Retreat Recap -- Ready to go Back!

What a WONDERFUL weekend we all had in Alvin on our scrapbooking retreat. KW Cabin Retreat is so warm & cozy…just a great, relaxing atmosphere. I just LOVE going here and spending time with some of my really good friends. We share lots of laughs; lots of ideas and LOTS of good food!

On Friday, my guests arrived to find these Tervis Tumblers I ordered and had personalized with “Scrappin’ Girls Weekend” on the back of it. The “Live Love Laugh” was perfect because it’s what we do. Stuffed inside the tumblers was a variety of chocolate (can’t scrap without that); and a package of our new Opaques Mocha Adhesive Gems.

I held a “Mystery Hostess” drawing. The winner of that was Andrea Maxwell. Since the gathering total reached $450, she was able to “Jump for Joy” as part of Close to my Heart’s October Constant Campaign. What that means is instead of $80 in FREE select product, she’ll receive $100 in select product. She got to jump to the next level. I think she was a tad bit excited! :)

The weekend always seems to go by way too fast, but it is definitely relaxing and rewarding! As always, I look forward to the next retreat. I am now taking deposits for the retreat I am hosting in Tomball at The Quilters Cabin. This will be my first time at this retreat center, but I am looking forward to it as I have hear LOTS of great things about it – like sometimes you can see deer while sitting outside. LOVE IT!!! Contact me for more details if you’re interested. This location has capacity of 12, and I have 5 people already signed up.

Are you ready for a Hooligan of a good time and ready to have pages to put your upcoming (or past) Halloween pictures on? Or would you like to create the cards to send to your little Ghosts & Goblins? Then join me in October for my Hooligans Workshop on the Go. I have a couple of dates available for you to choose from. Remember, even if you can't physically attend the event, you can still order and create on your own with the helpful guide that's included in the kit.

*If you don't have the Black Waxy Flax, I highly recommend it for this kit. In the guide, they just place the buttons on the layout; but I felt it needed the waxy flax to be a "complete button."

^I also highly recommend the Prisma Glitter. This DEFINITELY adds character to the pages.
