We had a nice, cozy time at my retreat in Island Park.  I changed it from the Lakeside Lodge in Island Park to my place.  We met some new friends and got lots of scrapbooking done! Weather was perfect for a nice walk.

Come see me at the Let's Create Scrapbook Expo to spin and win a scrapbook retreat or scrapbook prizes.  Event is held all day April 28th and 29th at the South Town Expo Center in Sandy, Utah.  Hope to see you there!!


I am so excited to announce a new location for my upcoming summer retreats. This lovely Lakeside Lodge is located in beautiful Island Park, Idaho and on Island Park Reservoir. It is located about 4 hours northeast of Ogden and 30 minutes west of the West Yellowstone entrance. It is worth the drive!! Lots of scenic areas to visit also.

Please visit to view the lodge's site and accommodations.

June's retreat will start on Thursday at 3 pm and end Saturday at 10 pm.
July's and August's retreats will start 10 am on Thursday and end Saturday at 10 pm.

I will provide breakfast at my cabin on Friday and Saturday morning or you are welcome to treat yourself at their restaurant.

The price is $140 per person to have a shared room onsite or $110 per person to have a shared room at my small cabin about 7 miles away. If you only want to come during the day it is $95 for all three days.

I am so glad that, with the support of my awesome scrapbooking ladies/friends, I have decided to continue with my scrapbook retreats.  After taking a 16 month break, my last retreat went off without a hitch!!  I must admit I was a bit nervous but the retreat went as fabulous as always!  We had some great Superbowl scrapbook fun and of course the ladies joined in with the fun!

Hello Everyone! I hope you have all been well this past year and you are keeping up with your scrapbooking!! If you are like me, it takes a getaway to get any scrapbooking done.

I have had inquiries of whether I was going to do a retreat this January and it wasn't until this past week did I decide to host one. I hope you are as excited to read this post as I am excited to have another retreat. I miss all of you! I have been wanting to transition into doing retreats at my home, but I haven't gone that route yet.

Even though hotel costs have gone up, I am going to keep the prices the same except there won't be a price break for more than four in a room. The day rate has changed a bit too. And, I am only having a price option of coming all three days. I am reserving the Sahara and Sonora rooms so we will have room for about 80 ladies. So, hurry up and get your reservation made so you don't miss out!!

Price includes two nights stay and two hot breakfasts along with a welcome gift and prizes throughout the retreat:

Sad to say this past retreat may possibly be my last big retreat.  Time to take a break.  I have one more child at home for only one more year before she moves on to another adventure in her life.  Just wanted to eliminate anything extra in my life so I could spend as much time with her.

These last seven years hosting retreats have been absolutely amazing!  I have met the best ladies ever.  You all have been so supportive and kind to me.  I never imagined what these retreats would have turned into.  After my first year of hosting day-only scrapbook events, I wanted to have an overnighter and thought I would never be able to get enough ladies to come.  Well, six years later, I have a following of 50-100 ladies at each retreat.  Every time it just amazed me . . . you all just kept coming again and again.  THANK YOU so much.

I do want to say that the best compliment I ever received about my retreats was how nice the ladies are who come to my retreats.  It is so true.  You all have been so fun to be with and I know some of you have gained great friendships with each other.

At the Mustache Mania retreat, the ladies had this picture frame made for me.  (Which I now have hanging on the wall above my desk at home that I get to admire everyday!)  Everyone at the retreat signed it and said some very nice things.  They also gave me a gift certificate to a sushi restaurant (which is my favorite).

I can't go without giving Julie a huge thank you for all the help she has given me over the years.  She was always there to help me get set up in the mornings the day of the retreat and always very willing to help with whatever else I needed.  She always just went along with the ride at all the silly costumes I asked her to wear to help make the retreats fun!  She is one of my best friends and I love her dearly.

I love you all and thank you for the great memories!
