cruise 2010

so we just returned from our FIRST scrapbook cruise. we went on a 7-night cruise to the mexican riviera (cabo, mazatlan, & puerta vallarta). we decided to take the 2 older kids & it was a blast! it was a great mix of scrapbooking, ship fun, visiting all the ports & family time.

we had the BEST group of scrappers - some scrapped every minute - even into the wee hours of the night & others enjoyed the ship more than they thought they would (ha!) but we were glad to see them for the classes ;) the most important thing to me was that everyone was able to have the kind of vacation THEY wanted. if they wanted to scrapbook 24/7, we had a super nice set-up with having the conference room & everyone had their own table (will not be able to always promise this but it was nice). everyone seemed very pleased with their goody bags (thanks to quick quotes, imaginisce, basicgrey, paperloft, scrapmart, & awesome albums). the classes went smooth - it is so different teaching in an intimate enviroment. all in all, it was a fabulous experience & everyone had the vacation of a lifetime!
my only regret is that i was so caught up in the moment that i did not take near as many photos as i should of. BUMMER! i guess, i will have to do it again so i can capture those memories one more time ;)

so... we are going to do it again ...

royal caribbean Freedom of the Seas leaving from Port Canaveral, Flordia

we are joining transparent touches for the cruise. they will teach some of the classes & i will teach the rest. included in the scrapbook fee: very generous goody bag, crop time, 2 big classes, & 4 other classes. all classes will be taught on sea days & at night after dinner on the days we are at ports. cruise one did such an amazing job with our last cruise with booking everyone & making sure everyone got the best deal. we are using them again (that allows me to focus on the FUN part: designing the classes & surprises :)

we would love for you to join us !!!
