Another wonderful weekend
This is getting to be a habit - lucky me - was off to a scrap retreat this past weekend just outside of Drayton Valley. They have the best scrap store there called From My Heart. The ladies who own the store are simply the best. The weekend was held at a small community hall - called Easyford about 5 miles west of DV - lots of the ladies stayed in 5th wheels but Colleen and I decided a hotel was the best way to go. So about 11:00 each night (Friday and Saturday) we took off and drove back to DV and slept in the best, most comfortable beds. We had to be back for breakfast which was at 9 each morning. The first night was a pizza PJ party with donations going for Breast Cancer - they collected over $150 which will go to buying a TV for those having Chemo. Food was great - catered by some local amazing cooks - am sure I gained weight with all the wonderful food they served. There were lots of unbelievable door prizes and prizes from the scrap fairy....so I got to spend a weekend with a bunch of very creative women who love to scrap, chat and have lots of fun sharing their skills, supplies and knowledge. The very best part was we each had a whole table to ourselves - no bumping into each other - lots and lots of room to spread out and create - wonderful, just wonderful. I believe a good time was had by all. Here are some pictures from the weekend.
