I did. It's like Publishers Clearing House "people really do win".

I entered Royal Caribbean's Facebook "The Sea Is Calling" sweepstakes back in February and was one of 6 weekly winners of a 7-night caribbean cruise for 2. I didn't believe it at first but we are SO excited!

Can you all believe how close this trip is getting? It is crazy. Last year, I planned and planned for our December trip. Nearly 200 pages went into that PTR. This PTR... is a sad little PTR. I have barely noted anything nor have I shared my day to day like I did on last years PTR. I am sorry... I feel like I now am such a bad diser.

However, maybe we can bump up the page total a bit with some random stuff... like my itinerary book. I neglected to make a countdown calendar... so you didn't all miss that.

But here is the book.. just a 4 x6 "album". I figured the size would work well to fit inside a purse.



It actually looks a bit cuter IRL. The background is a shimmery silver. When I try and take a pic though with the flash it just becomes a reflective surface.

Here is an example of the pages. (sorry, I know you might have to turn your head a bit....)


Basically, the first two pages are the confirmation numbers followed by each day's plans. Some days are very full and don't take up much room between the two sides...while others take up the entire space.

I may have to resort to plans sans pics... just to get the rest of my plans into this PTR... we will see though.

Just checking in to say Hi! and Yeah that your trip is so close. Here's the way I look at it - sometimes you are more prepared for a trip than at other times. It really doesn't matter. You are still going to have a fantastic time!

You may not have made a countdown calendar but I am LOVING your itinerary book!! Now I feel like such a slacker. I just bought color coded index cards to put my stuff on. I may have to see about making us a cute little book I could slip our index cards into. Great idea!

Well, thank you. This was by far the easiest one I have ever done. The albums already had the shimmery silver paper. I just printed out my itineraries and glued them to 4x6 cards. Then barely decorated the cover.

Here is what december's looked like.



It even had tabs that divided the days.


The time before that I did laminated sheets.

Since I liked both the laminated sheets and having a book with the entire trips plans available, I combined those two ideas to do this years....
