Aloha and welcome to my Luau Blog Hop. Yesterday you were invited to come to a luau and now today you are invited to relax and do the hula with a moose.

I love MOOSE so when I found this adorable hula moose, I just knew he had to become part of my decorations for my Luau blog hop. I used a brick red stamp to give him a light sunburn and I used my Bic markers to color his antlers, lai,and grass skirt.

The moose, flowers, and letters are all svg files and ttf files. The moose was designed by Mary over at Mary's (more or less) and the hibiscus flowers on the letters came from a Luau set I bought at SVG Attic and the letters are one of my ttf files. I cut everything at 8 inches.

I was going to make this a garland but I love using Blu-Tack to hang things up. I found Blu-Tack back in my college days when you weren't allowed to poke holes in the walls. It works on semi-gloss and glossy walls without leaving permanent marks when you remove it.

Here is a close up of the letters. The paper stack is Mimosa by s.e.i.

Aloha for now and hop on over to see Cindy
