Many of you may know that October is breast cancer awareness month!  So, in honor of this recognition, my next scrapbooking retreat will be a Breast Cancer Fundraiser retreat.  All proceeds will be donated to the American Cancer Society and Tough Enough to Wear Pink. 

I have known so many women that have had breast cancer.  My greatest hope that will come from this retreat is your recognition of how important it is to have a yearly mammogram if you are over 40 years old.  Early detection is the best rate of survival. 

We will have tons of raffle items, a silent auction and a Spin & Win for a free scrapbook retreat.  And, to support the Tough Enough to Wear Pink campaign, Friday night we are going to have you invite your brother, dad, husband, grandpa, friend or son to the retreat.  We will have them wear their favorite pink shirt with a pink ribbon pinned to their shirt with any amount of donation they would like to contribute.  Be thinking now who you are going to invite!!  There will be plenty more fun!  I will also have shirts for sale.  More information on the t-shirts and the retreat will be posted later.  

I hope you are able to attend this retreat or in some way be able to donate to this great cause.  Let me know as soon as you can if you would like to come to the retreat.  Payment in full will be earlier than usual to confirm your attendance.  Please have your payment to me by September 1st.  Here are this details:

It has been a while since I had a spring fling retreat.  Oh, how I miss them.  I am going to start doing them again and they will be a two-day retreat.  It is a great time of the year to start getting in the groove of getting our scrapbooking done!!  Thanks ladies for coming again!  The Crystal Inn is where I had my first overnight retreat.

Aunt Helga and Cousin Mabel came to visit us at our retreat.  They gave everyone cute craft purses with candy in them.  The Halloween mask contest was really fun.  We had scrapbook prizes for categories and everyone received a scrapbook prize who participated.  The spider cookies were really good and so was the spooky rootbeer floats!

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.
