And this one time...... at scrap camp......

I went on my annual weekend scrapbooking retreat at the beginning of April. Nor'Mom' came to help Greg out with the pack o'kids. My girlfriends Erin and Janice went again this year too. It was a blast, I got a TON done (which was amazing considering I had spent NO time preparing anything....) and fun was had by all!

This where Erin and I sit. We got to camp way early to get the same table we sat at last year. It overlooks a big meadow, complete with grazing deer. But it also has some glare from the windows, we sit here because it has blinds!! We all sit out in an enclosed porch. The last 2 yrs have been great, the first year we FROZE, it was windy and rainy. All the tarps on the floor were flappin in the breeze. The freezing breeze!
This is my space. The unreal amount of stuff I brought with me...... the total value of everyone's stuff is probably over a million dollars!!!!
All in all, the weekend was fun, I can't wait to go back next year. The weekend went by wayyyyyy too fast......

On another note, I worked on a few pages for the album of a friend of a friend's daughter. She is undergoing chemo and her Mom wanted to give her a scrapbook of her life (lump in throat just typing that....) I was honored to do the first page.

And another few pages:

This one is a 'scraplift' of my friend Sonda's page, from the Scrapjazz crop in February. Thanks Sonda - great page, worked for the picture perfectly!!

Oh I'm sooooo jealous now. Seriously. Scrap Camp. I think I'm going to have to steal that idea!

Glad you had fun! I wish I could just go away!! :-)

OMG!! Ok, so the stuff you took with you looks like about the total of all my loot. No wonder you were able to get lots done. I haven't scrapped in forever. It's needing to be moved up higher on my list of things to do. Pool is priority 1 right now. Grrr...can't wait for the finished product.
