Just a note to say that due to the fact that lots of
Stampin’ Up colors are retiring on June 30th, they are selling
fast! There are a few already sold out!
The following items are no longer
available to order. Our inventory has been depleted, and we are unable to order
101563: Sage Shadow card stock (8-1/2"
102837: Only Orange card stock (8-1/2" x
107079: Sage Shadow card stock (12" x 12")
107101: Close to Cocoa card stock (12" x
119833: Old Olive Polka-Dot 6" x 6" Designer printed album
I would recommend making sure that you have a bottle of ink
refill for each stamp pad you own, as well as loads of cardstock for those
colors. You can see my post here
for more info on the retiring colors, and new Color Collections coming!
Have a great day!

We rode 7 zip-lines thru the treetops, from one platform to another. There was even a little monkey down on the ground watching all the people trying to act like monkeys!
Here we are on Day 2, in St. Lucia, taking a small boat tour around the island.
We stopped to see some waterfalls, botanical gardens, and a volcano area, where there were black-mud springs (and yes, people were bathing in them!).
Next stop: Antigua (our ship is on the left)
where we spent the day at a luxury beach....
And oh, man, it was HOT here! It was like, 41 degrees! We were just trying to stay in the shade all day...but the water was amazing!
Our last excursion was on the island of St. Maarten, and we took a scooter tour around the island in these cute little 3-wheel mini-cars. We ended up at the beach....my favorite place!
Come back tomorrow for my next few pics....

Continuing on with our Stampin' Up cruise pics, here we are in the dining room onboard Royal Carribean's ship, enjoying our first (of many) 5 course meal!
And here's our amazing stateroom, complete with a couch, and an outside balcony.
View from our balcony...
Huge shopping "mall" area inside the ship....
I will share some of our fun excursions tomorrow....

I had such a great time on the Stampin' Up Cruise, and I want to share a few pics with you! It is so unbelievable to me that for FIVE years in a row I have earned an all-expenses paid trip from Stampin' Up. How many companies pay for their employees to go on a free trip, with their spouse?! Crazy! Anyway, I am blessed to "work" for a wonderful company who provides this opportunity. Did you know that if you held ONE workshop a week, you could most likely earn a free trip too? Working one day a week! On top of the income! Making cards and scrapbook pages! If this blows your mind, like it does mine, contact me to get started!
Back to the cruise...here we are in Puerto Rico on Day 1, before we got on the ship, going to check out an old fort with our friends, Kari and Tom (http://thestampingrounds.typepad.com ), who also earned the amazing trip.
This was so cool, being inside the tunnels, but my chlostrophobia was starting to kick in...
After the fort we walked thru some of the city of San Juan, Puerto Rico, and had a great day before heading to the ship.
Loved these steep cobblestone streets! And it was hot, real hot!

Hi everyone! I am back from the Stampin' Up Cruise, and over the coming week or so, I will be sharing some pics from my fabulous trip!
For now, here's a cute Mother's Day idea using the Top Note Die from Stampin' Up, as well as the gorgeous Cottage Wall designer paper set.
I added a mini lunch bag (from the dollar store) for the inside of the purse, and topped it with a Scallop Circle, with a little zelcro to close it.

Happy Mother's Day everyone!
