Creepy Cool


Hello Hello!  Guess what?  I finally have a non-digi page to show you!  He he!
I created this for one of the newest challenges up at Candy Shoppe Designs called
Just scrap about summer and you're good!

I scrapped this photo from our family trip to Hawaii last summer.  It was a weird, rainy, and windy day...but still much better than being in Washington so we had NO complaints!
We spent some time at Pali Lookout.

Pictures from the  Pali Lookout - Oahu, Hawaii

I love learning about history so reading about the bloody battle that took place here was both intriguing and creepy at the same time.  Basically King Kamehameha I united the Hawaiian Islands.  He would go to the islands conquering them.  On Oahu, he waged a battle against the island's defenders, driving them to this area.  It was a cliffside and the strategy for Kamehameha's soldiers was to drive the native inhabitant fighters over the cliffs, killing them.  The view is spectacular.  There you will also find an artist's depiction of the battle and soldiers being driven, swords in hand, off the cliff.

You definitely have this sort of creepy feeling as you look out onto the island.  As a child I remember many ghost stories.  People definitely try not to stop here at night!

Well thanks for stopping by!  Just whip up a quick layout and link up to CSD!
Ya never know, you could be the next winner!
