Towel Animals (and some layouts)

Last weekend I got back from my very first cruise....and I'm HOOKED! It was so much fun visited 3 different places and not being stuck in one place for 7 days. The food was AMAZING and I even got to try es-car-go (yup - snails) and conch (you know...the meat from that huge shell)! I love trying new things and going to new places. 

We travelled on the Carnival Pride and visited Grand Turk, Half Moon Cay, and Freeport in the Bahamas. There was SO MUCH fun stuff to do on the cruise ship...favorites were the trivia contests, the piano bar, and the evening shows performed by the ship's dancers and singers. One of the highlights each night was coming back to the room to find a different towel animal...

a seal

a turtle?

a gorilla 
(this one was the took us a few minutes to find it)

an elephant

and a puppy dog

Before leaving for the trip, I had some free time to scrap some layouts. I always post my layouts to Two Peas in a Bucket. After posting, I got some feedback about the glare on my pictures (which I'm completely irritated with but I've tried several different settings on my camera and I can never get rid of it).

 Well, this comment from a fellow scrapper suggested that I take pics outside with natural light. I tried it, and the difference is amazing! So glad someone was willing to give me a suggestion to this annoying problem.
