Punch Art Hula girl and Hawaiian Stamp-n-Lunch Photos

So my Stamp-n-Lunch was this past Sunday and it was AMAZING!! Thanks Marie, for hostessing!!
Marie has quite the talent in kitchen and as a 'thank-you' I ordered her a personalized stamp:
Here is her thank-you gift..
It's a personalized stamp that we now sell...great for the holidays!! (pg. 147 IBC). This one says 'From Marie's Kitchen'...and let me tell you she is QUITE the cook!!Check this out....
As beautiful as this is...this is NOTHING!!
This is the card made to go along with her gift, since the cards we made were all 'beachy' and the theme was Hawaiian...I needed something that looked like Hawaii!! I am laughing though because to me she looks like an 'asian' hula girl...nothing wrong with that right?? I'm actually jealous of her tan!

Here is the card that I made to go along with her card:

Hard to tell from the photo...but I used the Elegant Bouquet embossing folder (115964). This 'hula' punch art girl was inspired/CASED from Linda Aarhus click here for photo tutorial.
I wanted a matching box to hold the I used a piece of DSP Patterns Stack (2012-2014 In Color)...asked the hubby to come up with some measurements and Voila~
Here all wrapped up and ready to go:

When it comes to decorations...along with our 'Hawaiian' theme...she leaves NOTHING out!!
The drinks were kept cool with frozen water balloons...clever huh??
Here were the treat bags for the guests:

They were made using the new Floral Frames Framelits (127012).

For the door prize I made a set of coasters..these are just 4x4 tumbled marble tiles...sold at your local hardware store. The shell images are from By the Seashore stamp set (126532 C), embossed with gold embossing powder/heat tool...or you could heat them in your oven.
On the back I applied cork shelf liner...EASY!! Peel and stick baby!!

Packaged up:

It was quite the afternoon!! When the ladies were finished with their card, they could choose their hunk and pose...what fun!!
