a few more vacation pages

 long way from finished none the less plugging along slowly but surely

used on slipper page paper from my stash.  the slipper was cut from vellum and i used a gold heart as an buckle but that doesn't show up in this pic.  the rest are all papers from ctmh. i've left room to go back and JOURNAL.  now i think that about will cover the ship pic  now i'll move on to the ports. or maybe go back and do the prep stuff like  getting the reservation  and then the entire cruise schedule and excursions, the passport,  the birth certificate, and the cards i made to send to dawn and critter, the christmas envie with cruise $$ in it   etc.  all that has to be incorporated yet too.   this is gonna be a L O N G project.  oops  some of these are in the  smilebox on the side so they are dups   sorry
