This week-end I experienced my first Scrapbook Retreat with Ann from Qld Scrapbooking Retreats
Can i just say...I had a ball....
I sat next to a lady who was disappointed she had only got 8 pages done on her first day.......I was thinking "gee I had only done 1"...she said she usually does anywhere between 30-40 layouts done at a retreat.....I saw her layouts and they were really nice.....how she gets that many done, I have no idea....While she was on a roll others were very social and just enjoying the week-end away....
I just had to take this photo, it looked like organized chaos, I was worried I took way to much.....OMG some had triple what I had taken....and scrap the night away is an under statement, you were able to scrapbook from 7.30am to 1am the next morning....now that's a lot of scrapping time....We had a dress up Country and Western night on the Saturday night with a bit of boot scooting thrown in....
It was a great week-end had by all...
These girls got right into the sprit of things and dressed up while others like myself settle for jeans, checked shirts and cowgirl hats...

Even tho we are planning our own Retreat, if you cant make ours, you just have to check out what Ann has to offer with hers....Go to www.qldscrapbookingretreats.com.au
