Divas at Sea

Is it possible to have too much fun?  My dear friend Tanya and I cruised for the first time.  Our destination - the Caribbean islands of St. Maarten, St. Thomas and Nassau.  It was an experience I won't soon forget.  We enjoyed our time together on the high seas.  I'll share more about our adventure soon.

This week's Texture Tuesday challenge is to combine one of Kim Klassen's textures with any photo.  I used Kim's texture "shades of november".  The theme for this week's challenge is "celebration".  While our ship was docked in Nassau, I noticed the Celebration ship just outside our stateroom balcony - very appropriate for this week's challenge, don't you think?
