Scrapbooking Retreat at Pens and Needles Lakeside, Detroit Lakes, MN

 OK, so this past weekend I made a trip back to MN for a Scrapbooking Retreat with my 5 Sisters and Mom, along with some neices, a cousin and great friends!  What can I say there is nothing like 3 days of pure scrappin' and card making.  What a great time!  Above is a photo of just some of the fun, the wrapping up of a Stampin' Up! workshop put on by my newest recruit (my Mom) and in the back a Tastefully Simply demonstration....we never had a dull moment.
 Pens and Needles Lakeside is such a wonderful place, just LOOK at the design studio!  Each person has an 8 foot table for crafting may look like a mess, but many pages were done in just 3 days!  And some come for the fun and company and do there digital scrapbooking....actually, I wonder if they might just come for the good food and beverage...  :-)  hehehe!
 Here are some of the pages we did, we voted on who had the best layout, those in the picture all tied for 2nd and 3rd places...
 And here is our group, the Design DIVA'S, what a CREATIVE BUNCH!
Cindy, Mary, Marlene, Renee, Colleen, Trish, Karen, Leanne
Ruth, Rosemary, Erlene, Shirlee, Becky, Kari
Rachel, Megan, Katy and Olivia

Birthday Birdie

Here is a little card using Soft Suede CS as the base, embossed with the square lattice embossing folder.  I used some Botanical Gazette DSP and the bird is from the Nature Walk set from the Occasion's Mini catalog.  I used Not Quite Navy ink and paper to matte the bird image.  Also used on this card; Modern Label Punch, Word Window Punch and Silver brads....ENJOY and THINK SPRING!
