Elegant Cruise Night; My Creative Sketches

My daughter and I just returned from a Scrapbooking Weekend Retreat and we both accomplished so much!  My goal was to start & complete my cruise album and I did it!

This photo was taken on the Elegent Cruise night.  I don't normally scrapbook 8 1/2 x 11 photos, but I liked this sketch from May challenge sketch at My Creative Sketches and followed it.

I love how the background cardstock matches the photo background.  I made a lot of embellishment clusters in this album and I just love them.  I purchased a Mexico cruise scrapbooking kit while on the cruise and used most of the papers, stickers and pocket page cards for the album.  The life preserver & steering wheel thingy and seagulls were cut from my Cricut.  I used enamel dots and some Heidi Swapp spray inks (gold) to add some fun as well.

I'm having a good laugh on that ridiculous pose my DH & I are in but it's still a decent photo and one full of memories.

Please check out the My Creative Sketches website for the sketch, DT inspirations and join the challenge.
