My Cruise Review

Our family is going on a cruise before my husband goes to Afghanistan! We are leaving at the end of this month on Royal Caribbean. This will be Kayla's second cruise with us, her first was a Disney Cruise back in 2006. I must say, that it is absolutely true that Royal Caribbean has some of the best food we have had at sea! Carnival was just ok and Disney was nothing to talk about.

The Disney Cruise itself was very nice - we took great pictures and Kayla got a lot face-time with the characters. We felt very safe with her in the kids program with Disney. It was just the food that was a let down.

We are SO excited to be back on Royal Caribbean after 5 years. We are only able to go because my husband is deploying again and Kayla gets a week off of school!

I'm looking forward for great new photos to scrapbook when we get back!

GCD Studios!! Love that paper!

I take great pride in the fact that I LOVE touchable, texture-driven, choc full of choices, yummy patterned paper!

I was just browsing some manufacturer blogs, and I just love then new lines from GCD Studios! I mostly love the fact that they have so many patterns in each group - it's amazing. Just look at one of their lines called "Spring All Over" (yes, Spring is my favorite season!).

You can view their other collections here: GCD Studios - worth a look!

Chatterbox - Love it!

I was glancing through my many scrapbook store email notices of new products, and I could not help but fall in love with this cute, versatile Chatterbox Album! (FYI - The email came from a store called "Stop and Scrap"). I can see so many possibilities with an album like this.. for example, it looks like a GREAT travel journal! Chatterbox continues to impress me with their classic but trendy releases...

My First Post!

I have been scrapbooking since early 2005, and recently I really started focusing on this craft more than before.

I have a complete scrapbook room in my house (it is really the dining room!) - but it's painted RED and I love it!

I wanted to start a blog and share some things about my life and my scrapbooking style - hope you enjoy checking here from time to time!
