one of the gifts...

that our cruisers got was this fun black box from Cosmo Cricket...

They also donated a complete set of 12 x 12 papers, cool journaling cards...
AND...
the coordinating stickers too...

so...each cruiser got the whole shebang!
WOW!!

Since we had a day off...everyone had a special surprise project and plenty of "studio @ sea" space to play and enjoy the day...

Here's the naked box...


I got mine before the cruise & had a sample made to show...

I used my flower stamp again...
I like it as a flower, but...
it's PERFECT for a pumpkin!


Once it was cut out & inked, I overstamped it with polka dots.

The grungeboard vine was cut with a Sizzix die and stamped with this screen stamp.

The small pumpkin, bat & cute cat are from tim's seasonal grungeboard set.
The bat & cat are painted with black crackle paint.

Just an fyi...I see that there is a SALE on the crackle paints...
just incase you happen to NEEEEEEEEED any...
I'm just saying...
SALES are good!

"BOO" is Maya Road Noah chipboard alphas...they are mini & oh SOOO cute! For me...the smaller...the better...

I'd LOVE to wallpaper a bathroom in this AWESOME paper...
Hello...Cosmo Cricket???
Can I buy a million sheets??




And a closer look...
"pumpkins for sale" was computer generated...



Here's the inside...
MORE awesome papers from Cosmo Cricket...

The price is $4.90 each...
Get it???


LOTS of you asked for more photos and project photos...
I think I forgot to take some before the cruise...

but...I'll do that just as soon as Mr Fed-Ex delivers my cruise boxes.
It should be today!!
YIPPEE!

Come back on Monday...
I'll be waiting for you...

Have a GREAT weekend & take time to...
make art!
