Good morning, good afternoon or good evening - whatever time it is where you are I want to say thanks so much for stopping by and joining us this month for our Mediterranean Achievers Blog-Hop. The Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world involved in this hop achieved the Mediterranean Cruise this past May. And, my amazing wife Kylie Bertucci was one of those. So, technically, I am not an 'achiever.' However, I am a Supporting Stampin' Up! Demonstrator makes me a 'co-achiever.'  

Since the trip is now past, its a perfect time for this month the theme;

Mediterranean Cruise Highlights

WOW! Did we have some highlights? We had so many highlights and I want to include them all ..... but first....

I remember clearly the night in 2013 when I was in the study and Kylie walked in and said 'I think I can achieve the Grand Vacation.' I didn't think it was possible - I didn't really even understand what that meant. But, it happened. And now, so far, we have been to Utah, Western Caribbean Cruise, Hawaii and now the Mediterranean Cruise also.

Every time, we make reservations and receive tickets - It is such a surreal experience. I keep imagining that we will get to the airport and there will be hidden cameras pranking us telling us 'Did you really think that you were getting a free holiday?' Its such a weird feeling of going on a holiday without paying for it. We have had an amazing time on these trips.

But, this hop is about this trip - I wanted to upload all of my photos to share with you but there were almost 4,000 between our two phones and one camera (started off two phones and TWO cameras, but lets not talk about that). I made a video of the highlights ...... but it comes with a warning - it is 12 minutes long. So, why don't you hop around to everyone and then come back here and watch it.

The flight over to Barcelona was a whopping total of 19 hours flying time (13 hours to Dubai, 2 hours layover and then 6 hours to Barcelona). Its a VERY long way to go for 7 days so we decided to extend and visit Paris and London. And, one of the activities we did in Paris was a Bike Tour of the Champagne Region. This was the theme of a project that I would like to share with you now.

My Project

If you have visited my blog before, you know I am a fan of Project Life by Stampin' Up! There are some AWESOME new PLxSU products in the 2016/2017 Annual Catalogue that I have been hanging out to use. So, I did! The kit and Accessory Pack that I used was the GOOD VIBES set. Here are some pics of the products I used; 

Good Vibes Card Collection

(100 double-sided cards in 3 sizes: 4" x 6", 4" x 4", 3" x 4")

Good Vibes Project Life Accessory Pack (includes an exclusive stamp set)

And, here are the pages I created (again, apologies for the photos);

Can you see the small stickers on the photos across the top? There are super cool copper letters and there are HEAPS of each letter which is really cool.

Don't you love the colours on the cards that I have used?

Isn't Emerald Envy a COOOOOOOL colour? It really went with the photos. And, my second fave colour at the moment is Night of Navy which features on this card collection.

These pages were created in about 30 minutes and I didn't use anything else aside from the card kit and the accessory pack. This is such a great set! Here are some photos of the layouts;

What do you think of the card collection?
