Thanks for four GREAT years!!

Red Rooster Scrapbook Barn just celebrated its fourth year of having scrapbook retreats!  It has been wonderful and so much fun.  We celebrated again this year by having another annual Customer Appreciation Weekend.  We had two different groups of scrapbookers who scrapbooked either all day Friday or all day Saturday.  We also had some visitors who just came by to enjoy the refreshments, receive a scrapbook goodie and check out my barn house and scrapbook workshop.
Thanks so much ladies!  Thank you for your friendship, kindness and support in making my scrapbook retreats a success.  My greatest joy is watching all of you have fun!

Progressive Dinner Garden Party!

Great Friends!
 I wanted to share some pictures with you of my Progressive Dinner Garden Party! "Hmmm," the gals thought as they received my invitation! "Are we going to other homes too?" Well, actually the progressive dinner was in my yard. A little corny I know! We had appetizers, salad, dinner and dessert in four different areas of my yard. The appetizer was served at the Flower Path, the salad was served at the Doors to a Garden, dinner was served at the Sand Patio and dessert was served at Frog Haven Fire Pit. We had so much fun! I have been working so hard in my yard since early May that I wanted to share it with some of my best friends! My daughter Nicole and her good friend Karlie helped with serving all of us. We also had a professional calligrapher attend also. DeeAnn scripted all of our names (in the dark with flash lights) on a piece of black paper. They all were written so beautifully!

Wow!! We had such a great time. McCall and Jon are so kind and such a joy to be around. McCall is one of the most positive ladies I know and incredibly organized and talented! I met so many wonderful ladies! Almost half of the ladies who attended were from out of state. That goes to show you how wonderful everyone thinks of McCall and Jon!  We scrapbooked a ton, had a couple of classes, ate great food, some did a little touring of Salt Lake City, had a Cricut Class and just had fun!!

Liberty Falls
After spending the first part of my spring/summer working in the yard, we then went on a two week trip to Alaska.  My husband and I went with my good friend Julie and her husband.  We stayed with Julie's sister and her husband some of the time and traveled most of the other time.  We had so much fun.  Alaska is so beautiful.  Everything is green and wet.  There are so many rivers, lakes, waterfalls, mountains and trees.  I hope you enjoy some of my pictures!!
