Scrapbooking Retreat

This last weekend, I tried something brand spankin’ new…a scrapbooking retreat! Thanks to the invitation from my wonderful friend at work, I spent the entire weekend in Roanoke at Oak Street Cottage.  It was AMAZING! First of all, the accommodations were pristine.  The cottage was super cute, super clean and had 4 1/2 baths.  With 12 women, you cannot beat that!  The twin beds had the most comfy pillow top and beautiful duvet covers.  We all signed up for a meal/snack, so the food was delicious!  I had some blueberry frenchtoast like cobbler thing for breakfast that was UN-believable.  But my friend and I did get in a little Babe’s because it was withing walking distance.  We just got it to-go!

The charm of the home was unmatched, however, by the kind and accepting women I met on the trip.  Only knowing one person, I was a wee bit nervous, but I shouldn’t have been! These scrappers were serious, but so kind and friendly. The scrapbooking abilities I saw in the two large workrooms covering the 8 foot tables was amazing.  Tools, glitter, Stickles, punches, Cricut cartridges and some thing that turns ANYTHING into a sticker were a few of the overwhelming sights. By the end of the weekend, I had twelve more pages scrapped and felt very productive…although one super effeicient, super creative woman finished 44!  I can only hope they will invite me again!
