Things NOT To Do Before A Cruise.

#1 Watch Poseidon in the movie theater. LOL.

Yep, 2 weeks before my first cruise around Hawaii - my friend, also going on the cruise, took me to see Poseidon. Insert nightmares here!

I started scrapbooking in 2006, after returning from that once-in-a-lifetime trip and "back then" was more about the memoriabilia than the photos/stories. I cringe every time I look at those pics - 150 total from 10 days in paradise. I imagine that I could snap that many in 10 minutes today, given the chance to go back.

Thus, that album looks a lot different than my pages now. But, I am still working on that album, every summer I make the promise to finish it and every fall comes and I've lost interest.

But, I'm off to a roaring start this year. I already completed 1 double page layout with my new Pack Your Bags cartridge. And last night, completed a second set.

The current challenge at The Paper Variety inspired me to scrap this "horror" movie.

The prize is sweet!!

The left side of the layout, feature sketch #8 from Artful Delight.

Like I said, I saved a lot of memorabilia. This is the People Magazine article comparing the original to the remake. Since then, I've seen both and really enjoyed them {now that I'm back on land}.

The cruise ship is cut from the Pack Your Bags cartridge at 2 1/2". Love the layers!

The second page, features sketch #10 also from Artful Delight.

I saved the newspaper movie listings (lol) and of course my tickets tub. The funniest thing was getting off the plane in Honolulu and seeing the billboard with the movie advertisement! So funny!

Love the mixed alphas in the title (same cut as above, different feature key).

Here are the pages together:

Thanks so much if you stuck with me this long! :) I was going through Blogger withdraw last night wanting to share this and everything else.
