I can’t believe it’s almost a week since we got off our Alaskan Cruise.  It was an amazing trip and I have some highlights to share with you today, with more on Monday.  I must start out by saying I was sick the whole trip, I started with a head cold which developed into flu and me losing my voice, so we don’t have nearly as many pictures as we would normally have, but we did have an amazing time.  Interspaced with naps, early nights and lots of medicine!  I am very pleased to say that today, I am beginning to feel better, finally.

This was our home for the trip, the Explorer of the Seas.  And yes the sky was that colour the whole trip, very unusual for this time of year. Apart from the days with Fog……. but more about those on Monday.

As always we were spoilt on the trip. Stampin’ Up! launched the Autumn-Winter catalogue exclusively to the attendees, we received pillow gifts every night, yep every night we went back to the cabin there were presents on the bed! Each day we won prizes and there were give aways at general session too!  My haul included all the goodies below, a Fleece Jacket, Speakers, Scratch Map, Blanket and an amazing bag, plus so many BRAND new products!  The water bottle is officially Brian’s but I might have snaffled it already!

So I am super excited about the Christmas Bulb punch with TWO matching stamp sets and some super cute Santa’s and Elves, Christmas 2018 is going to be AMAZING!  Zoom in on the picture, tell me what you are most excited about seeing?

And then there is this, I have been waiting for ages for Stampin’ Up! to bring out a pick up tool, and here it is!  The green splodge is putty to pick up sequins etc. The tool has a pierce tool, and a flat spatula to pick up die cuts and a double ended scoring tool, and the putty bit is replaceable so all in all an amazing piece of kit!  Pretty cool paper clips too!
