I've gotten my *crafty* mojo back !!!!

I was so busy with Stampin' Up during Sale-a-bration that I didn't have time to get much crafting done, and on top of not having time...I lost my mojo for awhile.  But it's back....whooohooo!!


We recently returned from a family cruise, and I have a few layouts that I created to share with you.  Now these are not going to wow your socks off...but with over 300 pictures to scrapbook I have to keep the layouts quick and simple. Otherwise I will never finish scrapbooking this trip!!!

This first layout is when we were getting ready to set sail from New Orleans.  It had been a looong day, and we were all ready to get the show on the road....so to speak  ;) 


The patterned paper came in a kit that I bought, the title was cut on the cricut using Cuttin' Up cart and the anchor is from Life's a Beach.  Cardstock is from the Whitewash collection from Coredinations.

See now I warned you, some of these layouts would be kind of blah and simple....

But really their wasn't anything to exciting about tendering into Belize.  And to be very honest....there wasn't anything to exciting in Belize either.  Certainly not a country I will visit ever again...once was plenty!!!

Patterned paper was from a kit, cardstock is all Stampin' Up and embossed with CB folders and then inked with the Stampin' Up white ink pad (best white ink pad on the market...I promise!!!)

________________________________

Last layout for today, and one of my favorites of this bunch.

When we got to Belize City, we quickly learned that there were no public beaches...and not many beaches period, because they have a sea wall up.  So we took a tour and on the tour they took us to  a man-made beach and restaurant called "Old Belize"  We didn't end up going swimming, but instead enjoyed a yummy lunch and a few "red-ritas"....so good!!!

Patterned paper is by K & Company, cardstock is all Stampin' Up...so is the ribbon.  
The title was cut on the Cricut using Opposites attract, and the flowers are from Life's a Beach. 

Thanks for taking a peek today!!  I promise to have lots more to share in the upcoming days.  

Also in case you haven't seen it, Stampin' Up has tons of items on the clearance rack....with prices up to 60% off.  You can shop right from my website:


Thanks again!!

Love the LO's - even if you think they're blah; they really showcase your pictures. LOVE cruising - I so want to go on another one soon.

I think those are beautiful layouts! There's just enough extra embellishing that it doesn't look plain at all. Love how you cuttlebug embossed some of those panels.
