last year when all the excitement about the CRICUT CRUISE went viral, i went frothing at the mouth with envy.  i said to myself then, 'i gotta go one of these if it's the last thing i do!' i'm pretty sure it won't be the 'last', but when i jokingly asked my husband if he cared if i did this, and his reply was,''i don't care'', my teeth almost fell out! (no i don't have false teeth. they're the real mccoy). 

thinking... ok, who wants to do this with me?  i posted the question on facebook. 'is there anyone who would like to share a cabin with me?' that generated a few 'wish i coulds' from several gals. i even got a couple bites!  one almost was a sealed deal til she found out we would be returning on easter.  that was a no-no because her family needed her home, understandably!  then a gal who just lived in a neighboring town, who i hired to cater for my dil's wedding shower said her hubby gave her the 'thumbs up' to go.  we were both so excited we even made out our lists of stuff to pack.  we had alot of fun drinking homemade wine and giggling like a couple of school girls going on their first prom.  reservations were made, plane tickets were bought, insurances paid for and planning went in full swing.  then..........my friend had a personal tragedy in her family.  after a few days of trying to decide what was the best thing to do, we chose to cancel the plans. at least 'her' plans.  i said to my husband, i'm going but i don't want to go alone. ' well'...he says, 'i may as well go now!'  WELL YA!  now he isn't a scrapbooker, he's a farmer!  yup. i'm taking my farmer boy with me and i could'nt be happer!  a new plane ticket was bought (luckily the same flight) names were changed on the cruise reservations and we even made an upgrade from an inside stateroom, to a balcony.  this was largely in part so he has a place of his own while i'm in those CRICUT classes!

with this said, i wanted to make a layout of just the picture of the boat.  there will be more to come as i make updates to the 'happenings'.  but for now, this is just the beginning.  stay tuned for further updates and announcements.

that's it for today!  i hope you enjoyed my babblings.  feel free to leave a comment and become a follower.  i love reading comments!

Love the layout! Saw your comment on my blog and I can't wait to go either! Our two girls will spend a week with grandparents that happen to live in Texas now and we get almost a 2nd honeymoon! :) What cartridge did you use for the layout? Who knows, maybe we're next to each other as we have a balcony too! :)
