Retreat was AWESOME!

What a crazy weekend! This trip was my first "retreat" as a scrapbooker, so was unsure what to expect. But man, were my expectations exceeded! Kristi and I arrived around 5pm Thursday evening. We had time to unpack, eat dinner, then dive into our scrapbooking! I powered through 35 pages (26 layouts), in three days. At the end of the weekend, I was amazed how much I had accomplished! I would stay up until 2 or 3 am, and wake up at 8:30 the next morning, ready to scrapbook. I had gathered all my photos, paper, and a sketch for each layout, so I was able to cut down the amount of thinking I had to do!

This was the group from our cabin. We had such a fun bunch of women!

The Palouse Divide Lodge.

Kristi and me. We had such a blast! She and I get along so well, and I am blessed to have such a fantastic friend. Love ya', Kristi!

Tami and Cory...these two are crazy! The "broke into" our cabin, using their crop-a-dile and adhesive gun as weapons! It was hard to take them too seriously in their crowns and camo face paint! Not to mention their pink camo t-shirts... :-)

We took Kristi's station wagon on our trip, and man can you cram it full of stuff! This is what it looked like when we were all packed up...

Hopefully I will be posting layouts soon! I have to head into Spokane tomorrow to pick up my books, school starts on Wednesday for me! Yikes! I am soooo not ready! I am going to be stopping in Loon Lake to visit with some of Mark's family we haven't seen in a while. Wednesday I need to get down to Crop, Paper, Scissors to prep for my layout class (next Mon. night at 6:30p!). Friday night is the Nez Perce fair, and Saturday is kit club! Sunday, DishNetwork comes to see about hooking up a satellite, and Monday is a class! So I am going to be busy, busy busy this week, but I am looking forward to it!

Had a blast with you girlfriend. I haven't met many women who can keep up with my obsession for scrapbooking, but you are definitely one of them! Love you.
