Scrapboutique Cyber Crop

Last weekend we had a CC over at's the first one I have been able to join in for months! On the Friday night we a speed scrapping challenge...oh my!!! Had only an hour to do it and I'm not known for my speed at this craft! Oh damn it's out on the other computer!! I'll upload at a later time.

Next we had an Inspiration challenge and to use this picture.

Finally there was the Pink challenge. Had to use at least 5 different elements such as P/P, C/S, stickers,alphas, paint/misting, ribbon, fabric, flowers and embroidery thread. I think I managed to use 10 on my layout which I actually won. Don't you love the little dresses? I think they are so cute!

Monthly Challenges...

at Scrapboutique. This one is to use products form our stash, use at least 3 P/Ps and this sketch. I think I used 5 or 6 papers and oops!! I forgot to mention which ones I used when I uploaded!!

For the next one we had to use a "holiday" photo.

Some Photos of my Trip.....

to Canada, Alaska and US. Have finally uploaded these onto my computer and thought I'd share a few each day to give an overview of my fantastic trip.

This is the Cruise Ship Terminal in Vancouver.
The Celebrity Century

Our cabin with a balcony. Was very cold any time we decided to go out there!!
Gayl and I on the sled dog wagon. Poor dogs were filthy dirty and smelly!
This is me cuddling one of the husky puppies. Was so cute and whimpered the whole time I was holding it.
Me at dinner one night on the ship. 500 to a sitting and there were two sittings so a lot of mouths to feed. Lighting wasn't very good in this.
An Alaskan King Crab. We had some of one of these for lunch one day. Hot dipped in melted butter, very yummy and delicious!!!
An Alaskan Snow crab.
I went out on this boat that was in the first episode of The Deadliest Catch. The owner decided to turn it into a tourist venture and it was a great tour.
Willadd some more photos tomorrow. I took over 2000 so have to pick just a few.
