It has been such a long time since I've managed to post, and I've traveled many miles in that time. I've been to the Caribbean, and the USA catching up with friends and love ones and celebrating a milestone with my husband and children and grandchildren. Cruising is one of my favourite forms of holiday - no cooking, cleaning or driving - so family friendly, and you can see from this photos  on the ship, that we all were having a great time. 

Pre-dinner drinks on the Promenade

 I also managed to catch up with very dear friends in Park City Utah - they are responsible for my Stamping Addiction!! and I thank them in my heart every day. My American Mom, sister and brother-in-law - and they will also be my inspiration to work hard this year with Stampin' Up! because the Dream Vacation next year will be to ...... you guessed it  PARK CITY UTAH! So if you are an Australian resident and you need any Stampin Up products contact me and I'll ship your order right to your home address. All orders help and I'd love to help you receive some of the best quality craft products on the market. 

Kidz Zone - one of the many pool areas on the ship.

We spent a lot of our time at the kids pool on the ship. Perfect facilities for both an 8 month and 4 year old. Close to the ice-cream bar and drinks station, and lovely shallow pools, spas and fun water spouting thingos! On sailing days the only times we moved from here were to go for food or to explore more of the ship!

Coco Cay - Caribbean

It was wonderful traveling as a family as we could all do everything we wanted and Stuie and I got to babysit quite often. This little lady charmed everyone she met and certainly had grandpa wrapped around her little finger.

Tyler feeding the Iguanas at St Martin

 Tyler really enjoyed meeting the reptiles on St Martin. We hired a vehicle that fitted all of us and the driver stopped at this property thinking we'd enjoy feeding the Iguana. They were amazing and came in all sizes from new born tiny to huge, basking in the sunlight weighing down a tree branch hanging over the water. Many of them jumped into the water and swam to greet us when they saw we had bananas!

Immediately after the cruise we spent a few days with the Holdway part of the family at the Animal Kingdom Lodge at Disney World. Disney does things so well. We enjoyed time at Fantasy Land, Epcot and The Animal Kingdom before moving on to Park City.

 I hope you've enjoyed sharing just a little bit of our wonderful Anniversary Holiday. I'll be back very soon with an up-date on the Stampin' Up! Convention and some cards I've been making at classes.

Until then

Stay Crafty and Enjoy Life!
