Fabulous Weekend!!





This weekend I was able to attend a scrapping retreat. I had sooo much FUN!! We all arrived on Friday afternoon and unpacked our goodies. I always pack up "Kits" for crops. In these kits I put the pictures I want to scrap, the paper, the embellies and if I am using a sketch then I toss that in also. I always take some soda, snacks and MUSIC in the form of my iPod. For this crop we had all agreed to bring our bedding and our meals were going to Pot Luck. I brought a casserole and some cheesecake with cherries to top it off. We all ate then dug into our stashes to get busy. Oh we also had strawberry margaritas..........YUMMMO!!

We scrapped til 3 am then turned in. The next morning we all rolled out and our friend Sandy made us breakfast. Everyone had Belgian waffles and I had an egg sandwich............I have to have protein for breakfast or I am worthless the entire day. We scrapped all day and I decided I would go home and shower and sleep in my own bed. I got up and went back to the store and was there by 9 am. The gals had stayed up again til 3 am...........Whew, I am glad I went home early. Can't imagine how tired I would have been if I had stayed late. We all finished up what we were working on and then began to pack up to go home.

Here is a sample of what I got accomplished.
