There’s A Floating Bridge in Curacao!


Hi Everyone!  Thanks so much for stopping by today!

I have another layout from our April cruise vacation.  This layout is from the CTMH Surf's Up Workshop_on_the_go!  This is the additional layout instruction that you find online here!  After completing the layout which comes in the kit, this additional layout as well, I still had enough product to make 5 A2 cards 4.25x5.5  The only thing I had left was 1 12x12 sheet that I can use on another layout.  I love these kits because you get some great crafting mileage but you don't receive so much stuff that you begin to tire of working with it and don't forget, in every workshop you get a full sized acrylic stamp set to use in future projects!  Highly recommend this one!  BTW, the 'caribbean cruise', the sun with palm tree and the glittered sun actually came from a Carnival Scrapbooking at Sea kit, that you can only purchase while aboard your ship, in the photo shop.

There’s A Floating Bridge in Curacao!
There is so much uniqueness in Curacao and we just loved the time we spent there!  Sint Ana Bay separates the Rif Fort and Water Fort in the town of Willemstad, Curacao. It would take boat after boat to transport all of the citizens as well as tourists Willemstad sees in a day. To allow easy access for those wishing to cross the bay and for ships going up and down the harbour, they built this pontoon bridge called the Queen Emma Bridge, known by the locals as ‘Swinging Old Lady’.  It is so much fun to watch the bridge move in and out of place, and also fun to stand on the bridge to get a great view of the colorful buildings lining both sides of the bay.  Another ‘paradise found’!  Courtenay and I were so excited to find a ‘Pandora Charm Store’ selling only Pandora!  and of course we had to buy some!



Have a SCRAPtastic day!

Blessings,
Melitta
