All Aboard: Sheila's Scrapbooking Cruise

By: Annie Chamovitz

From: The Cumberland Creek Mystery Series
Author: Mollie Cox Bryan
Book 4 Title: A Crafty Christmas (October 7)

Sheila won a huge design competition. And part of the prize is a ten-day scrapbooking cruise. I never knew such a thing existed, but it does. Imagine a ship full of scrapbookers, cropping all day and night on a beautiful ship, surrounded by the sea. Sounds too good to be true, doesn't it?
Sheila was given tickets to take two friends with her, as well. I wish I could have gone, the cruise takes place during Hanukah and Mike hand have committed to staying at home during the Jewish holidays to be with the boys.
DeeAnn could not go either—it’s the bakery’s biggest time of the year. It seems that very few people do their own holiday baking anymore and rely on DeeAnn and her shop to provide “homemade goodies” during the holidays.
Vera wanted Beatrice to go with her, but Bea does not like cruises. She prefers to stay on solid ground.

I’m sorry to miss the cruise with Vera, Sheila and Paige, because Sheila will be treated like a scrapbooking star. That will be something to see! She will also be interviewed by several scrapbooking and design companies while she is there. The possibilities are endless for her. I’m so happy for her and want her to do well, you know? She is one talented artist, but she’s always put her family first. I am hoping this scrapbooking cruises helps Sheila to usher in a new phase of her life—one that is a little more about her and her talent. 
Beatrice is a little worried about this cruise. I don't know why. I mean, really, what could happen to them on a cruise ship?

  1. Having never been on a cruise and never scrapped, this book would be so much fun for me, like being a stowaway. What could happen, indeed!

  2. You just never know, Nancy, do you? Mwhahaha!

  3. I have a dear friend who recently won tickets to London for herself and a friend.
    I was blessed she asked me first, but she wants to stay a month, I hope she has a wonderful time.
    I have never been on a cruise. A week of scrapping? Might be more than I can handle.
