We saw some beautiful sunsets on the cruise - I don't think I have been in the middle of the ocean with no land in sight since I was in grade 7!
When we arrived at Cannes, France there was no cruise terminal (and see, Gold Coast, we managed OK without it!) We were taken to shore on tenders - the only time you want to find yourself in a lifeboat! Here is our ship from the shore. The water was an amazing colour. I heard it described as 'slurpy blue' which was pretty accurate.
Who has seen To Catch a Thief? We loved seeing these set ups of seats along the beachfront.
The streets of Cannes were so pretty and we were there not long after the film festival! This looks surprisingly calm but it was pretty busy.
And who has seen this Hotel in movies?
And I found someone famous!! Famous in my Stampin' Up! world at least! This is Mary Fish. She is a very successful demonstrator in the U.S. She was on the ship but I didn't run into her there - I ran into her in the main street of Cannes. I had just eaten a lemon crepe which dripped out of its wrapper and down the leg of my pants. I was feeling daggy before this incident - everyone in Cannes was so nicely dressed! Mary was oh so elegant too and graciously agreed to a photo. I hope she didn't notice my pants! Mary was the first blog I fell in love with. Her stamping style is unique. My husband laughs that I have to 'check in with Mary' every day. You can find her blog HERE
And just this past weekend, I held a launch for the new Stampin' Up! catalogue!
I love these events and the chance to show my customers new products and techniques. We combined the catalogue launch with Australia's Biggest Morning/Afternoon Tea.
Sending some love....anyone who has been to any of my events would know Betty-Lou. She has been in hospital so we wrote messages of support for her and I assembled them into a banner.
My sister sewed SU! fabric into these beoootiful zippered pouches which I offered as an incentive for anyone who placed an order or joined up.
As always, we had a raffle of lovely 'stuff' donated by Stampin' Up!
And a display of samples using the new products.
And Lucky Door Prizes! It's fun dressing these up.
In all we did five make and takes. This was a simple one using the Jar of Love stamp set and framelits and Copper Embossing Folder.
Phew! How was that for an update?
