Had a Rough'n It Good Time!!

My Rough'n It Retreat was full of lots of good company, food, prizes, and of course, scrapbooking.  Everyone loved the location and thought it was beautiful.  We all brought our mattresses, pads, cots or foam and slept either inside or outside (upstairs) on the deck.  We had "smores by the oven!" (We all decided we wanted to stay inside and have smores instead of going outside by the fire.  You know, there has been bear sitings recently!!)  We also had a watermelon eating contest and a water balloon toss contest.  Everyone was a trooper and endured my fun games either by watching or participating!  And, as with all my other fun activities I have at my retreats, everyone always gets a prize for just participating with more prizes for the winners!

I am already planning my Rough'n It Retreat for next summer.  It will be a two nighter, so watch for the date!

The "smores by the oven" were delicious! 
We first melted the chocolate which made them very creamy!

Waking up outside to the fresh air was so nice!
These beds look as comfortable as mine at home.
Who says this was a rough'n it retreat!!!

The beautiful morning sky.

Enjoying meals outside on the deck.

They didn't know they were going to eat
their watermelon blindfolded!
Anita was the winner!

Notice their wet shirts and pants!!
It was hot outside so I am sure it felt refreshing!!

Last weekend my friend, Julie, and I were invited to go on a two night retreat way up in the mountains past Kamas.  The lady who put on the retreat started having retreats there a few years ago as a fundraiser for the NICU (neonatal intensive care unit for premature babies).  She had twin babies that were born premature and found a great way to give back!  We all had a wonderful time.  As you can see, the location was just beautiful.

We all received a sweatshirt with eyelets embroidered on the front that said "it's all FUN & GAMES until someone loses an eyelet!  They were so cute and warm.  We needed them in the evenings in the cool air!

Doing a make'n'take!

I want to thank everyone who came to my 2nd annual Customer Appreciation Party!!  I enjoyed meeting lots of new ladies (and a few husbands!!).  It was fun meeting some of the ladies who have been following my blog!  Everyone enjoyed shopping for scrapbook supplies and kits I had marked at fabulous prices.  They also received a scrapbook gift and almost everyone entered into my drawing for a CRICUT EXPRESSION and lots of other scrapbook supplies and gift baskets.  I served some yummy refreshments and had a couple of make-n-take projects.  I also had a few ladies come and scrapbook.  I am already thinking about what I am going to do for my annual Customer Appreciation Party next year!
