Hawaii Cardstock Sticker Shocker

Aloha from Hawaii...that's me sitting on the beach and posing in my floppy brimmed hat.
Over on the right is Hi Honey...husband...standing knee deep in the calm surf of
Oahu with Diamond Head in the background.
The International Market Place was one of the places we visited when we were in Hawaii....
Forty-five years ago in 1970!
 
I wonder if things in Hawaii have changed as much as we have in the last forty-five years?   I suspect so!  I know for sure if we were there today, we would both have to get new swim suits.  Gone are the days of my being seen in public in a two piece bathing suit, and HiHoney...well, he might need a size or two larger.

I'd love to go again, and there's a chance that might happen since a nephew recently moved there.  But in the meantime, I'm having a great time Scrapbooking our Military RandR vacation from March 1970.

It's another section of our 'Two Year Hitch in the Army' Scrapbook, and RandR was about the ONLY perk for serving a year out of country.  The 'Perk' for waiting all these years to put together this Scrapbook is the fantastic Scrapbooking Materials available now...like the 'Cardstock Sticker' sheet with Hawaii stickers.  Back in the Day...1970...there were no cool stickers, no decorative papers, and no Acid Free adhesives.  Today all of those materials are Acid Free.  What a difference that will make years from now.  I will never have to Re-Do this 'Memory Book' due to yellowed paper, dried out scotch tape and falling apart albums.

The variety of Stickers, Papers and Albums is endless. 
There are stickers for every occasion, event and activity you can imagine. 
The colors, patterns and themes of paper packs cover everything from
Christmas to Camouflage.
I've been a Scrapbooker most of my life, and I'm here to tell you
NOW is the BEST TIME of All.
Did I mention People Places and Things Stickers?
Just look at how the 'Cardstock Stickers' for Washington DC dressed up
Our Capitol Visit at Cherry Blossom Time in April 1969.

  2. I'd like to get some of my old photos into scrapbooks - always meaning to, but haven't ever managed to find the time. One of these days!...

  3. I want to go to Hawaii! I also want to start scrapbooking, but that dream always seems to fall into the category of "one of these days." *sigh*

    Have a great weekend. ☺

  5. I love scrapebooking and need to get back to it! I was in Hawaii in 1968-69 and saw many R&R couples since I worked at the PX on Ft DeRussy on Waikiki! Gosh those were the days. Thanks for your great tips!

  6. I've been to Hawaii once, and it was very lovely. In your photo you look like you're having lots of fun...and what a great scrapbook.

    Thank you for the tip on making your own stickers, Sue. Sounds quite do-able.

    It was great to read your comment. Thank you for stopping by to visit my blog.

    Blessings for great weekend,

    Marianne

  8. When I visited Sedona, Arizona, I found the perfect stickers for my Sedona scrapbook. They were Sedona-specific. I wish more places were like that. Oh, yes, you can find stickers for New Orleans, New York, Paris, London, Hawaii, Florida, etc. But "lesser" known attractions should offer stickers too.
