Alaskan Cruise Wordbook

This is an Alaskan Cruise wordbook that I am working on for a friend.  Originally, I made the cruise ship using dark blue, red, and white.  But, as I looked at the ship and the colors, I decided I wanted cooler colors.  I asked for some tips on making the glacier, and received some very good advice.  I ended up using felt to create the glacier.  I used some blue catseye ink around the edges, and some clear glitter to add some shine.

On the pages to the right of the book, I added a glacier and a place to add photos.  On the left hand side of the pages, I just adhered a piece of cardstock.  I like leaving some blank areas in the wordbooks when I make them for other people so they can add their own touch to the books. 

I had fun working on this.  My hubby helped me some, I didn't have a cartridge with a cruise ship so I had to make my own using basic shapes from the cricut, so, I used my hubby's expertise in ships to help me construct this one...I think it turned out pretty cute.  Oh, and not to mention I used the peachy keen faces in the windows...

Thank you for taking a looksie!...Deanna
