National Scrapbook Day Retreat!

I am getting sooo excited about this retreat! I will get to see many familiar faces (I love you gals!) and have several newbies who have signed up (can't wait to meet ya'll!)! And the best thing about it is our new location! The HILTON GARDEN INN in Frisco, Texas. As I walked into the lobby, I was greeted with the sign in the picture above.... it truly is a 'sign'!

I have booked all three of the large meeting rooms (which opens up into one huge 2100 sq' room) Frisco I, II & III for us to crop in allll weekend longggggg!

Here is how the tables will be set up for our cropping...

Everyone is welcome to bring their own cricuts, electricity will be set up for every table. The tables are 6' long and while the chairs are not computer desk chairs, they are very comfortable, very padded and brand new conference chairs. There will be a limited supply of Memory Mats, Ott lights and side tables available for check out... those will be on a 'first come, first serve' basis.

I really am excited about this retreat! It begins on Friday... includes all your meals and ends Sunday evening.

Breakfast is provided in the hotel courtyard at your convenience both Saturday morning and Sunday morning.


I will post the menus for the rest of the meals next week, once we have finalized them.
What about the sleeping rooms, you ask? OMG! This hotel has only been open for 3 months as of this post... when you come out of the elevator you are instantly greeted with that nice smell of new carpet... nice and clean. I have booked the rooms with two queen beds, featuring white duvets. Each room has a large work desk is featured with Herman Miller ergonomic desk chair, complimentary high-speed internet access, microwave and refrigerator, coffee, coffee makers, irons and ironing boards.

And you just won't believe the beds! They call them the "Garden Sleep System", but it reminds me of the 'Sleep Number' beds. You can adjust the beds to be really soft or extra firm... your choice. Notice the mattress cover... it is made of 100% New Zealand virgin wool (I'm thinking that there's alot of naked sheep in New Zealand! LOL!) My only worry is that everyone will sleep in too long and miss quality crop time! Hehehee!

There are mini fridges and microwaves in every room.

Flat screen TVs... (yes... I know Vanna has no fear of losing her job to me! Lol!)

Comfy chairs to relax in... (Hi Marianne!)

Did I say that I was excited about this retreat?! Hehehee

Oh... and not only is the parking FREE!... it is very close to the crop room and the Ladybug Bellhops will be on duty that weekend!
So, if you want more information on this retreat... go to but hurry because there aren't many seats left!

Can't wait! Looks like a great place! I see that there is high speed internet in the rooms, but is there WiFi in the conference rooms where we will be?
