bible says in I John 4:7, "Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God."
I hope these words will serve as an encouragement to you today because there are so many people in this world that are discouraged and hurting. As we take the time to draw near to God, He will draw near to us and give us a greater understanding of His great love so that we in turn share it with others.
God is love and love is all we need!
