Sail Away

Several years ago we owned a sail boat. We love to sail! We have lots of great memories spending time with our kids, or even just the two of us going out to watch the sun set on the water. The image of the Sail Away stamp is perfect to capture the memories of our sailing days!

I've created a tutorial for this cut and score card. Enjoy!

We are back from our Alaskan cruise ! What a fantastic trip! We were blessed with phenomenal weather - it only sprinkled for a few minutes one afternoon! I thought I would share just a few of the hundreds of photos we took!

This photo was taken at a state park in Ketchikan, our first port of call. These totom poles are hundreds of years old!
One of the highlights of our cruise (and the place where we probably took the most photos!), was Tracy Arm Fjord. We spent 4 hours in the fjord. Photos do not do this place justice! The blue area in the center of the photo is a glacier. The icebergs and flows along our route "calved" from this glacier. The newer chunks are the bright blue ones you see. Once it is exposed to the air, they turn white.We took a train ride up to the summit in Skagway. This is just one of the many beautiful scenes!
