Exclusive Die Cut Sheet for our group by Crafty Secrets

I have fabulous news. Sandy Redburn from Crafty Secret has arranged to have an exclusive die cut sheet made for our group.  Sandy and Jessie Hurley are great friends and share the same vintage style in paper products.  The die cuts can be used on cards, scrapbook layouts and personal journals.  Speaking of journals, Sandy has also offered to design an exclusive journal cover that can be used to create your own journal.
I love Crafty Secret products.  The style is country, vintage and shabby chic which incorporates lots of colourful embellishments, lace and images.
Check out the Crafty Secret website for lots of interesting images:
The Crafty Secret blog has so many beautiful cards created by the talented design team, that time will fly by as you delve into a tonne of creative eye candy:

Thank you Sandy for this very generous "just for us" offer.

Copic Goodie Bag Contributor

Can you believe that the fine folks at Copic are contributing to the goodie bags.  In addition, they are donating a fabulous door prize - a 24 piece Sketch Marker Set.  Wow! 
If you haven't used Copics, you will love them.  They are alcohol based markers that don't leave any streaks when you colour in your images.  In addition, you can use the markers to do seamless blending in your colouring, such as shadowing, and shiny hair etc.  The Copic website is really informative.  Here is the link:

Thank you Copic for your support!

Less than two months until sailing

Oh my goodness!
Can you believe we have less than two months until our sailing date.
All preparations are under way so that our guests can have a fabulous time.

Look at our name tags, in the Cherish the Thought colours.  Too funny.
