We're back!!!!!!!

Crop and Cruise
the Caribbean 2010 has sailed and we are excited to share the experience with you!!  It's soooo hard to put the experience of this event into words, but with pictures, maybe you will get even a glimpse into why this truly is the ultimate scrapbooking and photography vacation for Canadians...
This is what greeted us in Texas... blue skies and palm trees!!!  We did an exclusive shopping excursion just for our Crop and Cruise attendees... rented a bus and our first stop was an infamous scrapbook store in Houston called By Design Scrapbook Boutique...

As you can see, there was soooooo much eye candy and goodies for our shopping pleasure!!!  From there we did a quick pit stop at a local mall and then ended up at the Kemah Boardwalk...

Later that evening, we had a surprise special guest for our group!!!!  I saw these stunning beach photos awhile ago and immediately hunted down the photographer...
 Candra George from My Creative Reality 
who just so happens to live in Houston!!!!

 Check out this dress... Candra made it and then sprayed it with tons of Glimmer Mist for this special photo shoot at the beach.... now you see why I was captivated!!!!

So over the months I've been chatting with Candra and although she was supposed to be in Africa at the time of the cruise, she ended up being able to join us in Houston and present some of her best photo tips!!!  It was such a pleasure and special treat... thanks SOOOO much Candra!!!

The next day we boarded our Carnival Conquest cruise ship!!!
The two ends of the boat had swimming pools and entertainment... 
this end was a definitely popular one with a waterslide and jumbo-tron TV that played even at night...
 This end of the ship was adults only... spent some fabulous time in the hot tubs!!

The food was amazing!!!  Here is a picture of my personal "daily weakness"... a hot melting chocolate cake with butter pecan ice cream!!!

Our Crop and Cruise group of scrapbookers were AMAZING!!!  It's interesting how each event has it's own personality of croppers!!  These girls knew how to PARTY!!!!!!
Our first evening on board had our group taking over the dance floor... we were having so much fun that many others joined in!!!

And this is only the beginning!!!!  Be sure to come back throughout the next several days as we share more about our Crop and Cruise scrapbooking, photography, sunset photos, instructors, projects, friendships, port fun and epic photo shots with Canadian Scrapbooker Magazines!!  Just imagine!!!!
