No pressure Ro! If you get inspired and get one, some or all done then that's great. If not no worries.

I'm going on a cruise with Karen in 2 weeks so I have no ideal if I'll get any done this month. But not complaining as I'm super excited about our scrapbooking cruise!!

Ro - this is our first cruise together. When we talked about it at the beginning of the year we were just booking it. But it is actually Oct 14-21. Yes, I have been on a cruise once in 2010 with my husband. In 2010 I went on Carnival and did Jamaica, Grand Cayman and Cozumel. We are going on Royal Caribbean this time and starting in Cozumel and ending in Jamaica. I'm excited.

I know!!! Karen found it when I joked around we should go on a cruise together. Her husband told us to go for it so we had it booked within 5 days! I always thought about it but was afraid I would be torn between scrapping and cruising but neither of us our big party goers so we figure at night and days at sea we can scrap and do cruise stuff during the day!

We have the excursions booked. Cozumel - Mayan Frontier by Horseback and Beach. Grand Cayman - Grand Cayman Hell and Turtle Farm Orientation. Jamaica - Enchanted Gardens, Bird Aviary and Mini Waterfall from Falmouth.

I have several card kits put together for the cruise. I also am just now starting to figure out what I want to take with me to scrap.

Great! We were on the different ones.
You live close to port, can take a lot of staff:) No need to deal with the plane.

I was wondering if anyone else here was active on this day... guess I got an answer anyway. Happy World Card Making Day!

This card is for the favorites (based on a saved Pintrest sketch). The sketch link is as follows:

Circle Spider Card By KatieJo

This is for the bonus... I started with one of the sketches from the sketch challenge and changed it so much that I decided to just use it here instead. Obviously, the sentiment is visible on the front of the card.

I thought I'd put this on here too but don't see it:

Hey! In case you didn't all catch it (I only just noticed it myself), for the month of October, Sb.com is sponsoring a World Card Making challenge with a $50 Gift Certificate prize for 10 winners. Here is the link to the challenge page:
https://www.scrapbook.com/gallery/challenge.html

Click on the "join" button and then when you add your image make sure to click the challenge box (not too far away from the "Allow Embedding Box" to enter that card in the challenge. One rule is that you do have to add 3 product links also. Speaking as a person who has won a few of their challenges before, the winning project doesn't have to be super complicated either... so you might as well enter whatever card follows the rules. You never know what will be hit with the judges. Good luck!

So I left for Texas today!! I decided to drive half way today and the rest tomorrow so I didn't show up on Karen's door step at 3 am! Well my friend that knows the roads in AR said I had to leave at 3 because they are winding roads with deer at times. I think she forgot to take into account that I'm always running late when leaving for a trip. But I was so proud of by self I left the house at 3:20 but had to check tire pressure so I didn't get on road till 3:50. I was sooo proud.....she not so much!! So next time she told me she was going to tell me I had to leave by noon!! No fair I was soooo close!! Any who the hotels were sold out were I planned so I drove into Texarkana and found one. Now to get some sleep but still on a night schedule so even though I'm tired I'm awake. So figure I'll leave love then head for bed.
