What an adventure our October weekend retreat turned out to be...the venue we were booked into fell through 2 weeks before due to new owners who decided that we couldn't rent the hall 24/7 but had to pack up ALL our stuff at 11.30pm to then haul it all back in again at 8am each morning! A retreat where we cannot create all day and night...well we said forget it!
Then the panic set in....
We had all the ladies booked and raring to go so we spent that day and evening on the internet and phone to find most venues booked but we eventually found somewhere that would fit us all in...just!
So...emails were sent out...the ladies rallied around and really supported our new venue decision and it ended up (once again) being a fabulous retreat!
The Pink and Pearls came out on Saturday night after great company and a meal with everyone at the restaraunt.
We followed this with bubbly and a chocolate fountain...strawberries and marshmallows dipped in chocolate...YUM who could resist!
Queen Louise won the dress up comp and the Scrap Pack Challenges were won by Alison and Bec who were both new to a Creatively Inspired retreat.
Lisa gets special mention for scrapping through both Friday and Saturday nights again...and once again we wondered how she did it!!
We once again had some fabulous new products in the shop and
Scrappy gave out plenty of awsome prizes as usual!
All in all we had a fantastic time...we made some new friends, caught up with some old ones, scrapped really great pages, made some wonderful cards and came away with fabulous memories...can't wait to do it all again next year in May!
