I have seen something similiar to this done at a Stampin' Up! party, but this goes above what I've seen! A LOT of labor of love went into these!


I just want to second my thanks - this was one of my favorite gifts I have shown it to so many folks and they have been so amazed that someone on a cruise gave that to us! It will truly be treasured for years to come!

And Kimberly, thank you for sharing how you did that highlighter. I fell in love with it the minute I saw it and had no idea how you had done it....now I may have to borrow that idea for future cruises

Come on El, and WuvTIgger, a sneak peek won't hurt!!!
That would require me to take a pix. Then download it. Then learn to post it on the boards. Naaaw, that's too much learning this close to the cruise.

Talking But, someone who is more talented on our cruise can post pix I'm sure

I wondered who did the beaded highlighter and sticky note pad! Maybe I or one of the kids pulled off a tag you had put on it before I noticed. I really enjoyed both and used the highlighter throughout the cruise. Still using it!

That scrapbook was just awesome - that was a lot of work. It would take me a year to put something like that together for so many people - there were over 50 of us doing the FE!

I enjoyed all the gifts and it was an excellent mix of handmade and store bought things. I swear my 6 year old's favorite toy the whole cruise were some plastic vampire teeth that someone put in one of the bags - LOL!

Thanks for posting the pics and for the wonderful complements. I am glad they were apreciated.

Yeah it will be a while before I make another file folder album for anything. But I have over 300 pictures to scrapbook so the paper and ribbon is still all over my craft room

It was worth all the hours worth of work my kids loved getting presents all week long.

I've also made a homemade for our FE exchange, but you'll have to wait for a pic. We leave in two weeks!

Had to wait until our return but I custom made water bottles with each person's name and the sailing date. The hardest part was getting on 3 small cases of water. I should post this is the thread of "why do you have to bring water onboard, can't you drink the ship's water".

As far as our next cruise, I know I am going to up the anti on what I bring as gifts. I felt like I brought little piddly stuff!
I saved that one because I thought they were so unique - here's the link http://www.disboards.com/showthread....1774643&page=6 (it's Post#83).

They are beautiful!!

I designed & ordered custom luggage tags as one of the gifts I gave for our FE's. It was a lot of fun. I found this pic somewhere online (orig. in color) and I turned it to B & W and then added Mickey in his Captains uniform. Several of us were doing back-to-back cruises but there were also a couple of families that were only doing the 4 n cruise...so I customized the dates:





I also bought a box of business card magnets at Staples and designed & printed frig magnets for our DIS group. (It's REALLY hard to find, but I put a Hidden Mickey in it too!)





I don't have pics of the other gifts I got, but there was some really cool stuff. Others in our group gave lanyards, ordered custom labeled candy bars, custom printed M & M's, custom notepads...someone else also made frig magnets...ummm let's see...someone painted picture frames... We got SO many cool gifts!
