I'm back from Crop and Cruise the Caribbean!!!!

WOW!!!! WOW!!!! WOW!!!! This is exactly the type of view I always envision when I think of the Caribbean!!! Luscious green Palm trees, pure white sand, azure blue waters and clear blue skies... the kind of photos you see in travel magazines... and this one is MINE!!!!!! It still seems so surreal!!!
And here's the proof that I was actually there!!! My toes against the ocean!!!!! So what if my "tropical drink of choice" was not contained in a pineapple with an umbrella, but rather a bottle of Buckleys!!!!! Who needs to be able to talk to enjoy the view!!!! Actually I needed to talk A LOT doing all my photography teaching... a HUGE thanks to all of you for your patience with me and my lack of voice!! Speaking of photography teaching....
Here is the one "blue speedo" photo that I felt wouldn't cause anyone serious trauma while viewing... may it continue as a reminder to "watch for blue speedos in the background before pressing the shutter"!!! This one isn't near as "tramautic" as many of the ones I know you ladies captured... and no, I don't need to see them ALL!!!! Just the ones I asked you to send me :)So one of my favourite things in life is meeting new people and the 115 that were part of our group were ALL amazing!!!! I always say scrapbookers are some of the best people on this earth to work with!! And my team of ladies were especially spectacular!!! We had way too much fun together and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE when that joy and "craziness" is captured within photos!! This is what scrapbooking is all about!!!!!!And a HUGE extra thanks to my absolutely amazing, wonderful, loving, supportive family!!! I am so blessed to have each one in my life!!This young lady is going to grow up and conquer the world with her smile, energy and genuine heart for people!! And my best little buddy is surely going to follow in his uncle Mark's footsteps and brainstorm wonderful new gadgets and ways to change the world... I can just hear the gears going in both their minds!!And last, but not least, my ROCK!!! My biggest chearleader in life who keeps me grounded and focussed while joining in on my crazy ideas with me!!! I couldn't do it without this man!!So... hundreds more photos to still go through, but this is a start!! I have a few more on the Crop and Cruise blog and see that everyone's uploading to their facebook pages too!!!! Be sure to join in the fun and share those photos!!

I don't think there'll be any blue speedo's walking around Saskatoon next week but I am really looking forward to your class.
