As you already know (mostly because I’ve been talking about it non-stop for the past couple of weeks), I was honored and delighted to spend a week on a Caribbean cruise with top Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from all over the world. What an incredible vacation! Today I’m sharing pictures from this epic adventure.
That ship! You’ll never comprehend the magnitude and magnificence of this ship is unless you see it with your own eyes. This things is a giant. I watched the video tour on the Royal Caribbean site, but I still wasn’t prepared for the real thing. Here are some pictures of this incredible ship I called home for a week:
The People. As you can see, the ship is amazing! The gardens and neighborhoods were vast and beautiful. The facilities were fantastic. The food was absolutely incredible. In the end, though, it was the people who made the experience so perfect. Here are some quick photos of some of the amazing people I hung out with on this trip:
Leonie Schroder (Australia) and Mary Fish (USA): Janet Wakeland (USA): Patty Bennett (USA): Dawn Griffith (USA):
Our Excursion in Cozumel. At our stops in Haiti and Jamaica, our group just explored the islands. We hung out on the beach and explored the shops. In Cozumel, though, a group of us went on a culinary excursion and made authentic Mexican fare with a Cozumel chef. We had SO MUCH fun with Josephina: Again, what a wonderful trip we all had! I enjoyed every minute of it – the ship, the food, the people. On Friday night, I won the “Finish the Lyrics” competition on board the ship. I don’t want to mis-state the value of this award, but it was probably the greatest thing to happen to anyone in all of the world since the beginning of time. I know songs and can sing any of them. Here’s a quick photo immediately after my win, along with a photo that was included in Shelli Gardner’s personal blog on Monday (www.soshelli.com) that shows how important this honor is:
Thanks for listening to me go on and on about my trip experience. This was my first incentive trip with Stampin’ Up! – I earned it during my first year as a demonstrator. Next year, I’ll be headed to Hawaii, and I can hardly wait for the experience.
Thanks for stopping by today!

Awesome New Photopolymer Stamp Set. Stampin’ Up! announced a brand new photopolymer stamp set yesterday, and this is one you’ll want to check out. Endless Birthday Wishes is filled with lots of great sentiments, and I’m sure it will be as popular as Endless Wishes that was released (and quickly sold out) last Fall.
