We passed this beautiful lighthouse while we were whale watching in Juneau, and thought it looked lovely with the backdrop of the mountains and the trees. I used Carole Harden's Stitched Trio Quick Click for this quick and easy layout. Elements are from Erica Belton's Autumn Splendor Value Collection and Carole Harden's A Winter Walk Page kit (oak leaves and bird). Background papers are from Lauren Bavin's Dragonflys Dance Value Collection and her Dresden Blues Value Collection.

We had a great time on our balcony on the Star Princess. So saw so many exciting things there while on our week long cruise (9/13 -20/09), and talked to our "neighbors", Florine and Jimmy while looking at all the gorgeous scenery. This layout was created with At the Beach Groupies, Set 1 by Meryl Bartho, Just Cruising Value Collection, by Meryl Bartho, Stitched with Love Slightly Untidy also by Meryl Bartho, and Wordee Deluxe Word Art Set 4 by Marcee Duggar.
This was definitely a magical moment when the Star Princess met the Golden Princess in Tracy Arm Fjord (near Juneau, AK). There was a total of about 5,000 people cheering, applauding, and snapping pictures as the two ships passed. We were near the Twin Sawyer glaciers when the two ships met, which made it an even more spectacular moment. This page was created with the Just Cruising Value Collection by Meryl Bartho and the At the Beach groupies Set 1, also by Meryl Bartho.

While on our Alaska Cruise, we stopped at the Port of Ketchikan. We visited the Alaska Rainforest Sanctuary, and had hoped to see a black bear, since the guides had been spotting them on most of the tours. Unfortunately, we did not see a bear, but saw huge opening in some of the trees, where the bears hibernated. We also saw reindeer, salmon swimming upstream, and saw some seals playing in the water. Value collection used is Just Cruising by Meryl Bartho, and also used At the Beach Set 1 groupies by Meryl Bartho.

Granddaughter, Sydney, with the new hat her mom bought. She didn't like the hat at all, but obliged her mom when Mom asked for a couple of photos. Page kit used is Free to Be by Heidi Kuester. Also used Circle It In Quick Click, which was free in the Sept.2011 Digital Scrapbook Place newsletter.
