A Smashing Time

As some of you already know, we just returned from a 7-day cruise to the Bahamas. We had a lovely time and Royal Caribbean really knows how to keep people busy and entertained. I actually need a vacation from my vacation because I did so much!

A while ago I wrote a blog post about making a smash book. I believe it was call “Get Smashed” or something like that. Anyway, I took my homemade smash book on the cruise AND I actually worked on it.  I didn’t get everything in it on the cruise though, so I have worked on it a little at home too. Here are pictures of some of my cruise pages, and don’t worry, there are no family photos involved!

Our Cruise Was Postponed!

Our Cruise Was Postponed!


As you can see, our original cruise date was pushed back.


Some of the first paper “stuff” we got on the cruise.


The airboat ride was really fun as were all our shore excursions.


Yeah, you can read it right there, I only worked out three of seven days on the cruise. I paid for it at the gym this morning though!


Not working out did NOT stop me from eating lots of food and drinking fruity “mocktails”.


The trivia games were fun, but Martin and I were horrible at it. Only 13 out of 40 right on the ’50s and ’60’s rock game and 26 out of 40 on the classic rock game. In our defense though, we only had little 2 or 3 second snipettes from obscure parts of the songs.


Nothing really “smashed” here. I took the daily activities schedules, folded them in half (so they fit in the book) and punched holes in them. I put number stickers on the top of each day. Oh and see the yellow rubber bracelet on the right side? That was flung into the crowd by the cruise activities staff during the 70’s Line Dance Party! I had forgotten all about the Hustle!!!

Well the summer is half over folks, but that still gives you plenty of time to go out and have some adventures of your own. Just remember to keep everything you get so you can have a “smashing” time too!

    Love your smash book. I made one too and put in all our Maine stuff. Smash books are so much fun. Have you made one of the little journals using empty toilet paper rolls? I have made several and given them away. The recipients really seemed to like them. Making one now to send with a baby gift. Glad you had a good time on your cruise. We need to have tea soon!
