First off I would like to apologize for the delay in posting about the cruise. If things got any crazier around here I would be begging for a bottle of valium and a shot of gin! Anyway I am going to try and get more posted...I PROMISE *okie says a little prayer hoping she can keep her promise*.
We received a little booklet that had our schedule and showed the classes and projects we would be working on. Sadly there wasn't enough to go around so I didn't receive one *okie truly is sad about this* so I am having to depend on others for the information from the booklet.
Our first class on the Cricut Cruise was with Joy Tracey of OBSESSED WITH SCRAPBOOKING. Joy had a great layout for us to make using Pack Your Bags, and even made it easy by having the kits all ready. In the booklet there was a page that had a picture of the finished layout and then also all the instructions. I think this was great because if you didn't have time to finish you could always refer to the instructions and finish it at a later time. There were papers that had been printed from the Imagine and while we didn't use it right then we did get a short tutorial on what was done to make the layout.
Kristy, Melanie and Tammy were great about going around and helping those who needed it. I let my daughter put my layout together. I was a bit busy talking to Dan Larsen about my reasons for hating the Gypsy. I think he still thinks I have a screw loose for not loving my Gypsy. Evidently Dan loves his Gypsy. He saw a picture of my daughter and I from formal night and said we both looked so friendly and that he was going to put the picture on his Gypsy. Have a mentioned that Dan can be a bit of a smart azz? *okie so loves smart azzes and laughs*. Dan is the one who was in charge of getting most everything ready for the cruise I believe and he did a BEYOND AWESOME job!
Sandie and Deanne worked hard on their layouts and to tell ya the truth I think they just liked to show off and work quietly and quickly. Of course that didn't last beyond the first class after we got even more acquainted.
Sandie was really good about using the Cricut Cutter, which I admired since I had problems and had never used one before. Both were helpful in helping me, Karen and Shiane with learning to use the cutter.
Here is a close up of Deanne working on her layout. I know it is her not only because she sent me the picture to post but also because of the dark purple nail polish.
This picture also shows the great colors in the layout, looking very tropical and cheery! I plan on using pictures of when we first got on the ship and were on deck for the sail away party to put on my layout.
I really wanted to post the finished layout with pictures but since I haven't finished going through and editing pictures I figured I better get a post up before you guys lose interest!Here is the page from the booklet we got. It shows the full layout completed. It is a lot cuter in person! Joy did an awesome job.
Now to make up in the delay of posts I am going to giveaway the Pack Your Bags cartridge! We received one on the cruise and it was a cartridge I already had. I thought it would be nice to give it away on this blog since it was used for the layout.
