It’s Retreat Time!

Good morning.  I know.  I’m a bad blogger.  So much has happened since I last really blogged!  Not only have I been traveling a lot, but my baby turned 4! FOUR!  Scott says I can’t call him a baby anymore.  Boo!  But isn’t he precious!   Such a water baby!

Alright I’m done gushing!  On to the retreat!  The retreat date is set for Thursday, September 23-Sunday, September 26 in Temple, GA!  (located about 1 hour east from Atlanta!)

My retreats are all-inclusive! 
That means:
• 9 meals! Lunch and Dinner Thursday , Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner Friday & Saturday and Brunch on Sunday.
• 3 nights of lodging! 2600 sq ft. split level home fully renovated for complete scrapbook fun. Every person gets their own bed!!!!
• Goodies Bag! More goodies than you could hope and chances to win lots more!
• Classes! I do not want to overwhelm you with lots of classes since we came to crop our pants off, so I’m only offering two classes, but they are great classes! These classes can be paid for when you pay the remainder of your trip.
• Non-stop cropping! You will get 4 feet of cropping space along with a black leather-rolling chair and Tag Along drink holder/trash bag.
• Games and Contests! Come prepared for bingo, scramble words and much more on Saturday night!!!!
• Chocolate, Candy & oh did I mention Chocolate?!! Unlimited chocolate and candy all weekend.

Does all of this sound fabulous?  I know, it does!!!  I am offering a discount if you pay your $50 deposit by August 8!  So that means if you pay by August 8th then you can come for $125!!!!!  After August 8th, the retreat is back up to $150!  There are only 14 spot available so you better hurry!  Now I’m sure you are asking yourself, How do I pay for this?  I’ve made it very simple!  There are paypal buttons up at the top, left of my blog!  I will send a confirmation once I receive the deposit or entire amount!  If you have any questions, please feel free to email me!!!

I’ve been everywhere man!

You know the song?  Well I have been.  Yikes.  And my camera battery charger was stolen at the airport so I can’t upload photos which is why I haven’t posted in a while.  (insert sad face!)

So since my last post (which I didn’t get the graphic for mother’s day posted.  sorry!) I have been to Donna Downey’s Inspired, then my last show with Rusty Pickle in Buffalo NY, then Orlando with Tattered Angels, then Arlington TX with Melissa Frances, then off for two weeks (Praise God!) then to Chantilly, VA with Melissa Frances, off a week (but was at VBS with my church), then to Atlanta with Melissa Frances!

Wheew!  Only wish I got to scrap during that time.  Sometimes I feel like I’ve lost the love of this industry and its just become a job.  Then I do a layout and remember why I love it!  OOOh I do have a layout to show you!  I did this one for Scrapbook Chicks and they featured it on the Finished in Fifteen!  Take a look:

That used the My Mind’s Eye Jack and Jill line!  I love it!  I love getting that box from Scrapbook Chicks.  It’s like Christmas!  Yay!

Tonight on Scrapbook Chicks blog they are doing a Finished in Fifteen!  It will be great!

So what am I working on now?  Let’s see. . . just booked the fall retreat (more about that in a couple of days), just got my box from Scrapbook Chicks (yay!), oh!, and I am working on Back to School gifts for teachers.  Any fabulous ideas?  I want to do a hybrid card, so I’ll share the art I do for that.  Other than that, I’m golden for another two and a half weeks.  Maybe I can clean my house in that time. Yeah right!

Talk to you soon!  (Maybe tomorrow!)

Happy Scrappy,
Mandie
