May Day is Lei Day

Standard

I love the traditions of May Day here in Hawaii. May Day is Lei day and all the schools have the children create performances of hula for family and friends. It’s something I look forward to every year. And in addition, you are supposed to wear a flower lei!

Though I don’t have a lei for you this month, these flowers from the Honey Bee Stamp set would eh the perfect flowers to weave into a lei.

I really love the Honey Bee set and you will see it again this year. It is now retired. But it was a good one. I use the mango medley blends to color the flowers. Super simple but they give a nice gradient feel to the image.

I can’t believe May is already upon us. In some ways it is so fast but in other ways, I’m glad it is signaling the final stretch in what seems to be the never ending school year. It’s been a long year and I’m DEFINITELY looking forward to summer. And I love that these flowers symbolize that!
