November "MIM" Sketch# 49 "Freezing @ Tracy Arm!"

Happy November!!!   I hope all of you out there in Bloggyland are well, and you are ready to get your "SKETCH on!"  The first sketch for this month @ The Memory Nest Blog is up and ready for you to join in!

Leslie has given us another FUN Challenge this month, with a little added "somethin' somethin'!"

I am sure you are able to replace the "@" sign with any other embellishment, but I thought it would be fun to incorporate it in my layout, and in the title.  Take a look at the sketch:

As a little "aside" for you - I did do a little research and found out that the "@" was originally used when listing and pricing items for example:  Qty (3) Chocolate Bars @ $1.00each = $3.00.
Sometimes it is also used in the place of the word "Approximately" or "Around" as well - ie: We should arrive @ 6:00pm. 
Since the invention of Email - it has become widely used as an email "Address" denoting what email service or provider is used for that person's email address.  - So now you know! LOL!

Now, onto my DT Inspiration Layout for you....

I decided to break into the pack of Disney Cruise Line ALASKA Scrapbook papers/stickers, that I purchased on our Disney Wonder Cruise this past June, along with some other papers from my "STASH!" I love the bright and dark blues that pick up the colors in the glacier, mixed with the black and red check, that picks up on our red rain jackets - I didn't think it would work - but somehow it does!

This is one of my favorite photos of us, standing at the bow of The Disney Wonder, right in front of the Sawyer Glacier, at the end of our trip up Tracy Arm Fjord.  We stood, freezing, in the cold, wet, rainy weather for about 2 hours, holding our "front row spot" as we traveled up the Fjord, approaching the glacier.

We sailed through incredible blue water, and around every bend there were breathtaking views of mountains and amazing waterfalls. As we got closer, there were icebergs and seals floating by too.  It was a trip of a lifetime, and a memory we will cherish always. This view was worth the wait, in the cold, wet, windy weather for sure!

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you will join us and play along at THE MEMORY NEST BLOG.  I can't wait to see what you will come up with!!
