October Scrapbook Retreat

Wow! We had so much fun this past weekend! What a great group of ladies! The title for the retreat was "Spooky Christmas" because it is so spooky how close Christmas really is! So, I made these nametags for everyone from the Cricut Paperdolls cartridge...

This retreat sold out, so the crop room was full. Sara took this picture after everyone had FINALLY gone to bed... at 5am on Saturday morning! Yep... they were having fun! Several ladies stayed up until 5:30am the next morning too! LOL!

Dinner on Saturday night consisted of sandwich trays from Subway, chips and a salad. Yum!

And lots of snacks on the Ladybug Snack Bar!

Sara helped me teach a Flip Book class. She did a great job and everyone liked the class...

Cindy did such a great job on her Flip Book! She used it right away for a Thanksgiving layout that she was working on. I loved the colors she used!

Sara used her Flip Book for this Sweet 16 layout:

Beth made the cutest layout of her son jumping in a Johnny Jumper! She used the Pooh Cricut cartridge to make these Tiggers:

Susan is one of my regulars! She and I became friends back when Lisa owned the business and I was just a Crop All Day customer.

Carolyn & Erin were in 'the zone'! They cranked out some awesome Disney pages this past weekend! I was impressed! Both had pre-planned their pages and arrived with cricuts in hand!

I was especially proud of one of my new customers, Ann... she used the cricut Storybook cartridge to make this layout of her daughter wearing a dress that her aunt had worn about 65 years ago!! It's just adorable:

Well, Anne, a good e-pal friend of mine, sent me a great link for some really cool paper trees. I think I am going to try to make one this week... they will be perfect for the wedding in December. Thanks Anne! I'll show you my progress here on my blog!

See ya!

Wow looks like you ladies had tons of fun. Glad it was such a success.

I have been working on a paper tree...we will have to compare notes. Mine has a styrofoam center and paper loops.

I love those nametags you made - ghosts with Santa hats....too cute!

Seeing the storybook cart layout, I hope I'm getting that or graphically speaking from hubby sooner than Christmas. I'm working on him!

You can see all the creative energy flowing in the room, what another great retreat by Ladybug and Company.

Can't wait to see the paper trees.
