This is a Blog Hop for all the Demonstrators from around the world that achieved the Maui Trip.  This is the last in the series to make room for the Caribbean Achiever's Blog Hop.  I sure hope that it will be the new theme.  I will be happy to take part in that one as well because I achieved that trip as well.  

I chose to show you a card that was inspired from my NEW Mystery Challenge Series.  I had to change up the old format because I was starting to lose interest in in from my peeps.  There seems to be lots of interest again.  Here was my first one.

Mystery B&W with red

Wow the cards they made were stunning.  Here is my card using the Hand Penned and Beautifully Penned DSP from Sale-a-Bration.  You only have until September 30 to get this DSP with a minimum purchase for a Level 1 Sale-A-Bration. I will include the shopping list below.
