Scrapbooking Retreat

I am at a scrapbooking retreat.  I left Far Guy and Chance to take care of each other at home.  There were left overs in the fridge and a few Hockey Game’s on the TV to help fill their evenings.  Perhaps they will write the Christmas Letter whilst I am gone.

I am working on a scrapbook from 2008..I am a little behind.  I also have supplies to make cards.

Jen is here too!  It is good to have company at retreat. There are fourteen women here.  I know five of them.



It is good to have a little vacation, someone else cooks and the snack table is full.


I was the sensible one that brought the fruit:)

  1. Hope you two have a great time.

  2. I hope you're having a wonderful time!! And get something completed!!

  3. Ah a scrap book bevotee. Our friend Rosie does this same thing beautifully and elaborately. I knew I couldn't come close to the quality of her work but was inspired to take my falling apart childhood album, inherited from my mom, and redo it to keep it from completely fading and falling apart. Voila! I eventually redid ALL our picture albums (it took years) and now my project is to digitalize our thousands of ectachrome slides....:)

  4. That sounds like a wonderful getaway. Hope you enjoy yourself......Blessings Francine.

  5. Sounds like a fun thing to do, and right up your alley. I don't scrapbook but wish I did... :-)

  6. Sounds like a great get-away. Enjoy!

  7. Sounds like great fun and I hope you will share your results with us as they are finished!

  8. My second daughter makes wonderful cards and scrape books. I can only dream about what I would like to do...otherwise I'm all thumbs.


    ¸.•*¨*•♪♫♫♪Merry Christmas to you ♪♫•*¨*•.¸¸♥

  9. I've never done scrapbooking, although I do like crafty things and photos. Maybe after the grandkids are in school....

    And that reminds me, would you consider posting a tutorial on how you make your photo greeting cards? They are absolutely beautiful, and I can tell you use just the right supplies and techniques (in addition to starting with a great photo).

    Have a great time at the retreat!

  10. Sounds like a fun time. You're a person who needs a good break after what you do all summer.

  11. Don't eat the fruit!!! I saw some delectable items begging to be sampled.


  12. What a fun way to spend a dreary day/weekend!
    I have some scrapbooking supplies. I enjoy making cards and have never actually put together a scrapbook. Maybe some day! I have often wondered if creating an online scrapbook would be as fulfilling as touching everything, and snipping papers, and deciding what embellishments to add, etc. You will post pictures of your creations, right?!

  13. Oh gosh! I bet that was fun!! :)

  14. Sounds like fun to me!!!! Is that your daughter, Jennifer? Where was it at? A hotel or resort or someone's home? Ooohhh....snack table looks REAL good!!!
