October retreat 09

Well I must say I had an awesome weekend at our retreat!  I never know what I enjoy more, the people, the stampin time or the fact that I don’t have to cook for three days!!! Here’s a few piccies I’d like to share!:

Now these girls have been with me since the beginning of Stampin’ Up!  They are one of my original groups of customers and I have always loved doing workshops for them as they live within a street of eachother and their workshops are always fun!  Early on I referred to them (mainly in my head) as “The Warner Girls”  They have attended all three of my retreats and the last retreat they discovered (I’m stil not sure how 🙂 my nickname” for them.  They told me they expected a “Warner Girls” sign for next retreat, which I provided on their unit door (forgot to take a piccie of that)  But the funniest thing was that they turned up with awesome T Shirts as well!!!!




 Now another thing I love about retreat is the total mess we can make, and how everyone loves to bring as many supplies as possible!!!  On the way out to dinner on evening, I looked over the room and it was so great to see such a total mess of stamping and scrapbooking supplies!!! (you can click the pics to see it better)





I also love seeing the challenges that I set for everyone.  Here’s the submissions from the first two challenges:




The third Challenge was a hard one – simply a Stampin’ Up! Cello Bag and a piece of linen thread… I’ll show you more tomorrow but this one made by a cheeky Trish Myers made me chuckle (again click to enlarge)


There are just too many pics to put here, and I’ll pop back tomorrow to show you some of the make and takes we did as well as other entries for the third challenge!!  I think I have finally caught up on my sleep and am taking bookings for next years retreatS!!!!  Yes there will be two again – April 16th to 18th and October 29th to 30th .  These are both already heavily booked so if you are interested in attending let me know ASAP and I can give you more info and how to book as well!!!

    I had an absolutely fantastic time Kim. So did Kerry. I’m sure the other girls at our table will agree. Kerry and I are definitely in for the next two. lol
    Thanks for all the hard work you put into the weekend.
