Of course, I had a fabulous time at the retreat this weekend! 3 full days and nights of scrappin' and hanging out with some of the funnest, sweetest and talented ladies I know. How could it have been anything but fabulous? I thought I would share a snapshot of our work space ---




Can you see outside those windows? It's gorgeous! Of course it was raining and we only ventured outside once for a walk, but the grounds are fabulous. Over 50 wooded acres all fenced it with a lake in the middle! The kitchen is equally wonderful with industrial size ovens, refrigerators and supplies. I am actually in the kitchen when I was taking the photos --- that is how close it is! The bunk houses are right outside and again---- clean and comfortable, with full size mattresses!

It's truly a wonderful facility!

I relaxed, I created, I ate, I visited ---- but best of all, I laughed ---- non-stop! There was so many fun moments that it's impossible to re-cap them all. I laughed with old friends and with new friends and enjoyed every moment of every day!

I got lots done --- most of which I can't share with you yet --- but there were a few things that I did just for me. Let's see:

I love this picture of Emma in her Seahawk Outfit:

and this one of David when he was in middle school:

this one of Chase & Jack --- this is also a layout for the SKETCH-a-Thon over at My Sketch World:

this one is of the CUPCAKERY that we visited in Orange, CA:


this one of Jordan was quick & easy:


and this one was created by playing a game with the other girls on Sunday night. We all put 8 items in a paper bag and then drew out 8 new items. We then had 25 minutes to create a layout using all 8 items. Game was the inspiration of Tami! I got lucky, all my items coordinated nicely!

Then some quick & easy cards with some scraps:
