Scrapbooking Retreat Was So Fun!


This past weekend I went to the scrapbooking retreat at Maranatha.  It was so much fun!  We started scrapping on Thursday and continued into the wee hours of the night each night through Saturday.  I was operating on only 4 to 5 hours of sleep a night.  About Saturday night around midnight, I started to realize that I am way to old to keep that kind of schedule for any amount of time!  Anyway, I got 45 pages done in my daughter's wedding album.  I started the album when I got there, and all I have left to finish are a few layouts from the reception.  The Save the Date layout in the picture above was the winner of the "Page of the Day" contest on Friday, and I won a new organizing container for my Cricut cartridges.  I was very surprised to win, and loved my prize.
In between scrapping, I was able to spend time with my grandbabies.  My granddaughter stayed with us so that my daughter in law could feed her.  She was such a good little girl!  We didn't have any problems keeping her happy while we worked.  My son and grandson joined us for meals and visited us a couple of times a day.  It was a great weekend!  Now, I am back to quilting.  With shop hop around the corner, I am working on getting as much done as I can before I go to Kearney to help mom.
