Sacramento Scrapbook Expo - So Much Fun!!

Last weekend I attended the Sacramento Scrapbook Expo and had a great time!  I met my sister-in-law there and we scrapbooked for three days and did lots and lots of shopping.  The products sold were wonderful and they had great make-n-takes.  I also visited with my sisters and nephew and his family.  They all live in the Sacramento area so I took the opportunity to visit with them and have a fun weekend scrapbooking.

During two of our crop days, the Expo had a different theme on each day. The second day we cropped they had a western theme and the third day was a 20's theme. If you have ever been to one of my retreats, you know I always have a different theme at my retreats. So, I wanted to participate in the Expo's theme too. During the crops they had lots of drawings and contests with prizes. On the western night they asked for anyone who could make an animal sound. I made a sound of a horse!! The winners were an elephant and a monkey. It was pretty funny.

My western hat says "Scrapbooking makes me HAPPY."
Betty had on this really cute western apron.
She also helps with the crops.  She is from Idaho and Salt Lake City.
These ladies were having fun!

Something must of been really funny!

Crop time!
The make-n-takes were great.  I made four different ones!

I love bling!!

Spooky Spooktacular Retreat!!

Aunt Helga was a special guest at my Spooktacular retreat and she had a treat and scrapbook goodie for everyone!  All the ladies were giggling during her visit!!  We had a fun Halloween mask contest.  There were prizes for the scariest, funniest, ugliest, prettiest and best overall.  Everyone who participated got a prize too!  We also served lots of spooky treats -- Ghostly peanut butter ghookies, Brenda's batty chocolate chip cookies (the best ever!), Frankie's cupcakes and black widow pie!! 

I had such a good time putting on this retreat and always look forward to the next one!

I have two fun upcoming retreats.  I hope you are able to attend. 

First, on January 27-28 we are going to have a Happy New Year retreat at the Crystal Inn in Brigham City.  Now is the time to make your New Year's resolution - GET MORE SCRAPBOOKING DONE!!  Going to retreats is the perfect way to accomplish your New Year's resolution.  I have resorted to the fact that no matter how much I think I am going to scrapbook at home - I never do!  So...going to my retreats and other retreats is the way I get it done.  So, come join us and start the New Year off right!!

Red Moose Lodge
My next retreat will be a Happy Birthday Retreat held on April 13-14 at the beautiful Red Moose Lodge in Eden.  This place is one of my most favorite places to have a retreat.  It is located in the beautiful Ogden Valley and has a country/lodge type atmosphere with an outdoor jacuzzi.  All the rooms are decorated very beautifully and are very spacious.  We are going to be celebrating everyone's birthday.  So come and join the fun!!
