Thursday things...

I finally got pictures downloaded last night from our Cruise and Crop on the Monarch of the Seas adventure last weekend. Here are a few of the journals that were submitted for judging on various categories. Haley's winning journal in the one on the far R:

And Joy's winning entry is the one above on the L - "Thinking outside the box" - she cut strips of paper to look like piano keys on the left-hand side of the journal. Pretty clever! She is VERY musical--plays the piano, organ, and sings beautifully...played the cello in her youth...disgustingly talented. And she is a sweetie. Now she is gonna put various musical pictures on the inside. Oh yes, her two daughters are also musical, along with her brother and nephew........no lack of musical talent in that family!

Here we all are hard at work cutting, pasting, stamping, coloring...thanks to Dick for catching this shot...

Queen of the Crop Haley and Joy with their winning entries...
And the whole Mayberry group all gussied up for dinner...
Hope y'all enjoyed cruising with us. Who wants to go next time?

It was the violin/viola I played, Sandy, but thank you for the kind words...as they say, the truth is good but flattery is even better! Great pictures.
I will probably steal Dick's crop shot since I didn't get one myself.
Hugs,
Joy

Absolutely! I'd love to go along next time! I'm afraid I've never been on a cruise and reading about so many of them really has me wishing I could go!
