Hula Girl

Did you ever wear a grass skirt?  This reminds me of the time my friends and I were invited to a "Luau".  Before the big day I happened to be in a party store and they have all kinds of stuff that fit the theme.  Well skirts for all of us would have cost an arm and a leg but there were table covers that had the grass attached and they were cheapo so I picked up a couple and on the night of the party we met in the parking lot and cut up the tablecloths and pinned them together to make skirts for ourselves.  We had a blast and very laughing hysterically.  Well...we went into the party and we were met with lots more laughter.  We were having a grand old time when we noticed that our skirts shed.  OMG, by the time we took them off it looked like somebody had dropped a bale of hay in the place.  That just made us laugh even more.

Here's the deets:
stamp - My Favorite Things "Hula Girl"
ink - Memento "Tuxedo Black"
