Whew!!! Not the most inspiring title but hey, it's accurate, lol!! So sorry I never made it back to post yesterday, but between dentist, doctor, and grocery store appts, the day went by so fast!!! I am still fighting jet lag as well - it is always harder for me coming back to the East Coast from the West Coast, and this time it has really gotten to me! But, it was all worth it!! So, first things first!! Yep, I did it - a new project, whoohooo!! I have a friend who really wanted a DVD Tin notebook holder so I made her one!! I did use retired DP and ribbon (it's her favorite) but everything else is current. Isn't it cute??!! She is getting it this morning when I meet her for coffee, so I feel safe showing it to you now! Here is the inside - there are two pockets on the left hand side to store whatever she wants, and on the right is a pad of paper for her notes as well as a pen with matching dp. I am excited about giving it to her! I know she really wants one and it will be so nice to be able to make here smile! She is a really nice lady - I met her through being a Girl Scout leader and she has really helped me out quite a bit since I have lived here so now it is nice to be able to do something for her!

Just leave me a comment here on this post - yep, that's it!! But hey, I would LOVE it if you left me a yummy recipe to share - AND I will even give you and extra chance if you do! And, last but not least, here are some more pics of my fabulous scrapbook cruise. I decided that I better post some pics of me actually scrapbooking so you believe me when I say I actually DID get some pages done - LOL! So, this first pic is Vicki and I in the scrap room with all of our stash we packed along with us! Let me tell you, packing for a trip like this is not easy! And, this second pic is me working on an actual layout - I know, can you believe it?*wink* I will be sharing actual pics of my finished layouts later on this week. See, I did scrapbook! However, I cannot lie, I did LOTS of other things as well - and here are a few of them! This pic is me swimming in the ocean in Nassau - the water was a bit choppy from the storm the day before and there were several times I ended up on my butt rather than my feet, lol! But, it was a great time, I love swimming in the ocean! This next pic is me cutting a rug on the ship doing the Electric Slide - Vicki would not do it with me, but she had no problems taking pics of ME dancing in front of hundreds of strangers, lol!! I had lots of fun though, I love to dance and hey, I will never see those people again, right?! After all that dancing and fighting the waves, I needed some downtime, and I got plenty of it when we stopped at the private island belonging to Royal Caribbean called Cocoa Cay. Here I am enjoying the more tranquil waters floating around on my raft - aaaaahhh, it was fabulous! Although, getting up on the raft was quite comical to watch and although Vicki DID take pics, you don't get to see them - heehee! But, once I was up on there, it was pure joy to float around enjoying the warm breezes and the blue skies. This last picture shows me enjoying one of the many hammocks scattered all around the island. It was awesome, I had a refreshing drink in my hand(cola), soft breezes, and a good book - it was pure heaven! Vicki and I both laid in hammocks for about two hours before the sun had shifted so much we were roasting and then decided we needed to hit the waters with our beach mat again - tough life, huh?!!! It was wonderful, and I am ready to go again - next year for sure! Thanks for indulging me and listening to me ramble on - I hope you at least enjoy seeing some of the pics!
