Happy Monday!

I am back from my scrap retreat and what a retreat it was! We had a fantastic time! If you are in the Southern California area, you should definitely check it out. It's called the Scrap Retreat at French Valley. Amazing house, beautifully decorated and decked out for a scrapbooker. The owners gave us the best customer service! We had a great time, even if I only got 10 layouts done. Yes...10 layouts in 4 days. Pretty sad, but I don't really mind! Heehee!!

Here's the scrap room:


The room was so big and we each had a 6 foot table. And there was an ipod docking station and speakers all throughout the ceiling. Awesome! Here is part of our group, doing some pineapple vodka shots on Friday night. Have to stay awake to scrap, right???



On Saturday we threw a surprise baby shower for one of our friends and it was awesome. She was super surprised! My sister and I made this great drink called The Dirty Diaper for the baby shower. It was like a Mudslide (vodka, kahula, bailey's, chocolate liquor) and it was garnished with a little Baby Ruth candy bar. I made a regular chocolate shake for the preggo one!! I got this great photo of all of us after the shower:



I don't have any photos of the layouts I did at the retreat, but I will share something I did right before I left. I am now designing for More Than Scrapbooking, an awesome monthly kit club!! Their September kit is all about the new line Delilah from Bo Bunny. These papers are amazing!! Here are my projects so far with the kit...




The kit includes matching flowers, buttons, and Bo Bunny stamps. You should definitely check it out. Thanks for stopping by...I am sooo behind on visiting all my bloggy friends, but I plan of catching up this week!
