Yes, it was there all right - a scrapbooking workshop scheduled for 10:30 am! Of course, this was our anniversary cruise and I was pretty sure Robbie wasn't interested in the workshop, but when I mentioned there was a scrapbooking workshop he immediately said I should go. The workshop took place in one section of the lounge on Deck 14, so Robbie simply found a seat near the windows in another section and read a book on his Kindle while I attended the workshop. (I do so love that man!)
I wasn't sure what to expect as one of the cruise personnel began carrying in a couple of boxes of supplies. I was pleasantly surprised to find that a Scrapbooking Kit especially created for Royal Caribbean was provided with the workshop.
As it turned out, there were a total of three Scrapbooking Workshops during the seven-day cruise, so I came home with three kits . . .
and five partially completed layouts.
The workshop was designed so that each participant created a 12x12 layout with the kit. Since I finished my layout early during the last two workshops, I created an extra 8 1/2 x 11 layout with some leftover bits & pieces. During the final workshop, we were using a paper crimper and for my smaller layout, I ran a piece of the clear packaging through the crimper and attached it to my page to add some shimmer. (Can you see it in the FUN layout above?). The workshop leader was so impressed, she took my layout around to show all the other participants! (Does that make me the teacher's pet?)
patiently anxiously awaiting a large order of prints from Shutterfly so that I can complete these layouts as I start on a scrapbook about our cruise. So, if you've been wondering whether or not you'll get to see some of the 800+ photos we took as we cruised the Western Caribben, you can rest easy . . . lots of layouts and photos coming soon!
