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


  1. So I am a little behind in blog hoppin'! But this looks like sooooo much fun--OMG! I wish I could have been there--it would have been nice to be somewhere inside out of the snow and slop of calving!
