I had a wonderful time at Creative Retreat last weekend.  Ronda Wade and Tamie Ackerson totally spoiled all 60 of us that attended.  The very best thing about going to retreat is spending time with a fabulous bunch of crafters.  I used to be able say "women," but now  say "crafters" because we have one gentleman who has been attending for the last two years.  We had games to play (loved the scavenger hunt), songs to sing, and lots of gifts from Ronda.  We have traditional scrapbookers, Project Life memory keepers, card makers, 3-D crafters, and quilters attending (and I probably forgot a few other crafts).  Let's just put it this way -- the rooms were oozing with artistic talent!!

I spent a little time on my great-granddaughter Hazel's This and That scrapbook album.  A lot of the product I used is discontinued Stampin' Up product that I have hoarded just for my albums -- but everything is Stampin' Up so it all coordinates.  I don't have my pictures of Hazel developed yet but dropped some from my file onto the page (that's why they are a little crooked). Hopefully, these pages will give you some layout inspiration for your own traditional scrapbooking (right-click on the pictures and select "open in new window or tab" to see the details on the pages):

And here is little Hazel a couple of days ago!!
Until next time,
