Hawaii album, continued

Page 2:
Lobby of the Outrigger Waikiki. My sisters, Kath & Sue. The pics aren't as dark in person, sorry they are difficult to see in the scans. The bottom two photos are the 100 year old outrigger and the huge wall mural in the lobby of the hotel. Embellishments are the room key and a coaster. Hibiscus and leaves are, of course, QuicKutz.


Page 3:
This page is so much prettier IRL. The pinks are softer, the stickles actually twinkle, and the ribbons are pretty orange that coordinate perfectly. Hrumph. Title is QuicKutz Fiesta and Chocolate mini; shells, leaves and hibiscus are also QK; palm tree is Jolee's.

Journaling on the small tag:
The Royal Hawaiian Hotel, known worldwide as the Pink Palace of the Pacific, has been visited by Presidents, Royalty, and Hollywood stars since it first opened its doors in February, 1927.


Bottom photo caption tag:
Diamondhead - from our beach chairs

Journaling at the bottom of the page:
With its backdrop of Diamondhead and Waikiki Beach, The Royal Hawaiian hotel is still the icon of luxury.

Fun Facts:
In the 1930s, The Royal Hawaiian hotel invented the non-alcoholic drink, the Shirley Temple, when the star visited there as a child.

We also have the The Royal Hawaiian to thank for making the Mai Tai so popular.
