St Lucia - Sightseeing

For Scrapbook Challenges Sketch 486, I pulled out the last of my St Lucia pictures.  I have scrapped SO many of those pictures but I just don't want to leave any out! Here is Sketch 486.  Love the digital strips.  It think they worked great.

Carnival Valor

We really enjoyed our cruise on the Valor.  Sometimes you hear that Carnival is the party ship, with the impression that it is low class.  Well, I either like low class or that impression is wrong:)  Our family really enjoyed the cruise and we are not big party people.  I'm sure there are higher class cruises, but for the price, we were super happy.

This layout shows the ship and where are rooms were.

Let's Scrap is having a great double layout sketch challenge this month.  I used their sketch for the basis of my layout.

St Kitts - Waters

Did I mention that St Kitts has beautiful waters?  We saw so many different water areas on our island tour (Royston Tours - AWESOME).  I want to go back and explore more! This layout just shows some of the different waters!

Barrichina - Home of the Pina Colada

During our "after the cruise" tour of Old San Juan, we stopped by Barrichina, the Home of THE pina colada.  They even give out free pina coladas if you eat there:)

I say this layout on pinterest and loved it so I recreated it and made it a double layout.

All the papers used allowed me to enter challenge 106 at The Paper Girls challenge blog. This challenge was to "use your scraps".  I definitely did that with this layout!

St Kitts - Land of Wonder

Our tour of the island of St Kitts was a great tour.  We saw so many things and so many aspects of St Kitts, from the beautiful water to the historic fort to the ruins of sugar plantations.  This layout shows some of the things at one of the sugar plantations/ rum distilleries.

The title is from the June challenge at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge. That challenge requires you to use the word Wonder or Wonderful in a title or journaling.  Go check it out.

St Thomas - Where the Wild Things are

On St Thomas, we feed lunch to the many iguanas around.  Some seagulls also wanted some action so they came flying over for their share!

Challenge 105 at The Paper Girls Challenge Blog is to scrap about The Great Outdoors.  I think feeding Iguanas on the beach counts:)
