Snowman Retreat January 2010

Brrr, it was cold outside, but we kept warm inside scrapbooking and making snowmen!  Aren't they adorable!  (Double click on the photo to get a good look at each one.  They are wonderful!)  At the last retreat we had a pumpkin decorating contest and this time we had a snowman contest.  Once again, the ladies impressed me by their creativity!  It was a tough and close contest, but the winner of the contest was the Birt table.  Good job ladies.

Got milk?!  Friday evening we enjoyed yummy cookies with some cold, cold milk.

Have you ever tried to whistle immediately after eating four crackers?  Well, this is what these ladies were trying to do.  The first one who whistled was yes, our very own Brigham City's 2009 Business Person of the Year, Donna McCrae, with Just Bee Scrap'n.  Hey, Donna, shall I forward this picture over to the Chamber!!  It was a lot of fun.  All the ladies were troopers and everyone received a prize who participated in the contest!

Our page layout contest winner was Trish.  Her layout wasn't the traditional whole picture on a page with embellishments.  She took her photos and cut them into tiny squares and then laid them out with about 1/8th of inch of space in between each square.  She then added a whole picture to complete the page.  It makes for a very unique and beautiful layout!

Once again we had our raffle!  Our grand prize winner this time was Jenny!  She was so excited to win the big basket of scrapbooking supplies.

We had some travelers again at this retreat.  These ladies were from the Saratoga Springs area -- almost two hours away.  What we will do and where we will travel to get some time away to scrapbook for two days!  Welcome ladies, I hope you enjoyed yourselves and enjoyed traveling through the beautiful Sardine Canyon! 

I want to thank my friend Julie for helping me out with the retreats.  Crunch time happens first thing in the morning while putting out all the goodies for the scrapbookers.  She has been a great help and good friend.  Julie and I have been scrapbooking together for a few years now!  We too love to get away for the weekend to scrapbook and enjoy all our new friends and fellow scrapbookers!
