So I finished around 12 layouts over the course of about 3 days and am so very rejuvinated!!! It sure showed me that I really do need to do this more often... just for me!!

The challenge was to ONLY use supplies we received on our Crop and Cruise Scrapbooking Cruise to the Caribbean!!! Not difficult with so very much given away!!!
And I was only able to broaden into my own stash if absolutely necessary... but even that was restricted to products ONLY from our sponsors... so here goes the first few from our Top Level Sponsors...

This first layout is from our wonderfully generous Making Memories kits... as many of you know, I ended up being terribly sick on the cruise... lost my voice... extreme pain... and found myself asking why?????? This layout was very therapeutic!!
Next my layout from Magenta was very fun to do as it had lots of potential for more masculine layouts.l. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that this company is Canadian and so willing to sponsor us!!

Another featured sponsor was LUXE and boy do they have some fun and lively papers!! I'm a minimalist and really strive to keep the focus on my photos and story, so I didn't use too much on this layout, but am in LOVE with how it turned out!! The colours were PERFECT for my Mexico beach photos!!

Now this last featured sponsor is Tattered Angels and I'm still finishing off my newest layout with their Glimmer Mist, but thought I'd show one of my favourites again from them!!! So much creative play and potential!!
Okay... that's enough for today!! Check back as I upload more and for those of you on the cruise that have all these supplies and kits, I pray my layouts might inspire you to get busy creating as well with your stash!!!

Thanks for the wonderful class on Saturday. I like the much easier for me to learn the ins and outs.....We leave for Vancouver in a couple weeks and I hope to put this knowledge to the test....
