Welcome Summer !

Well, you know it's summer when I am too busy to post on my blog! LOL.  Been keeping the granddaugther so we have been busy crafting, watching Disney movies and such. Don't know where the days just slip away.

My dad had two surgeries this month, happy to report he is recovering well from them but it has taken up some of my time as well.

And my Scrapbook classes at Michael's have been doing great and also taking up a bit of my time each week as well.

However, this past weekend I was able to sneak away for a 4 day scrapbook retreat at Elm Street Crafters Retreat in Denton, TX.  It was a lot of fun and the place was fabulous !  If you are looking for a retreat place, definitely check this one out. Very comfortable crop room, comfy beds and great can't go wrong with that combination.  And the owner, Penni, is super sweet and funny !  We adopted her immediately in to our group as one of us.  Next time we go up there to her place, she wants to take time off from work and do the weekend with us as a crafter since we really hit it off with her.  She has been open since January and this is her dream.  So far, she is making this our dream place too !  Thanks Penni.

Here are a few pics of our group thanks to the photgraphic talents of Crystal Kovach.

Top Row LtoR: Me, Katie, Amy, Melissa, Lis, Jill, Lindsey

Even with a margaritas machine (thanks Lindsey) running round the clock, we all still got a ton of scrapping done. Or maybe that's the reason we got that much done...LOL.  Check back tomorrow and I will post some pics of my retreat weekend creations.
