Scrap Happy

60 hours away at a scrapbook retreat was just what I needed after the hectic 2 months we had had. It is amazing how I came back feeling refreshed and renewed, even though I only slept a total of 9 hours over the 2 nights!
The other retreats I have gone on have been small intimate ones with 12-14 people who all know each other. This one was much larger with 65+ people in a large conference room. I really enjoyed the energy and walking around looking at all the different styles, tools and ideas was quite inspiring. It was also nice to have a small shop set up right in the room for buying emergency items. I see the benefit in both styles and really as long as I have a table, chair and time I am not going to complain!
As great as the scrappin' was, time with good friends is even better. I had such a great time with my roomie Karin. Lots of laughs were had!

As always, I wasn't quite as productive as I had hoped but I really like the pages that I got completed. I also did some new techniques like sewing, painting and masking on the pages. FUN!! I am going to work on the perfecting posting layouts so I can share some more but here is a sneak peak of one of my favorites.
