Hello there! I'm finally back, after a long absence, I know! I've been extremely busy ever since the end of Sale-a-bration in March, culminating in the Stampin' Up! Alaskan Cruise at the end of May! Now that the trip is over (sigh) and June is here, I want to get back to my little ol' blog and all of you!
To start off, here's a pic of me & my daughter, Kimberly, on our zip-line RAINFOREST CANOPY excursion!
Those of you who know me even slightly, know I am very cold-natured, which made me a little worried about this adventure. I even forgot to pack a suitable coat to zip-line in, I guess I was just thinking of staying on the ship the whole time! But after a visit to one of the ship's many shops, I was oufitted in a cozy jacket, hat & gloves, which is why my helmet looks so dorkily perched on top of my head!
We had a blast, though, zipping on 7 lines 135 feet above the ground, landing on platforms that had NO RAILS! We also traversed 3 suspension bridges, and saw a bald eagle! Who would have ever thought there woud be a rainforest in Alaska? Apparently temperature has nothing to do with it, it's the amount of rain they get that makes it rainforest-y! In case you are concerned about the DANGER factor here, as you can see our entire body is harnessed, and the harness was attached at all times to strong cables! Even if you did lose your grip or fall the worst you would do would be dangle! lol!
I can't leave you today without showing you one card! I took a picture of this one in the Stampin' Up! Hospitality Room on the ship. It uses the Summer Mini set, Hello Blossoms, and a technique called Faux Suede! I hope to give you a little tutorial on this one soon!
Oh, and I can't forget to give you the Retiring Lists that posted on the Stampin' Up! Website today, now can I?
