scrapbook retreat...

Last week I attended a 4-day retreat with some girlfriends. We'd been waiting for this for months...
The crop was put on by Scrapbook Paradise Reno. The lodge where it was held was in a beautiful location- Portola, California. You could really feel the change of season up so high in the mountains. We stayed in individual cabins on the property. The crop room at the main lodge was HUGE and everyone had tons of room to work.
OK, that's the good part of the trip.

As for the rest of it... the crop was an absolute dud. D-U-D! No music, no games, no prizes (well, except for a small paper trimmer and 2 Cricut magazines. That was it for FOUR days- yeah, really.) Absolutely horrible food (think- elementary school science camp. ugh). The store owner who put on the crop didn't even come- she was only there for a short time to check people in on Thursday. That kinda told me something!... 
For $330 I at least expected some decent food.

Thank goodness for the fabulous ladies I was with- they could make anything fun. Love you girls- Cathy, Kris, Mary and Sue- my stomach still hurts from laughing so much! Nights with you back at our cabin were the best.
Hard to believe that out of all this mess I actually made this...
I'll post my projects later this week. Lots of unpacking to do because I had a class here at home as soon as we came back so all my weekend supplies are still in bags!

OMGosh Terri.......Well we lived through it. And yes our nights were the most fun making up those stupid stories. I haven't laughed that hard in years! But you have to make fun to have fun! And that part we did. You forgot to mention the name of the store to tell all your readers to not shop there while in Reno... Scrapbook Paradise. Go to the store in Carson NV. instead!
