We were very fortunate to be invited by my in laws to the Four Season's resort. It was my first time in Sharm El Sheikh and, even though I do not enjoy usually beach resorts, this is a cut above the rest. The place is so beautiful, with private beach, four swiming pools, and even a funicular that takes you from the pool to the rooms area.
You may think that is pointless luxury, but with the heat going up the hill to your room doesn't appeal too much. I guess the concept is an outdoor lift. And nobody thinks twice about the luxury that is in fact a proper traditional lift!
The view from the top.
the view from the bottom.
View of he suites. Ours was on the ground floor (the best for accessibility).
And finally the private beach. I did swimm in the sea to do some snorkleing, but although the colours of the fish were great, it looks like the Red Sea shore is not that amazing anymore.
Sunset from the beach. Really relaxing.

I will try and upload more cards from now on!
The base silver card is a bought aperture card upside down, so the aperture is in the bottom instead of the top. I stamped the Hero arts set (a vintage one from a few years ago) and then punch them out with different sized circles punches.

Before I left for Cairo, I hoped to be able to update my blog, but it wasn't possible.
We had a fantastic time, here there are some photos of Cairo, we attended a wedding, had a mini holiday at Sharm El Sheikh and met tons of family.
I hadn't been in Egypt for over four years. I guess I never realized how much I missed it until I was there. With all the good and bad things that the country has, it is always a fastinating destination.

Thank you very much for all the lovely comments posted.
As I am going on a family trip later today for over two weeks, so I wont be able to upload often but I will try to post some of last years Christmas cards.
Beginning with this series, the above card was done using Quickutz dies, which you can find at Crafts U Love.
