~Dusty is Going Cruising~
3-10 AUGUST 2013
We are so excited to be able to offer our Inaugural Scrapbooking Cruise - 7 days sailing from Brisbane to the Pacific Islands on the Pacific Dawn. 7 whole days to laze the days away enjoying everything that cruising life offers plus the opportunity to visit Noumea, Lifou and Port Vila Vanuatu taking in the wonderful sights and buildings of these fabulous locations, meeting the locals and let's not forget the GREAT shopping opportunities!!
But best of all, we have two very well known tutors coming along to teach 6 fantastic workshops while we are cruising and it is none other than the wonderful owner and designer of Dusty Attic, Jennifer Hedger and design team member Michelle Grant!! Jennifer & Michelle will be teaching us all some great techniques using Dusty Attic products and the cost of this Event includes these 6 workshops. There will be plenty of leftovers from your kits to take home and create further projects when you get home.
In just 7 nights you can leave life behind completely and transport yourself to the beauty of the Pacific Islands.
From Noumea to Lifou and Port Vila, see just how long a week can stretch when you are in paradise, all whilst attending amazing scrapbooking workshops and functions.

  1. wow, I'd love to come.
    We sailed on the Pacific Dawn in October, it was our first cruise and to be honest I wasn't to keen on going. I absolutely loved it.

  2. Hi everyone.
