Thailand Travels and another Make and Take Share

Year of Cheer Suite by Stampin' Up! Cheers to You Stamp Set and Year of Cheer Paper 2

The memories of our Thailand trip will glow for many years much like the foil paper in this card.  This is one of the Make and Takes we made in Thailand featuring the Year of Cheer Suite in the Holiday Catalog.  The Holiday Catalog goes live September 1st and you won't want to miss checking out this glowing suite. 

Year of Cheer Suite by Stampin' Up! Cheers to You Stamp Set and Year of Cheer Paper 3

Much like the Beauty of Thailand the beauty of this card is hard to capture in a photo.  The foil designer paper had 4 different designs in champagne, copper, gold and silver.  

The stunning Foil Snowflake can be either Silver or Gold with a simple flip of the snowflake.  

See the dangling little star tied with the Linen Thread?  This fun embellishment comes in a package of 24 and has both gold and silver charms in 2 different designs.  

There are so many amazing things it this Holiday Catalog I am going to warn you - your list will be HUGE!  

I know it isn't everyone's favorite thing to look at friends vacation picture, that is why I am putting them at the end of the post so you can escape easily. 

Day  Two of the Thailand Adventure

Morning Fruit Mangosteen
Tom is opening a Mangosteen fruit for me - these were my favorite exotic tropical fruit and part of the wonderful bowl of fruit that welcomed us to our room.

Day 2 Thailand Incentive Trip!
We spent the 2nd day with our dear Stampin' Up! incentive trip buddies Dave & Georgia walking along the beach and swimming the afternoon away in the pool.  For some reason I only have a pic of the guys!  

I was a bit freaked out as we walked along the beach all the little sand crabs ran around down into their holes.  I really don't like critters and there were a few on this trip.  Stay tuned in weeks to come for more critter stories. 

Day Three of the Thailand Adventure

Thailand Wires
This morning we boarded a bus and headed to the east side of the island.  The wires on the poles were overwhelming, it was an endless stream of wires everywhere. 

Boat we took to the floating city
When we reached the east side of the island we boarded a boat to take us out to the floating city of Koh-Panyi.  

Dock at the floating city
Here is were we disembarked the boat to tour the floating city. 

Koh-Panyi Thailand
Here is an arieal view of the city, of course I didnt' take this photo from the air. 

Thailand Floating Village
This sort of blew my mind - we were out in the middle of the Andaman Sea and here is the city built on stilts with a population of over 1,000 people. 

Thailand Floating Village (3)
As we walked through the shops and small boardwalk streets with water on the edges I wondered how they raise small toddlers (I am sure they learn to swim early). 

Thailand Floating Village (4)
You can see the  blue roof of the elementary school on the left, the picnic tables are their lunch room.

Thailand Floating Village (5)
Here we are getting ready to meet the boat that dropped us off on the other side of the city.  

Thailand Floating Village (6)
We saw many of this type of boat in Thailand with these big card engines and long shafts. 

James Bond Island
Our next stop was the famous James Bond Island.

Lunch on the Beach
We finished out the day on a beautiful island with a feast set for a Queen.  The tables were sheltered with a canopy provided by the beautiful trees it really was breathtaking. 

Enjoying the Beach in Thailand
The rest of the day was spent swimming in the ocean and just some R&R on the beach!

Just another day in Paradise.  I feel so blessed to have earned so many incentive trips with Stampin' Up! and I couldn't do it without you amazing customers and team members who make my job the BEST in the WORLD!
