|Ahhh - pure heaven. If I could I'd swim in the ocean every day I would - LOVE it!|
|The "Living History" tour about the Mayan culture, ceremonies, cooking and traditions was awesome!|
|My handsome husband and I, heading off to one of the formal dinners. I love wearing dresses and getting gussied up so it was fun to have the opportunity to do it for our dinners - which, by the way, were DELICIOUS.|
|And each gift had it's own unique gift card. This card came with the box shown above - can you guess what was inside? Tons of new Stampin' Up! products! OH MY GOODNESS!!!! I can't wait to play with it all!|

Shelli Gardner, Stampin' Up! Co-founder and CEO has a wonderful blog and she's posted awesome photos from our cruise too (you may even see hubby and I, along with our friends). To view Shelli's blog click HERE.
One of the best things about every Stampin' Up! vacation and event are the card swaps! Demonstrators who participate create a card front using our products and we swap them with each other so that we come back home with tons of great cards and inspiration! To create my card swap I cased & tweaked a card from the new Stampin' Up! catalogue (available June 1st - demonstrators get theirs a month earlier...yet another perk of being a part of the Stampin' Up! community!). The card I created even features a new photopolymer stamp set from our Project Life line called "Day to Day" and cards I cut into strips from the "Everyday Adventure Project Life Card Collection. I used My Digital Studio to print out the cruise ship we were on and the Post Card Stamp for the background.
To show my heartfelt appreciation to all my customers I want to give you a gift!
As I'm sure you know, Stampin' Up! has retired a lot of our products and I've been clearing out my Stampin' Studio - I have a ton of stamps and accessories that need new homes to go to. And, as my regular blog readers know, I'm moving to another province this month and I won't have the space for these products in my new studio - so I want to give some of my retired items to you! Here's what I'm going to do:
The first 10 people who place a min. $50 order (prior to tax and shipping) through my online store will automatically receive one stamp set from my stash.
Please note: these stamps are gently and lovingly USED but still stamp crisp and clear. However, there may also be some stamps in the sets that are brand new, never used.
Plus, the first person who places an online order of $100 or more (prior to tax and shipping) will ALSO receive a bonus gift of Stampin' Up! products too!
And everyone will receive a hand stamped thank you card with their packages, created just for you from me!
This offer ends May 31, 2014 and your gifts will be mailed out to you first week of June!
Remember to check out the new Project Life items! I LOVE them and I know you will too!!!
Well, my friends, I'd best get cracking. I've got to unpack and do laundry from our vacation, finish packing for our move to Nova Scotia (as of next week we'll be officially living on The Sea Bound Coast!) and my 12th Annual Hostess Appreciate Dinner is this weekend and I've got a lot of preparations and cooking to do for it! I am so excited but boy, I've got a LOT to do this week! At least I managed to split my hostas, rhubarb and other favourite plants from my yard yesterday evening, so that I can transplant them at our new house. I'm also fighting a bit of a cold so I'll definately have to find some time for extra sleep somehow! HA! Ohhhh, life is good, isn't it?
Enjoy the day and HAPPY STAMPING!
