5th Annual Crafty Chica Art Cruise!

(Click on image for a bigger view of image)

It’s here! Our 2011 Crafty Chica Art Cruise is locked in! CALL SCRAPMAP AT 1-877-887-1188 TO REGISTER! (Limited spaces!)

We dance, we shop, we play Bingo, we drink yummy drinks out of pretty glasses, we eat, we drool over our chocolate dessert, we CRAFT!

Calling all crafty chicas (and crafty hombres too)! We will sail on the brand new Carnival Splendor and visit the Mexican Riviera in between our crafting sessions. We’ll have the luxury of a large conference room 24/7, plus daily use of the dining room to craft our hearts out! All skill levels of crafters welcome.

This is our BIGGEST cruise ever!

With special guest…

Traci Bautista!
I’m delighted to announce that Traci will be joining us on the 5th Annual Cruise! She is a long time friend, a fellow craftista with a artful spirit, savvy business sense, a pure heart and oodles of creativity and talent! She’ll teach a mini-workshop one night on the cruise! Her energy is infectious, you know what I mean if you have ever met her!

    However, I need a travel buddy to share my room – if anybody could help me out that would be amazing – there must be at least one other single gal planning on doing this trip!
