Hello! How is everyone today? I've got some more photos and stories to share with you of my recent Cruise to the South Pacific and Fiji. So, a bit of a warning - this post will be photo heavy but if you are just here for my card, just keep on scrollin' to the end ;)
First I would like to share the card that I just made which was inspired by the challenges over at Less Is More and ShowCASe your Style. The card is a little tribute to my friends and family who came on the trip with me.
Here is my card
all stamps and dies are from Whimsy Stamps.
I used the sketch at
and the colour theme at Less is More - predominately black
My card really sums up the trip and cannot wait to plan the next one.
Ok, onto the photos.
This was a special day for us Cruise Chicks. My mum had organised with the Fijian Embassy in Australia for us to visit a village which was for single mothers and their children. Mum organised all us girls to bring stuff with us that could be donated - toys, clothes etc.
So, here are the photos from that visit. It was simply amazing (just like my mum) and they made beautiful garlands for us to wear, a yummy lunch and sang and danced for us.
|Our transport to the village. Yep, hop in the back and hold on for your life lol|
|The kiddies waiting patiently for their presents|
|Dancing, smiling and having fun :)|
|My sister and mum handing out goodies|
|Playing soccer with the kids. They loved the new balls, bats and toys that mum brought for them|
After we spent a number of hours in the village, we went back to town and did a bit of sightseeing. Then it was back to the ship. Next stop Suva.
Today we hopped off the ship and had photos with our 'Bulla Men' as we called them. Then organised a tour to see the city and visit the Colo-I-Suva Forest Park to see the rainforest and swimming hole/waterfall
|yep, me with the 'Bulla Men' :)|
|Our tour guide was very happy to have photos taken (my idiot sister photo bombed it, though lol)|
|walking down, down, down to get to the water|
|Wasn't as big as we thought but it was beautiful. There was a young lad who went swinging off a rope into the water doing all sorts of acrobatics. Crazy!|
|Peta-Marie had a go. There she is letting go of the rope. Even my mum had a go which scared the crappa out of me....|
Ok! There is part 2 done and dusted. More photos will come and maybe even some incriminating ones... if you are lucky ;)
Thanks so much for looking xx
