Retreat Success!

Well, I am home from my weekend in the hills with all my good friends.  We ate, we laughed, we cut and we glued!  Another amazing weekend at Storm Mountain Retreat center with the girls.  I love February and I know that most of the women that come to the retreat look forward to it all year long, just like I do. 

This year, I didn't have very big goals.  I wanted to start a mini album for a friend of my son, and make a mini for me.  I also knew that I needed to crank out some cards to send to Afghanistan. I haven't sent any in awhile and I am falling behind on my commitment of a box a month.   And so, my final report is, my album - finished, the mini for John - started, and 100 cards made to go to Afghanistan.  Not bad for a weekend of work, especially when I was miserable with a cold.  Yuck.  It put a little damper on this years retreat, but not much. 

Now, I have to show you the album I made for myself.  I am so happy with it. 

 Isn't this stamp cool?  I love the filmstrip mutating into butterflies.

 I love these little stamps by CTMH.  They are the perfect accent for this page.

 A girl's gotta have some bling, don't you think?
 Another stamp from CTMH on the right page.  Great accent stamp.
Here's a closer look.  I think a person could do alot with this stamp set! 

Anyway, that is the mini album I finished at retreat.  I can't wait to find the time to get some pictures in there.  Of course, I have to find pictures of me first, that is the hardest part.  I hope you are better at getting your picture taken than I am!  I will post more pictures from the retreat soon.  C
