We're Back!!!


Just this past weekend, we hosted our Spring Scrapbooking Retreat at the beautiful Oakwood Inn & Resort, located in Grand Bend, Ontario.  Ladies, it was amazing!!  We will be hosting EVERY retreat there!!!  Hopefully by the end of the day today we will have confirmed the date for our Fall Retreat with Oakwood and can start registration!!

We can not say enough great things about Oakwood, the staff, the food, the accommodations, the food, the lake side setting, did I mention the food?!?  Seriously, the food......delicious and so much of it!! 

We would like to thank all the ladies that joined us!  It was a great group, there was so much laughter, crafting, singing, tom-foolery over the whole weekend!!  We really can't wait to do it again!  There were several die-hard scrappers there who managed to do all-nighters!!  The projects that were created over the course of the weekend were outstanding!  So much talent in that room!!  Here is the lovely Susan, holding up the stunning invitation she created:

Oakwood Inn and Resort is located right on the shores of Lake Huron.  It was a little nippy on the weekend, but that didn't stop most of us from at least visiting the beach.  (Some of us (Sheila!) needed to bundle up a little more than others!) 

The tree lined road down to the beach:

 We had a lot of fun with the raffle table, and the BINGO games. Here is Sheila and Kelly who won, not one, not two but THREE of the raffle prizes!  Lucky gal!!!! Congrats to all our winners!! 

We forgot to get a group picture of everyone on Saturday (sorry ladies! still new at this!), but we did gather most of us out on the deck on Sunday for these group photos:

 Ladies you were all so much FUN!!!!  
Thanks again, times a bazillion, we can't wait to do this again!!!!!
