WOYWW #413

Happy Wednesday everyone!  I'm so excited to tell you guys that my daughter and I are leaving this Friday afternoon to a Scrapbooking Retreat!  We go every year on Mother's Day weekend, but due to some scheduling changes, we had to switch it a week earlier this year.

The place we go is part of a Christian Camp in the mountains & we stay at the Silver Ridge House.  It's so beautiful and peaceful up there AND the bonus is not having to cook or clean for 3 1/2 days!  They do all the cooking and kitchen clean up.  We each get our own twin bed and sleep at least 4-5 women in each room.  All the women that attend are part of our little scrapbooking group in the town that we live in.  It's amazing!

Now to my work area...my desk is clear since I've packed away most of my stuff!  I know I always over pack but you just never know what you'll need.  Good thing scrapbookers love to share their stash.  Even if I forget something, I can get some from my fellow scrapbooker and vice versa plus there's a Joanne's about two miles from the house.

I can't wait to show photos of my completed layouts.  I'm hoping to start and finish our Cruise Album.

  2. What a fun idea! All that meet and greet and sharing of new ideas! Plus the "hog heaven" of a Joanne's so closely located.
