Aloha and Spring CLH Giveaway Winner

When I saw all the pineapple goodness at Paper Smooches, getting the new
stamps and dies was a no brainer. Pineapple 1, Pineapple 2, Pineapple Crush.
Even their names are cute!

Born and raised in Hawaii, I.LOVE.PINEAPPLES.
Didn't love it so much as a a teen. Working in a pineapple cannery was my
first summer job. Thankfully, I didn't suffer with "pine rash" but I couldn't eat it
for a while. Now, I'm a huge fan. I can demolish a whole pineapple in two days.

I adhered the Criss Cross diecut at an angle, added the pineapple and a few
flowers. I adhered the white embossed sentiment, pulled up some of the crown
for interest, and finished off with a few enamel dots.

Regarding the giveaway winner.....
Apologies for not posting this sooner, but I had several glitches with some of
the comments that were left for the Coffee Lovers Hop giveaway. Either I had
no way of contacting the winner, or they did not answer my question as to
what was their favorite beverage choice.

Then I thought, what the heck, I'll just go with Random.org and since I had
two sets, I chose two winners. And they are:

Celeste Goff and AJ Bodine

Congratulations, ladies! I have contacted you and await your response.
Thanks to everyone who hopped along and entered the giveaway!
