Canada Cruise 2010: Carnival Glory
This spread showcases our cruise ship – the Carnival Glory. I chose Carnival cruise lines for two reasons – the first was that they were the cheapest and because this was our first cruise I didn’t want to go to crazy. The second was that I discovered that it is one of the best cruise lines for families and kids. In fact – there were more children passengers than adult passengers on this cruise! That might scare some people away – but it was perfect for my son who made several friends. I was able to escape to the adults only parts of the ship and rest.
I had a lot of fun with this page. The right hand side has a large photograph of the ship that I got as part of the Behind the Scenes Tour (but more about that on another page). Notice that it came with a black border. In order to tie the elements on the left hand page into this design you will notice that I bordered my own picture of the Glory in black, as well as our key cards. Notice that I wasn’t afraid to cut off the top corner of my own picture to help everything fit onto the page.
I also took opportunity on this page to put in a side view of the ship and marked where our cabin was. These little fold-able maps were what kept me from getting lost on the ship! But it also serves as a great piece of ephemera that I personalized for this page. I also used some of the notepaper in our cabin to serve as my journaling paper.
Ephemera Tip: While on a cruise don’t be afraid to collect all kinds of free souvenirs that will come in handy when you create your scrapbook – you will see many over the next few weeks as we discover our Canada Cruise.
